    I’ve not seen many annocment of yet but I have seen nvedia portable console project shield that does look like it will overtake portable gaming because the fact it is able to play pc games and games from the play store

      Sadly you have to own an Nvidia graphics card and I’ve yet to own one that has lasted longer than a week after its warranty runs out :(

      So I won’t be purchasing one of these sadly as I also don’t want the extra expense of a £200 for a new graphics card to make use of all its functions

    Best tablet: Vizio 10-inch with Tegra 4 (only tablet with Tegra 4?)
    Best smartphone: Sony Xperia Z
    Best gaming device: NVIDIA Shield

      Xperia Z is the nicest phone I have ever seen. That thing is unreal. Here is to hoping that Sony makes a Nexus next year.

    With Intel’s press conference coming up at 3pm CT and Samsung at 4pm CT. They should have some new things to show off.

    I agree with Taylor in that I also find those three devices as my favorites so far. We’ll see how things change as the day progresses.

      Best Android Camera: Polaroid iM1836

    I am waiting for the device that blows me away. Haven’t seen it yet. With that said I do like the Sony Experia Z.

  • jamal adam

    It looks to me like Qualcomm is going to give Tegra 4 a run for it’s money with their new Snapdragon 800 processor, perhaps even with the Snapdragon 600.

    • gmaninvan

      I agree but it is hard to say until we see hard numbers. Those 72 graphics cores are nothing to sneeze at.

  • jaxidian

    Overall, this has been a very ho-hum CES, I think…

      I was expecting more than what I saw. It was a little underwhelming but it definitely had its moments. I guess the biggest surprise was the NVIDIA Shield, which was exciting. I guess it’s on to WMC and what is in store for us there.

  • SGB101

    Love the Lenovo table, and the price seems good too.

    I am excited about what the mobile market has the potential to do this year. At CES, you saw the unveiling of Ubuntu phone, plus Nvidia unleashed the Tegra 4. You also saw Samsung show their Exynos 5 processor, and Intel entering the mobile computing market. You have Tizen coming later this year as well as BB10. So, instead of having 3 main platforms in the mobile world, you will now have 6. On top of having Intel, Qualcom, Nvidia, and Samsung chipsets to choose from. I think Google is going to have to stwp their game up even more, now that they are having to compete with 5 other platforms and not just Apple and Windows Mobile. Plus, I think as consumers we are going to have more of a choice and see a greater level of inovation in the mobile world. At least, I am hoping so.
