On Thursday, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) packed its proverbial bag and hopped on an Amtrak up to New York City for its annual CES Unveiled New York event. The show, like usual, included a press conference where the association could highlight some of the key trends in consumer technology. But CTA also talked to the press about some of the new and improved areas on the CES show floor for 2018, and the results of its Pre Black Friday consumer survey.

According to the survey, 61 percent of consumers said they planned to use their smartphone for holiday shopping, followed by laptops (54 percent), and desktop computers (46 percent).
Additionally, 19 percent of U.S. adult shoppers said they plan to use a voice-activated speaker—such as an Amazon Echo or Google Home—to shop online during the holidays.
