CES 2013: Official Day 1

Sony has unveiled some new products today at their press conference including the Sony Xperia Z. The new Sony Xperia Z combines current superphone staples like a 5-inch, 1080p screen and quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with high-end imagining and the ability to survive underwater without missing a beat.

Huawei has just announced the Ascend Mate with a Massive Screen at 6.1 inches, the Mate (coming to China in February and other markets thereafter) makes the iPhone 5 look like a Tic-Tac. It also has a much bigger 720p screen than the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II, although Huawei says it has a more compact screen-to-chassis ratio than competing phones.

Lexus and its parent company Toyota are jumping into the self-driving car race. The company announced at CES 2013 that it’s working on what it calls its Advanced Active Safety Research Vehicle, which will serve as a launch pad for future autonomous vehicles.

Software Company Canonical made waves recently with the announcement that Ubuntu, the popular open-source operating system, was making the leap to smartphones. But does the world need another mobile operating system? The folks at Canonical seem to think so. And after going hands-on with the latest build of Ubuntu Mobile during Pepcom at CES 2013.

Samsung’s new television sets for 2013 are not only beautiful, but allow for more connectivity and interaction with the devices than ever before. Samsung Smart TV provides more interaction with content and partners than any other TVs. The new Samsung flagship F8000 television is a sight to behold, with its LED screen and incredibly beautiful picture. The OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) TVs with built-in speaker systems look like a work of art. If Apple is going to make its own television, it has its work cut out.
