    Every year I look forward to this event and then some through out the year. Though it is not open to public but it doesn't stop me from wanting to attend to one, at least for once. Anyway, CES 2012 is this Tuesday, Jan 10. Lets post the gadgets that catch your attention and discuss.

    3M Touch Systems 46-inch Projected Capacitive Display

    m-touch-systems-inch-projected-capacitiv



    3M Touch Systems has a host of other, smaller-sized models in its touch arsenal, but the 1080p resolution on its 46-inch prototype is indeed the most impressive. Initially split up into four distinct screens, a toggle allows users to swap between dual-screen mode for convenient multi-tasking and a single screen for uninterrupted viewing of applications and content. There's also the ability to press an onscreen button and rotate an isolated screen. To give us a sense of its usefulness, the company pre-loaded the table with a few demos, taking us through a Twitter feed, Food and Drink ordering menu and browser, amongst others.

    LG's ultra-def 4k 84'' display

    20-LG-84-UD-TV.jpg

    LG's ultra-def 4k display, which packs four times the pixels as a 1080p set. It's mind-bogglingly crisp and enormously enormous. Available this July (at 84, 60, and 72 inches) for what's sure to be a startling amount, the 3480 x 2160 ultra-def LM9600 beasts will come with all the nice bullet points as the lesser LCD sets: 3D, dual-core picture processing, and motion-controlled "smart TV" apps—plus voice recognition. This starship of a TV can only do so much on paper, so we're eager to put our retinas on it as soon as we can. Still, it's enough to take some of that mythical luster off the Apple TV. Eight million pixels plus voice control.

    I think CES 2012 is all about the ultrabooks. I was hoping for some more micro 4/3 cameras, but looks like Fuji is the only one offering anything new.

    I think that the Nokia Lumnia 900 is a sexy looking phone. What does it offer to existing iPhone and Android users?? Very little to nothing.......

    What does it offer to those who still do not own a "smart phone".....another choice....and anyone can appreciate that.....except for Apple and Google.

    They are taking a large risk, but the Metro UI is very crisp and innovative; the trick will be getting enough market permissivity for people to actually interact and like the device (cause it is a very attractive UI). There are a lot of false myths about Microsoft products among the retail community.

    Sure Nokia is king when it come to designing hardware and advertising their products but like I said it before, and I'm going to say it again, you scroll yourself to dead before you get something done on a Windows phone. The UI need to be redesigned for a more easy friendly user experience. Its sad Nokia abandon Meego icon_sad.gif

    Speaking of which, I'm so excited to see what Sony has in store for this year. Talk about revamp the company and making it work unlike Motorola Three years ago I thought the company was about to call it quit but they decided to ditch Java Platform, lame ass WM and jump on the Android wagon - best thing ever ! Anyway here's their latest Xperia

    776935b3f774e23d6ba530d28c32649d.jpg

    Xperia Ion (left) and Xperia S

    The the Xperia S (pictured right) is essentially the international version of the Xperia ion we covered earlier today (pictured left). Same 12MP camera, same 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor, same NFC chip (woo!). It's also got a 1280x720 BRAVIA Reality Display, but this one is only 4.3-inches vs. the ion's big ol' 4.6-incher. The biggest difference is that the Xperia S is non-LTE and it will be available globally in yet-to-be-named select markets (the ion is an AT&T exclusive).

    The UI is different. I have an iPhone 4 as my personal phone, and a Windows Phone 7 as an evaluation phone for work. I hated the UI at first because it was something different. And that's just human nature. If it's different from your norm, you'll feel inefficient and will hate it (e.g the jump from Office 2003 to 2007). But as I used it more, I found the UI (although different) pretty intuitive, neat, clean, and integrates very well. The People hub integrates your contacts very well (facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Email,etc) among your contacts. Overall, I think it's a modern mobile OS and a good one. It does have its flaws, but so do the other big 2 mobile OSes.

    Now with that being said, as I stated before, it really doesn't offer anything new or innovating to current iOS and Android users. I don't expect a mass exodus of people making the switch to WP7. Although I'm sure there will be some, but not a whole lot if you look at the big picture. I'm sticking with my iPhone, at least for the near future. WP7 is a great OS though, and integrating the Nokia services with it is a good move. But MS are really late in the game, so I doubt it will be as successful as they hope.

    Also, yeah there's the anti-Microsoft people who hate anything MS just because they're Microsoft. Those are usually the people who have a PHd in Gizmodo with a specialization in ArsTechnica. For some reason, they think they're software and mobile design engineers because they waste their first two hours of the morning at work reading SlashDot. Yet, if they had the knowledge of basic microprocessor architecture and operating system theory, they wouldn't be making such ignorant comments. But I'll refrain from that.

    The more I see of Windows mobile, the more I'm intrigued. I wish they were planning to put more of the upcoming Mango on view! At this point iOS and Android need to get some major overhauls in interface ...just to keep us interested and engaged.

    Careful, Windows Mobile does not equal Windows Phone 7. Windows Mobile 6 is a completely different OS (old school). Windows Phone 7 was redesigned and re-written from the ground up. "Mango" (Windows Phone 7.5) has been released for a while now. There are some phones that come installed with it already.

    Unless you just hate your current OS (Android or iOS), I see no reason to make the switch. But if this is your first modern smart phone, then WP7 is definitely a good choice. Go to a store, try them out and see what you like.The more choices, the better.

    I think one of the main mistakes that Microsoft made was keeping the "Windows" name in their Windows Phone 7 mobile OS. The uniformed masses just assumed it was a continuation of the previous Windows Mobile. And that was enough to scare them away to iOS and Android.

    Anyways, now that WP7 has some sexy hardware from Nokia, I think people will come around. But most die hard Nokia fans will stick with their Symbian phones until it dies.

    LOL thats so true, but hey you gotta give credit for Symbian, its so well build and loaded with functionality. they rarely need major OS update, if you can pass the not so attractive UI. If you ever used a Symbian mobile you will understand, you dont need to download apps for every freaking things such as timer and stopwatch icon_sad.gif its all in there, even the small thing like PIM function is better on Symbian than other OS

    Yeah, Symbian isn't too bad. I considered getting an E71 years ago. But I forgot why I didn't get it.

    The new Xperia phones are hot too. Unless Samsung releases a Galaxy S3 with puppies and rainbows, I think my next phone will be one of those Xperias.

    Anyways, I went to CES back in early 2000's. It was huge and I didn't get to see everything. I'm not sure if they still have it, but the adult entertainment section was a waste of time. I dropped by to see what the hoopla was about. It was so freakin crowded. Nothing but nerds and desperate executive types wanting to get pics of their favorite porn stars. icon_lol.gif

    E71 was one of the best Eclass smartphone from Nokia, it was selling like hot cake. I miss my E71 icon_sad.gif I have the xperia arc, not too bad, build quality isnt the main selling point but Sony twisted the UI, it look very good, clean and simple, just the way i think it should be unlike Samsung.

    Adult entertainment? lol thats so inappropriate to have at event like this.
