Friday 07 January 2011
The 44th International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is underway in Las Vegas and already there has been an overwhelming onslaught of high-tech, eye-boggling consumer electronics products on show.
A look at some of the stand out devices appearing at CES so far.
The most powerful smartphone in the world is also a laptop in disguise
Motorola's dual-core ATRIX 4G smartphone is powerful enough to transform into a fully functioning netbook when teamed up with Motorola's Laptop Dock accessory.
Thinnest Android device also comes with the largest screen
Samsung's Infuse 4G has a massive 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, 1.2 GHz processor and measures in at just 9 millimeters (thinner than both the iPhone 4 and Optimus Black).
The first tablet to run Google's Android 3.0 Honeycomb
While its operating software is still not finished, Motorola Mobility, Inc.'s XOOM tablet is shaping up to be one of the most promising tablets on the CES show room floor.
A smartphone that's slimmer and brighter than the rest
LG's Optimus Black has the world's brightest mobile screen, a 4-inch NOVA display. At 9.2 mm thin it also temporarily held the title of the world's slimmest smartphone.
World's thinnest all-in-one PC
Lenovo's IdeaCentre A320 AIO is an iconic desktop computer with an ultra-slim design. It measures just 18.5 mm at its thinnest point and has a 21.5-inch widescreen display.
A compact camera that is connected to your world
Samsung's SH100 WiFi camera is a connected device that lets you instantly and wirelessly share your photos with friends, family and DLNA-enabled devices.
A unique touchscreen QWERTY-slider tablet
The 10.1 inch IPS touchscreen Asus Eee Pad Slider is a tablet that transforms into a laptop, sliding up to reveal a full keyboard.
An operating system built for tablets
Google previewed its totally revamped Android operating system, Android 3.0 Honeycomb, at CES. The large-screen-only OS has a virtual and holographic user interface, refined multitasking, 3D maps, and offers users a new 3D experience.
A super-slim, beautifully designed laptop
Samsung's Series 9 laptop is the company's super-slim assault against Apple's Macbook Air. The "ultra premium" 13.3-inch laptop weighs less than 3 lbs (1.4kg) and has a 0.64 inch (1.6cm) profile.
A tablet-notebook hybrid
Samsung's Sliding PC 7 Series tablet is a lightweight, portable Windows 7 tablet that converts into a laptop-like device with a simple slide.
A personal energy generator
nPower PEG is a lightweight and portable "Personal Energy Generator" that can be used to refuel your power-hungry devices out in the wild. The PEG stores kinetic energy generated from your movement and use it to power your electronic devices.
A dock and radio that turn your iPhone into a car stereo
Oxygen Audio's O Car system is the world's first iPhone docking system designed to integrate your iPhone in the car.
3D camcorders for consumers
