2012 CES Standouts

The always incredible Consumer Electronics Show (CES) recently wrapped in Las Vegas. Every year we are shown the future of electronics. And, every year we are amazed by what is on display for us Earthlings. A “show” that features over 2700 exhibitors makes it difficult to shine a light on a small few. But, being that we can’t possibly talk about every single piece of awesomeness at this year’s CES, we’ll mention a few standouts:

If you’ve never heard of OLED screens (organic light emitting diode), not to worry, because this is the year you realize that you can’t live without an OLED TV. The fine folks at LG introduced their first 55-inch OLED TV at CES  and with its ultra-thin panel, exceptional color, blazing speed and utter largeness, it really doesn’t get any better than this. Watching a movie at home – 1. Watching a movie at the theatre – 0.

Nokia Lumia 900
With its impressive screen size and fast connection, this Windows Phone looks to be one to compete with. The phone’s sharp lines and colors really stand out and with its stylish design, you won’t feel like you’re one step behind everyone else in the smartphone coolness factor.

Razer Project Fiona
For all the gamers out there, you must check out Fiona, the first true Windows 8 gaming tablet. Just viewing this spectacular device makes you feel like you’ve stumbled upon a secret, futuristic society where everything is run from this screen. Although the concept tablet was rolled out at CES, Razer does intend to release its final version to the masses this fall. (Priced below $1,000.)

Sony Tablet P
Would it be wrong to call a tablet sexy and adorable? Then call us wrong because that’s exactly what the Sony Tablet P is. With its dual 5.5-inch touchscreens, the foldable device is small enough to fit in your pocket, yet stylish enough that you won’t want to. The 4-G wonder runs on Google’s Android operating system and is Playstation Certified. Sexy and adorable, just like we said.

Intel Nikiski See-Through Notebook
Wouldn’t it be great to see what time your next meeting is without having to open up your laptop? With Nikiski, now you can! With a see-through glass touchpad that turns into a touchscreen when you close it, all of your information is still at your fingertips. You can easily check your email, view your calendar and tune in to your social network feeds without flipping it open. Pretty sweet.
