The biggest tech expo of the year drew to an end with some remarkably strange, weird, and in some cases entirely pointless gadgets, gizmos, and technologies.
It's rare to find an Android smartphone with a traditional hardware phone keypad, but Matthew has spent the last few weeks with one designed for the extreme work environment.
iPhones are the most expensive smartphones today and we often see broken screens. It makes sense to pay for some peace of mind and the mPact is a worthy option.

At the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer talks about why users should buy a Windows phone rather than an Android device: "You don’t need to be a computer scientist to use a Windows phone and you do to use and Android phone."
A pivotal moment in Apple's history, CEO Steve Jobs announces iTunes for Windows on October 16, 2003. Jobs stated at the time, "It's probably the best Windows app ever written." The release was also considered a good strategic move by Apple because, for the first time, Windows users could buy music from Apple's online store, giving them a feel for the Apple user experience.
Apple's senior vice president of marketing, Philip Schiller, announces the latest version of the company's smartphone, the iPhone 4S. The new phone features an A5 chip, dual-core graphics, a longer battery life, better camera, and both CDMA and GSM.
At Apple's headquarters, Apple's senior vice president of marketing, Philip Schiller, unveils new iPod Nano features, including a new multitouch icon screen, new sensors for runners, and the ability to wear the device as a watch. The Nano comes in 7 colors, in an 8GB version for $129 and a 16GB version for $149.
Every time a new tablet computer hits the market, experts speculate whether it could be the one to take down Apple's iPad. CNET's Kara Tsuboi explains why Amazon's Kindle Fire could be its stiffest competition yet.
At the Intel Developer Forum, Google announced it is teaming up with the chipmaker to optimize Android for Intel-powered mobile devices. Google Senior Vice President Andy Rubin made an appearance during the keynote address with Intel CEO Paul Otellini to announce that all future versions of Android will use the x86 chip architecture.
At the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, Intel CEO Paul Otellini discusses Intel’s notebook venture as the “most satisfying and complete computer experience” ever with a sleeker and lighter design and a long battery life at mainstream prices. The first Ultrabooks have already started shipping from select partners and more will be on the way by the holiday season this year.
Given its specification and performance, the Nexus 5 delivers great value for money — if you can live with its (few) drawbacks. The middling-quality camera and uninspiring chassis design don't worry us, but the lack of MicroSD card storage expansion and moderate battery life are more serious minus points.
The Haswell-based Surface Pro 2 delivers improved performance and battery life, and its dual-angle kickstand is also welcome. However, the Pro 2's unchanged chassis design feels bulkier and heavier than ever, and it becomes very expensive when fully accessorised.
Want to dock your smartphone? Does it live in a protective case and not work with standard OEM docks anymore? Check out this Kickstarter project.
The 2013 Nexus 7 is a sleeker, lighter and better-specified device than last year's model. There's still no Micro-SD card support, but good all-round performance and battery life, plus a competitive price, add up to superb value for money.
Fujitsu's new Lifebook E-Line offers an attractive design and solid build quality, with plenty of configuration options and (common) accessories. The optional modular Bay Projector is interesting, but you'll need to weigh its utility against the £280 price tag.
The Lumia 925 is a slimmer and lighter Windows Phone 8 handset than its 920 predecessor, with a neater and more ergonomic design. It lacks integrated wireless charging but supports LTE and NFC, and has an excellent 4.5in. AMOLED screen.
The 8-inch Galaxy Note 8 is reasonably comfortable to hold one-handed in portrait mode to make jottings with its pressure-sensitive pen, and is a delight to use. Still, you'll need to really want the added features that pen input brings to the device, because it's relatively expensive.
The EliteBook Folio 9470m is a well-made ultrabook with a particularly good keyboard and touchpad. We like the removable battery and optional battery slice, but would prefer a higher screen resolution across the range. Windows 8 fans will also note the absence of a touchscreen option.
HTC has pulled out all the stops with the One, which looks great, performs well and includes some clever features. The lack of storage expansion and the persistence of BlinkFeed are irritations, but overall the HTC One stands up well against rival flagship handsets.
The Z10 is a nicely designed handset with a superb touchscreen and good specifications that include LTE and NFC support. The new BlackBerry 10 OS offers a decent user experience once you get used to it, although we'd like to see a physical home button.
The LG-built Nexus 4 offers terrific value for money, if you don't mind its moderate battery life and lack of LTE support. Shame it's currently sold out at Google's Play store.
Microsoft's ARM-based tablet has plenty of good points, but there are enough downsides to make caution advisable. The hardware platform and the Windows RT ecosystem will undoubtedly improve, so we'd suggest giving version 1.0 a miss unless you're an avid early adopter.
The Nexus 10 sets the standard for other tablet manufacturers. If Google can persuade developers to fill in the gaps in the app market, then it will deserve to be wildly popular.
The VAIO T13 ultrabook is attractively priced, but Sony has made a number of compromises to achieve this.
The Tecra R950 is a hefty 15.6in. business-grade notebook with an up-to-date set of security and manageability features, integrated mobile broadband and a solid but understated design. It performs well enough for its market, but we'd prefer a higher screen resolution.
