My Favorites of CES 2011
The Consumer Electronics Show has come and gone this past week. There were several things I have seen announced and am excited about. These are just a few of them that happen to be my favorites.
Motorola announced the "Atrix" a very hight end Google Android phone with the unique ability to attach to add-ons to make it into a desktop computer, laptop, or multimedia player for the TV. Engadget.com has the best video out there demonstrating its capabilities.
Another announcement from Motorola is their "Xoom" tablet running the next generation of Google Android 'Honeycomb.' This device will be available for Verizon's network and supposedly in a Wifi only version too. Androidcentral.com has a nice hands on article and video about the device.
There were plenty of PC announcements. One of the most unique ones was first shown at the Microsoft Keynote and is from Acer. They are creating a notebook computer that does not have a keyboard but instead has a second screen. Both are touch capable and once you press all your fingers on the bottom screen it turns into a keyboard. Engadget.com has a great writeup and video on this device as well.
One final thing that caught my attention (although it is way out of my price range) is the redesigned Microsoft Surface 2.0. This device is now a PC built into a four inch thick Samsung display covered in Gorilla Glass that can actually see what is touching it or placed down on it.

Those were my favorite things but do you have a favorite thing I didn't mention? If so please leave a comment.
