The Ultimate CES '11 List – All About Android Launches
While you end up spending a lot of time looking for what all Android devices have been launched at the CES ’11, we have compiled a list of all of them. Take a look!
I know you were drooling over when Honeycomb was announced. Now here’s the first tablet to come with it – the Motorola Xoom. Sporting 1 GHz Dual-core (Tegra 2), a 10.1” display, HD video recording, full HD playback, 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, and 32 gigs storage, you are bound to ditch iPad, aren’t you?
No. It hasn’t got anything to do with Christina Aguilera. It’s Motorola’s smartphone that aims at leveraging internet experience with Verizon’s high speed 4G LTE network. Sporting a Dual-core 1 GHz processor, a qHD res display of 4.3” estate, an 8 MP snapper with HD video recording, what else would you want?
This is innovation at it’s best. Yeah. And I pick it up as the best smartphone showcased at the CES. Powered by 1 Gigs Dual-core Tegra 2 processor, a 4” Gorilla glas touchscreen, a 5 MP snapper and with HD recording on board, there’s less you can crib about. Now, what if I say you could use it as a lappy? You can! Dock it in a Laptop dock and you’re good to go! Awesome!
4. CLIQ 2
Loved the original Cliq? You didn’t? Well, you’ll like this. The successor of Cliq comes with a 1 GHz processor, a 5 MP snapper, Wi-Fi hotspot and a comfy 3.7” FWVGA display.
Sorta revolution for LG this CES is (or was). Perhaps the success of Optimus One should have pumped the decision makers at LG to launch a sleuth of ‘just there’ devices. The first one’s Revolution. Sporting a 4.3” S-LCD display, an 8 MP snapper that can do HD video, and being Froyo powered (there will be Gingerbread obviously) means that it’s a good one.
6. OPTIMUS BLACK
So we finally have an Android that beats iPhone 4 in it’s own backyard, the screen. Coming with LG’s innovative NOVA tech, Optimus Black comes with a 2 MP FCC for facetime..err..video calling, Wi-FI Direct, a 4” NOVA touchscreen, and a 1500 mAh battery, you have a blockbuster here. Mark my words.
Before you start getting naughty, it’s LG’s own tablet that aims to rival the Xoom, and other tabs out there. The design’s minimalist, but wisely done so. Being the second tablet to run Honeycomb, the G-Slate features a FCC, a 1 GHz Dual-core processor (probably). The specs haven’t been released just as yet, sadly
8. OPTIMUS 2X
The world’s first phone to come with a Dual-core processor, the Optimus 2X sports a 4” WVGA screen, a 1.3 MP FCC, Android 2.2, an 8 MP snapper which does HD and full HD playback, welcome the world’s first super-phone, truly.
A successor to the highly successful Incredible, the Thunderbolt is truly justifying it’s name what with a massive 4.3” S-LCD display, a 1 Gig processor, an 8 MP snapper doing HD, a 1.3 MP FCC, all along with Dolby and SRS surround sound. I can’t stop drooling over it. Not yet.
10. EVO SHIFT 4G
Obviously the successor of Evo 4G, the Evo Shift 4G comes with a 3.6” touchscreen with slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 5 MP snapper doing HD video, an 800 MHz processor. Nothing much to write home about sadly.
11. INSPIRE 4G
Here’s another monster from HTC. The Inspire 4G is here folks. Featuring a 4.3” WVGA touchscreen, a 1 GHz processor, an 8 MP snapper doing HD, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, I think we have a good smartphone.
12. INFUSE 4G
There were LED displays, then came AMOLED and then the Super AMOLEDs. Here’s Samsung’s Infuse 4G, a 4.5 incher S-AMOLED+, a successor to i897 Captivate. Main features include a 1.2 GHz Hummmingbird processor, an 8 MP snapper, a 1.3 MP FCC and Android 2.2, with Gingerbread in the pipeline.
13. 4G LTE SMARTPHONE
This is for Verizon specifically. And this is the world’s first LTE ready phone. The screen is a 4.3” S-AMOLED+ affair. There’s Android 2.2 running on it, with an 8 MP snapper also doing HD, a 1.3 MP FCC, a 1 Gig processor, and a mini HDMI port.
14. beTOUCH E140
Okay. Cut out all your 4”, Dual-core talks here. This is a budget smartphone, featuring a 2.8” touchscreen, a 3.2 MP snapper, 3G+ (3.5G?). There’s no word yet on the processor part though.
15. ICONIA TAB A500 ng>
It’s logical enough to say that designing a tablet for Acer is easier than doing a smartphone. So here you have it. Acer has shown off the ICONIA Tab A500 (seriously, I hate the naming) that features a Dual-core Tegra 2 processor, has a 10.1” touchscreen, and will come with Honeycomb. Pretty neat.
16. XPERIA ARC
Sony Ericsson is a master when it comes to design. Standing up to it’s name, the Xperia Arc aims to take the Xperia legacy to an altogether new level. There’s some good tech to boast about too, this time! Coming with a 4.2” Reality display (i.e., the BRAVIA Mobile Engine), an 8.1 MP snapper that does HD (Exmor R sensor), runs Gingerbread out of the box ( !!! ) and has a 1 GHz processor. I’m impressed.
17. STREAK 7
Probably the successor to the original Streak, the Streak 7 comes with Android 2.2 (d’oh!), has a 7” display up from the 5” of Streak, a Dual-core Tegra 2 1 GHz processor, a 5 MP snapper with 1.3 MP FCC, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR. Having Froyo at a time when all the other tabs announced sport Honeycomb is a disappointment, but there’s this OTA upgrade facility available.
