CES 2012

Will the AT&T Nokia Lumia 900 be Priced to Succeed?

Will the AT&T Nokia Lumia 900 be Priced to Succeed?

CES 2012 has drawn to a close, and if you'd said twelve months ago that Nokia would leave the show having introduced one of the stand-out products, the industry would've laughed you out of Vegas. Sure enough, though, the AT&T Nokia Lumia 900 is on everyone's lips, delivering the slick style of the first Lumia 800 with the sort of big screen and capable camera dominating the smartphone market today. Rumors suggest it'll drop in March, but is Nokia ready to price the LTE Lumia to succeed?

Sony Google TV second generation hands-on

Smart TVs were a running theme of CES this year, but the Google TV platform didn't get a lot of love. Aside from a chipset demonstration from Marvell and some lip service from LG, only Sony showed off real progress for the the Android-based integrated TV service.

CES 2012 comes to a close as SlashGear exits Las Vegas

We've had one whole heck of a lot of fun this past week at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show, but all good things must come to a close, and so too must we exit Las Vegas Nevada. What we've seen has been wrapped up a bit by Chris Davies in a set of posts listed later in this post, but we've got plenty of content left to go - stacks of hands-on video and photos of oddities, hidden treasures, and items that require just a bit more in-depth processing than your average feature from across the show floor for you to peek at throughout the weekend. That said, we'd like to thank everyone at CES for all your hard work and for making such an event of massive size take place for the pleasure of us and our readers.

Canon’s new ELPH saves you from photobombs

Canon's new ELPH series point-and-shoots had already impressed us with their ability to recognize up to twelve faces and prioritize babies in-frame, but apparently the tech can also help avoid random photobombs too. The system - once taught what your friends and family look like - can automatically lock focus on them, rather than any strangers in view, as Digital Trends' video demonstrates after the cut.

Sharp AQUOS Freestyle battery-powered HDTV is truly wireless

Normally when thinking about portable TVs, you think about tiny screens and bulky plastic - not so in the case of Sharp's AQUOS Freestyle line. All three televisions can display full 1080p video via a wireless base station, but the smallest - and in this case, the most interesting - can run even without a power cable. The 20-inch HDTV includes a built-in battery.

Their Shine series of projectors combines small size, big definition and affordability to make an attractive little package. The company gave us a demonstration of the upcoming hardware at CES.

Intel sticks with Netbooks, touts full package mobile proposition

At our meeting this week with Intel's Mark Miller and John Wallace, we spoke primarily about mobile, and as the conversation moved beyond smartphones and tablets and laptops came up, it was the word Netbook that got our attention. What Miller had to say about the Netbook as it stands today is not that it's time to be done with that classification of device even though more powerful mobile devices are on the rise. Instead the task, he said, was to show consumers what the difference between the types of devices are so that they can make an informed decision.

Intel dedicates itself a more diverse mobile future

Late in the week on the fourth full day of CES 2012, we got the opportunity to sit down with Intel's Mark Miller to speak about Medfield, Clover Trail, and the future of mobile computing in the Intel environment. What Intel intends on bringing to the market is not just powerful devices such as tablets, but these devices with elements of differentiation in the silicon itself rather than in the device's specifications. With both Medfield and Clover Trail in the works for Android and Windows 8, Intel is aiming to take on the mobile world with a vengeance.
