On January eighth the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show kicked off and ran until January eleventh, showcasing some of the best technology to be released in the near future and the Leonid has the scoop.
The first amazing thing that caught our eyes were the amazing tablets. First there was Panasonic’s 4k Windows 8 tablet. It’s a 20 inch tablet making this one of the biggest tablets ever. The tablet has a high definition screen with 230 pixels per inch this tablet makes bigger better. The second was the Vizio Windows 8 tablet. This tablet is running a full version of Windows 8, not an RT version. The tablet has no fans because it’s running AMDs 260 processor which should should keep the system cool. The tablet can run the video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 at medium settings, proving this system is very powerful.
As 2013 begins to roll in we are beginning to see and hear more and more about the console race that’s said to begin this year. One of the new consoles is the Piston by Xi3. This console is super small compared to current consoles--it can be held in one hand! The piston functions as a computer able to run Linux or Windows. The console is also easily upgraded with a card system that can be easily switched out.
The next thing that caught our attention was Youms new flexible OLED. This screen stole the show for us. This screen a plastic OLED screen that is paper thin and bendable because OLD screens create their own light, no back light is needed. This makes it possible for these screens to be so thin. The idea of this is mind blowing and could be a massive game changer for cell phones and tablets, and it is a project we should all keep our eyes on.
With all these cool pieces of technology we can already see that 2013 is gonna be a good year for the technology industry. Keep reading the Leonid as we will be covering all these tech items and more as they are released.
