The International Consumer Electronics Show for 2012 (CES 2012) is now history. And it truly proved to be “historic” in the process. Get this:Record attendance…more than 153,000 industry insiders (NOT open to the public!)Record show floor space…1.86 million square feet (that’s 37 football fields!)Record number of exhibitors…more than 3,100
You can see the official CES recap video here which is a brief teaser.
But I thought I'd give you a quick run-down on some of the products that were considered "best of CES" by CNET. If you've ever surfed for reviews on technology then you know you've already been to their site. So while LOTS of media will walk away with their own take on the show, CNET's list is gonna provide a pretty good take on what earned buzz.
At the top of the list is their "Best of Show"...LG's 55-inch OLED TV. Just gorgeous! First, it is the slimmest and lightest anywhere. It weighs only about 16.5 lbs and measures (get this) only 4mm thick...that's just 0.16 inches! Its little more than a sheet of plate glass.
And picture? Engadget called it "crazy sharp" and Gizmodo said this: "OLED is no joke. Acronyms are often hype, but damn does this set look killer. The wafer-thin screen is terrifically bright, small details pop, and colors are gorgeous, making the rest of the panels on display already look like old tech."The first model ships out Q3 of 2012 so don't go hunting stores looking for it just yet.
