Samsung had a pretty impressive year here in 2012, and they are showing no signs of slowing down for the next year. As you all know, one of the biggest tech events of the year is quickly approaching. CES 2013 in Las Vegas kicks off early January and Samsung is already teasing us with a quick video. It sure doesn't reveal much, but lets take a look.
ASUS wants a slice of that pie for itself. iAfrica reports that ASUS is planning to launch a new 7-inch tablet dubbed the ME-172 early next year with a price tag that can challenge that of the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD.

WIMM One, I'm Watch, Sony Ericsson's new Xperia SmartWatch and the MOTOACTV, you'd think there was some kind of trend going on. Add one more to the pile with niche Chinese OEM Phaeton Nice Electronics and their unnamed Android watch, which ARMDevices got a look at on the CES floor. But wait a minute - this is more than your typical Bluetooth-pairing, agenda-updating fancy pedometer: this device runs a full and mostly unmodified Android 2.2 OS with a cellular connection.
All About Samsung did: a previously unseen device shown off in a WiFi camera promotion. Is this the much-rumored Galaxy S III, or just a fanciful mock-up made for the CES presentation? You be the judge. Or rather, I will, since I'm writing this here article.

CES 2012, Intel showed off the new Lenovo Racer-A smartphone making use of Intel's Midfield chip. Until now, we haven't seen Intel's processor in a production smartphone. It is currently clocked at 1.6GHz running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). This particular phone is running over AT&T bands - absent of 4G LTE.
