The best of CES 2012

Smartphones, tablets, unique gadgets and Ultrabooks make a splash at Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas

Article comments

The giant Consumer Electronics Show 2012 is on display this week in Las Vegas, with its annual outpouring of electronic wonders. Here’s our take on the best stuff this year.


Corning Gorilla Glass 2

Folks are going ape-stuff over Corning's announcement of Gorilla Glass 2, for smartphone and tablet touch screens, among other uses. The new version means displays can be 20% thinner but just as strong as the original. That almost certainly will not lead to "thinner smartphones" but it will mean greater visibility and "less resistance for touch-sensing components," according to a Corning executive. Corning is shipping samples now with mass production by mid-2012. Corning's original product became famous almost overnight when Apple touted its capabilities in the first iPhone.
