Best of CES: Polaroid's Android Camera, Google TV and Intel Phones
There was a lot of news coming out of CES yesterday but not all of it was so interesting. A 3D TV here, a Polaroid smart camera there; it's hard to get too excited about technology that probably won't be disrupting any well-established markets anytime soon. That said, here are a few of the stories we did find interesting from the first official day at CES:
- Sony unveiled a new watch that connects to your phone bia bluetooth and displays text messages, emails, calendar notifications as well as NFC tags that can be used to activate pre-configured profiles for your device.
- Google TV unveiled a model featuring a 65-inch display manufactured by Vizio, with a custom build of Honeycomb and Vizio's VIA Plus UI.
- Intel has announced a multi-year mobile partnership with Motorola. Intel-powered Motorola smartphones will be released as soon as this summer.
- Polaroid has announced an Android-powered smart camera. The 16-megpaixel shooter features a 3x optical lens and the photos can be instantly uploaded via WiFi and work with Android's photo apps.
- Sprint has announced the carrier will be receiving a Galaxy Nexus LTE sometime in the first half of 2012
