CES treats for 2014
This year’s CES gave us a lot of excitement for the upcoming gadgets from smartphones to wearables to smarter cars. But before we move on, let’s take one more look at what we’re hoping to get.
Samsung Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro
Sammy let everyone know that they aren’t slowing in their aggressive barrage of Galaxy devices. Though we didn’t get to hear much about the Galaxy S5, the Note and Tab Pro devices took the spotlight, sporting either an Exynos 5 Octa (1.9 GHz and a 1.3GHz Quadcore processors) or a Snapdragon 800 processor. They both will come out with an 8- and a 12-inch sizes. The 12-inch version has a 3GB RAM and can run up to four apps at once, while the smaller 10- and 8-inch versions have 2GB and can run two simultaneous apps. But all versions feature a 2,560×1600-screen resolution, 2- and 8MP front and rear cameras. It comes either with a 32GB or 64GB internal storage configuration, with expandable memory, IR blaster, and a micro-USB port for charging.
Samsung and LG unveiled their 105-110 curved ultra-HD TVs. They are fantastic and mouth-watering to watch them with. Under the hood, these two major rivals are holding some serious ammunition in their devices in terms of innovative features, like Instant On, and the sharpest possible quality images.
LG LifeBand Touch
We’ve seen a lot of wearables, and many of them look promising, but what caught our attention the most was LG’s LifeBand Touch. It’s basically an activity tracker, which measures how many calories you’ve burned each day, count your steps, and so on. But what made this stand out from the rest is that this band doubles up with smartwatch features, by checking time, messages, calls, and other notifications. It style is pretty sci-fi too, and we all love that future fashion.
We’re well aware that Sony had made plans for cloud services. And with the recent announcement, we can say in confidence that they’re in full throttle. PS Now will feature streaming games from PS3 to PS4, from PS3 to another PS3, and best yet, it will eventually have PS3 to a Sony Bravia TV and be able to play games there, console free, and that’s pretty awesome.
Nvidia Tegra K1
So soon we get another Tegra chip – but this is something different. It has Direct X11 support and Unreal Engine 4, and we can expect some serious graphical changes, and is believe to be more powerful than the PS3 and Xbox 360. Mobile gaming wouldn’t be the same again.
