As always, CNET has come out with the best of CES 2012. CES 2012 has some amazing products, but below are the best, according to CNET.
- BEST OF SHOW: LG 55-inch OLED TV. This TV was stunning. Only 4mm (millimeters thick)… that’s thinner then a pencil. You could barely see the screen when you looked at it on the side. What’s better? LG says by 2016 a OLED TV like this one will cost about the same as a LCD TV today. WOW. We strongly agree with CNET’s choice on this product.
- PEOPLE’S VOICE: Razor Project Fiona. This is an amazing Windows 8 Gaming tablet. It looks fantastic, although it is only a concept so far. It has Intel’s i7 processor, a solid state drive, 10.1 inch screen, with a 1280 x 800 resolution. apparently it will have the battery life of a Laptop, not a Tablet. The tablet will also have an Android overlay.
- SMARTPHONE: Nokia Lumia 900. The phone, running Windows Phone 7 impressed all with a 4.3 inch AMOLED screen, a front-facing camera, dual LED flash, 16GB memory, and is available in Black and Blue. This phone looks fantastic.
- CAMERA: Fujifilm X-PRO 1: This new camera is the world’s first mirror less camera. The camera is estimated to be about $1700. The camera has 3 lenses (each about $650) a 18mm f2, a 35mm f1.4, and a 60mm f2.4 macro. The LCD screen has 1.4 million pixels. The camera can shoot video at 1080p.
- EMERGING TECHNOLOGY: Makerbot Replicator. The Makerbot is a (amazing) 3D printer. This Makerbot Replicator can “make anything”. The Replicator starts at $1799.
- COMPUTER: HP Envy 14 Spectre. This is HP’s first consumer-focused Ultrabook. The screen is 1600 x 900 pixels. It will have a 128 GB solid state drive, along with likely a i(3,5 or 7) intel processor. The ultrabook is expected to cost about $1399.
- TABLET: Asus Memo 370T. This 7 inch tablet from Asus made a splash at CES 2012. Especially with the price point of only $250. It has 1GB RAM, and at least 16GB storage. It will have a Micro-USB port and a micro SD and HDMI reader as well.
- SOFTWARE: Bluestacks for Windows 8. This app lets you run Android apps in Windows 8. With so many Android apps available this will be extremely convenient to consumers. So much so, it will be included in Windows 8.
