TechRadar hits the highway on cross-country 'Road to CES' webseries

Consumer technology website TechRadar has been tracking its journey to the US’s biggest tech conference with its first live, cross-country series, ‘The Road to CES.’

Through January 7, the series presented by smartphone brand ZTE, shows TechRadar editors Matt Swider and Nick Pino traveling from city to city analyzing an array of consumer gadgets. The journey started in New York City and over seven days is making stops in Washington DC; Knoxville and Memphis, Tennessee; Oklahoma City; Amarillo, Texas; Santa Fe, New Mexico; and Monument Valley, Arizona before their arrival in Las Vegas.

Below, you can find footage from their stop in Knoxville, Tennessee:

Daily vlogs had been shot on ZTE's foldable Axon M smartphone in conjunction with written content on futuristic transportation and tech travel tips. Fans had been keeping up to date on the experience by following the #TRCESRoadTrip and #CES2018 hashtags on social media.

TechRadar's interim editor-in-chief, Marc Chacksfield, said: "“Being the first to test out newly announced gadgets – before consumers have to decide whether to spend money on them – is a key component of what we do at TechRadar. Expanding our 2018 CES editorial series allows us to deliver more hands-on buying advice and video than ever before."
