As you might imagine, Androids were huge at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Everyone was eager to spot the next big Android release. Companies rolled out the very latest in Smartphones, tablets and TVs that run the Android system were everywhere. That little green guy sure gets around. Yesterday’s gizmos just are going to seem very outdated very soon.
Among the many cool gadgets that showed up, the ones that stood out, these are at the head of the pack.
The Motorola Xoom
Undeniably best in show, the award winning Motorola Xoom tablet took the spotlight. Android Honeycomb, the very latest in Android platforms, is the brains behind this high powered tablet. It’s got a huge 10” screen and HD capabilities. It supports Wi-Fi and will soon be upgradable from its 3G system to 4G through Verizon. It’s never been easier to run Google from a tablet. The Xoom offers features never seen before on Google like a customizable 3D home page, more and better widgets and the ability to synch your bookmarks.
The RCA Android TV
TV is now the new target for Android technology. Your old TV just won’t cut it anymore (even if you bought it last year!) once you see the features available through RCA’s new Android equipped models. This TV can run apps like Facebook and YouTube but it also supports picture editing software like Picasa.
The HSTI Wireless Media Stick
A small flash drive is among the top Android gadgets from CES. This small silver stick allows you to stream any media from your Android device to your TV, PC or any media-reading device. It plugs into any USB port and eliminates the need for cables or cards.
The Samsung Infuse
With its enormous 4.5 inch screen, the Samsung Android phone uses 4G technology to provide the fastest speed and the crispest picture quality. It’s being touted as the coolest and slimmest 4G Smartphone available.
Motorola Droid Bionic
Cool name aside, this Smartphone has one of the highest resolutions of any. It features the ability to record videos at 30FPS and is powered by Nvidia Tegra 2. It has both 3G and 4G capabilities.
Many newcomers hit the scene and some of the expected forerunners took top honors. One thing is for sure, however. The future of technology has Android written all over it.
