On Friday, we launched a new product for Engadget called Engadget Mini: the first test of a new microblogging platform we built for delivering real-time updates of all sorts of different content, including headlines, links, photos, videos, tweets, and comments.

We made this because we wanted to create a new kind of content experience designed for the screen in your pocket, not the one on your desk. We also wanted something that reflected the ways media has changed over the years, so there's a big emphasis in Mini on curating great content from across the social web.

Why launch at CES? Because there is no bigger event in the consumer electronics world, and we thought it'd be great to offer a real-time stream of everything interesting, important, and fun going on at the show.

We're going to keep Engadget Mini going after CES ends, and after making some improvements from what we learn over the course of the week, we hope to bring Mini to other brands here at AOL later this year. You can find it on the right-rail of Engadget.com and at mini.engadget.com, but the best way to experience Engadget Mini is on your phone or tablet using the iOS and Android apps that are available for it.
