Toshiba Excite 13-inch Android tablet hands-on

It's time for Toshiba to bring the fire with a real live working unit of the Excite 13-inch tablet at Pepcom during CTIA 2012. This device is a massive yet thin beast running Android 4.0 ICS and toting a taste for full-screen web browsing without a doubt. It's got Gorilla Glass on the front, aluminum on the back, and is surprisingly light for how massive it appears. The display is 13.3-inches of LCD with 1600 x 900 pixels placed upon it - 16:9 for an ideal media experience - if you love gigantic images right in front of your face, of course!

My CES 2012

My CES 2012

There's no larger an event the entire year round for tech bloggers such as I, and at the moment, there's no bigger trade show for Consumer Electronics than CES - this being my first full year attending the events inside and surrounding CES 2012, I thought I'd give you a bit of a look inside what it means to be on the publisher's side of this monster storm of keynotes, meetings, and floor time. Now that the week is over, I've got a couple of moments to sit on the couch and attempt to put down everything that happened (viewable through our [CES LIVE Portal]) without having a heart attack over the sleep I've lost, and I'd like for you to snoop in on the situation from this perspective. Once you've read what I've got to say here, please feel free to ask any questions you might have as well.

Lenovo S2 hands-on

Lenovo S2 hands-on

A surprising amount of fabulous devices were shown this past week by Lenovo to the hordes of press looking to snap shots and take video of the latest and the greatest from the manufacturer as they ran Android for mobile and Windows for both mobile and laptop stations - what the Lenovo S2 represents is the Android world. What Lenovo's got here is another chance for you to take advantage of their unique user interface not unlike what we've also just seen on the world's first Android running an Intel Medfield chip, the Racer-A, aka the K800. This device here, the L2, represents a budget smartphone running that same Android user interface.

Acer Iconia Tab W500 hands-on shows the laptop tablet that wasn’t

Acer Iconia Tab W500 hands-on shows the laptop tablet that wasn’t

We've seen this device before, it having been on display early last year at Mobile World Congress 2011, but it being here at Pepcom during CES 2012 is more than a little telling for a device that was supposed to be a hit with Windows users throughout most of last year. When it comes to convertible tablets, your humble narrator's favorite device is the Transformer Prime, not least of all because it's able to fold down and be a laptop whenever you decide you want to transport it in such a way, not to mention the fact that it's got a fully functional trackpad to make it a high-class convertible in every aspect of the word - so why is it selling off the shelves while the Iconia Tab W500 remains one of the loneliest tablets in Acer's line of otherwise amazing hardware?

Telenav Scout GPS in-car display integration hands-on

At Pepcom during CES 2012 we got the opportunity to hop into a vehicle containing a 7-inch display that would, when connected with Telenav's technology, be able to run all the navigation and service-finding awesomeness we've come to expect from the GPS navigation group. What we got to see what just that, an Android device not only mirroring itself to the display, but displaying a whole different interface made specifically for the 7-inch form factor, it showing maps, favorite places, traffic information, information about the current status of your car, and more. Have a peek as the demonstration speeds its way through downtown Las Vegas.

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.

Dropcam HD hands-on

There's a camera out there today, folks, a camera by the name of Dropcam HD - one that when we got a hands-on look at, we were flabbergasted at the awesomeness and simplicity of as not only is it able to monitor your home environment in a completely non-intrusive way, it's all quite inexpensive. This device is the "easiest way to check in on what you care about" as they say, and is able to work with you to bring the video and images it captures to you need in a rather sleek form factor as well.
