Dell's new tablet
If you thought the Dell Streak was special you haven't seen the Dell Streak 7. It's Dell's first laptop to be 4G capable. Nope, that's not a typo - blisteringly fast 4G (not 3G) featuring wireless broadband speeds. It'll be coming out in a few weeks time. A UK date has yet to be announced, so keep an eye out for it in the future.

Make 3D movies on the cheap with the Sony Bloggie 3D
Not only can you now watch 3D movies in your home, you can make them using camcorders such as the Sony Bloggie 3D. The Sony Bloggie 3D is a handheld camera that lets you shoot 3D movies in high definition (HD) video. Not ready for 3D? It also lets you shoot in 2D and take 5-megapixel photos.

BlackBerry Playbook continues to live up to the hype
The Apple iPad might be the most popular tablet around, but with the BlackBerry PlayBook, the new BlackBerry tablet there is set to be even more choice for tablet computer fans. CES 2011 attendees got to see the PlayBook in action today where it thoroughly impressed when playing games, browsing the web and a great deal more.

Samsung raises the bar for TV beauty
There have been tonnes of televisions at CES 2011 but the Samsung D7900 LED TV is one of the best looking to hit the show floor. Its bezel, or frame around the sides almost disappears around the edges to deliver the illusion of a panel of pure TV goodness. Did we mention it is both 3D and Internet TV enabled, letting you view web pages and surf the web.

Samsung Galaxy Player is out of this world
Looking for a top notch MP3 and mobile movie player? It just might be worth waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Player. It comes with a 3.2-megapixel camera and comes in 8GB or 16GB. It looks gorgeous too.
