Question of the Day: What Impressed You From CES 2013?


Our time at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas has come to an end. That’s both a happy and sad statement, mostly happy though, as the show failed to impress as it has in the past. There simply weren’t the number of innovative product announcements that we had seen at previous shows, something that may be the trend going forward for the world’s biggest electronics show.

But even with only a few headline grabbing products, I think it’s safe to say that we all had our favorites. The gamers in the building were blown away by NVIDIA’s Project Shield (our hands-on) and their Grid Gaming System. I found myself drooling over Sony’s new phones (Xperia Z and ZL), something I wasn’t expecting to admit after spending a week in the desert.

To see more of our thoughts on the week, be sure to tune into the replay of last night’s Droid Life Show.

What about you? Was there a certain product that stood out the most? And we’re not necessarily looking for Android-related stuff, but new and exciting tech products in general. Drop into the comments and let us know.

  • CES and breakthrough product evolution is cyclical. This was a down year. I am amazed that the industry keeps trying to cram 3D down the consumer’s throat. Most interesting thing? The Stern Avengers Pin home pinball machine! Sweet analog gaming!

    Project Shield and all that it introduces (Tegra 4, PC gaming made mobile, etc.)

    The Sony ZL. It’s funny how a week ago, almost unanimously, we all would have said that Sony would be towards the bottom of a list of the phones to even contemplate getting and then…. It’s like a woman you wouldn’t give a second look, then she puts on makeup and “Hey she’s lookin’ fine! Where has she been hidin’?”

  • What about the Dell box project that turns any TV into Android smart tv?!!

    Project Sheild

    My favorite is the Sony ZL. If it launches in the very near future, its specs are right on par with current top-tier phones. I’d definitely consider it if it hit VZW.

    Nothing excited me as much as that new LTE antenna that can support up to a dozen (IIRC) frequencies. Put that in a device with a pentaband radio and you have a global device that can play with 3G and 4G anywhere there’s signal to be pulled down.

    Maybe I’m getting old or something, but that’s what I liked the most.
