Bluestacks is a pretty cool company, why, because they’ve developed PC software to run your favorite Android apps on the PC.

Mind you our apps editor Elijah Ketchum and our on-site technician Steve were in line two hours before the press conference.

Philips has been making a name for themselves in the iPod/iPhone dock world for the past few years. They manufacture music and audio docks for iPods at an affordable price, that sound great. Last year, leading up to CES 2011 we were hoping we would see some Android specific docks, and Philips came through over
Automakers are starting to implement more and more digital infotainment systems and digital instrument clusters.

At CES 2012 Intel showed off their reference design featuring their Atom processor for smartphones and Android devices.

Intel didn’t jump into Android when everyone else did. They took three years to design what they are hoping is the perfect processor to handle all the rigorous processes in an Android device. They also seemed to listen to the Android community, other manufacturers and the consumer when designing their Atom processor for Android devices.
A little while back, during the Intel Developer’s Conference, Google’s Andy Rubin announced that Intel was developing Atom processors specifically for Android devices. Intel’s entry into the processor business for Android phones pits them against the likes of Qualcomm, Nvidia, Samsung and Texas Instruments.

We weren’t sure what to call this device. Should we call it the Sony Ericsson Xperia S, The Sony Xperia S or the Sony Mobile Communications Xperia S, whatever we call it, it’s 12 mega pixels of Android awesomeness. With an enormous 12 mega pixel camera you’re going to need an equally as good display.
Panasonic, the creators of the ultra rugged “tough” line of laptop computers, has added an Android Honeycomb tablet to the mix. We first learned about the Panasonic ToughPad A1 and B1 back in November. They were showing off the A1 at CES and we got the opportunity to check it out. Underneath it’s tough exterior
