  • CES 2012 showed off a dazzling display of the latest tech toys designed to add fun for the users and stuff the pockets of the manufacturers. The big winner appears to be the ultrabook with around 50 models introduced. But products like smartphones, laptops, tablets and TVs are impressing the crowds. Here, we'll show off some of the more innovative products but for the full coverage see CNET's CES special report and ZDNet's CES special report. Updated Thursday.

    From the ultrabooks on display at CES, ZDNet's James Kendrick liked the Samsung Series 9 model the best. See also: Samsung raises design bar with Series 9 laptop. It is 0.4 inches thick and weighs just 2.6 pounds.

    But you have to pay for it - the price tag says $1,499 which is quite steep compared to the other ultrabooks shown.

  • The hardware in the Transformer Prime is already top-notch, with a quad-core Tegra 3 powering things. The new version, likely called the Transformer 700 series, keeps everything in place but upgrades the display to an insane 1920×1200 resolution. This is the best display on any tablet, bar none.

    The refreshed hardware shown this week in the Transformer Prime makes it the best of CES 2012 in my book, says ZDNet's James Kendrick..

  • ZDNet's Matthew Miller says the new Nokia Lumia 900 (above) and HTC Titan II are solid Windows phones, but are they really the best that we can get on Windows Phone at this time?

    But ZDNet's James Kendrick says this phone was the best at CES.

    Would anyone at CES find out if this is a studio monitor headphone? 'cause I have a Sennheiser HD280 headphone. I think it's important when it comes to making music.

    For anyone curious about what OS I am using (nothing to do with headphones), I'm using KXStudio in top of (x/k)ubuntu distro.

    A 55" OLED? I'd take that over my 50" 50PK950 as it's got a lot of image retention problems as a computer monitor, but I got what I pay for since I couldn't afford a 50" LED LCD TV during early 2011. Well, it'll take a couple of years for prices of OLED TVs to come down to $1200 for a 55".
