The Best of CES 2012

Welcome to our massive "best-of" wrap-up for CES 2012, complete with everything from smartphones to PCs and headphones and back, topped off with our own "most used gear" section for the curious. What you'll find is that though there were more exhibitors, attendees, and media attention payed to the show than ever before, the overall result was a lot of the same gear re-hashed with a few new specifications. Pay special close attention to the conclusion of this post for a bit of a whopper if you're a big fan of the largest show of the year here in the United States.

Skype for Windows Phone coming soon says Microsoft

Skype for Windows Phone coming soon says Microsoft

There's been a bit of a tip from no less that Microsoft's own VP of products, Rick Osterloh, on what may very well be coming soon for their Windows Phone mobile platform: Skype! There are a select few applications out there that are so important that the very fact that they're being released on a new system is newsworthy, and Skype is certainly one of them. Microsoft recently acquired Skype (this past October) and has not been vocal about if or when they'd be creating their own version for Windows Phone made to run like a whip for your video chats galore.

Skullcandy Mix Master over-ear headphones hands-on

We decided to go on a bit of a headphones and tiny speakers spree in the last couple of days at CES 2012, ending up all over the place for sound quality and notoriety in the industry, finding such odd gems as this: The Mix Master over-ear headphones by Skullcandy. While you can pick these up in a shiny black version, we went straight for the wildest color scheme we could find, the specs the same no matter which colorway you decide on. These phones hold the special distinction of having Propriety Mylar Drivers approved by none other than Mix Master Mike himself.

AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note LTE in white hands-on

AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note LTE in white hands-on

There's certainly no big amount of difference on the inside of this device when you compare it to the black version of the Galaxy Note, also coming to AT&T soon, but the obsession with the white chassis continues, and the white note looks so good, your humble narrator says, that it deserves its own separate hands-on. I say separate because we did get a hands-on earlier this week with the other color for this device, that being a lovely charcoal black front and back, but now it's time to get pearly with a white that accents not only the monster scale of this device, but it's USA-only set of four capacitive buttons below the display.

LG Android VMware Horizon Mobile hands-on

LG Android VMware Horizon Mobile hands-on

One of the official CES 2012 awards this year, a Design & Engineering Showcase Award to be exact, was awarded to LG Electronics for their groundbreaking implementation of a bit of software by the name of VMware Horizon Mobile. This VMware invention has been around for a few months now, but has never been shown off in a fully functional manner like this, here with LG on their Verizon Mobile 4G LTE LG Revolution device. What it represents is an ability that you, the business person, has to create a sandboxed version of Android running on your device so that you can have added security and perfect version compatibility - that make sense to you? Have a peek at our hands-on video for more insight.

Toshiba L7200 Cinema Series LED Smart 3D TV hands-on

There were no shortage of Smart TV concepts and final executions this year at CES 2012, and Toshiba came packing one of the most awesome selections to the Pepcom event in the L7200 Cinema Series LED Smart 3D TV, one massive customer. This television includes passive 3D, on-board cable program guide, and all the bells and whistles you'd hope any modern Smart TV would hold. And with such a tiny bezel around this display that'll be offered in two sizes this spring, 47-55 inches never looked so gigantic - or if it did, it looks bigger than ever now!
