    Dell Venue 8 7000 Shows Its Tablet Chops

    A new series of tablets from Dell captivated CES attendees. Called the Venue 8 7000 Series, the line includes a wide range of slates costing between $400 and $470. Each tablet comes with an 8.4-inch OLED display and a rather interesting design that sets apart the screen and speakers, which Dell claims provides outstanding audio. The device is just 6mm thin, runs on Android and has an aluminum body. All in all, it's a great-looking device.

    Amplicity Brings the GPU With You

    Immediately after being announced at CES, Amplicity attracted the attention of attendees. The device, designed by a company called The Hive, is essentially a full PC packed with Abobe's suite of applications that is the size of a smartphone. Once Amplicity is connected to a monitor, keyboard and mouse, users are off and running wherever they are. It's like carrying a midlevel computer in your pocket. The Hive will offer the base model for a $99 subscription and a six-month term. Those who want the higher-end device can buy it outright for $399.

    What a Curve in the LG G Flex 2

    The LG G Flex 2 took the prize as the top smartphone on display at CES this year. The device comes with a 5.5-inch screen and Android 5.0 (Lollipop), neither of which makes it all that different from other flagship competitors. What does set it apart from its competitors, however, is its curved design that puts the microphone closer to the user's mouth to enhance sound quality. It's a cool-looking product that has received high praise so far.

Best of all, its battery lasts an impossibly long 8 months on a single charge, so it won't need to be plugged in.

    Mercedes Shows What the Future Looks Like

In addition to its futuristic body style, the car is hydrogen-powered, leading some to wonder if our reliance on gas could be diminishing as time goes on. The F 015 is compelling, if nothing else.

After a few fun-filled days, the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the technology industry's biggest and arguably most important event of the year, came to a close late last week. With so many new and innovative products on display, those who follow the industry and tried to keep up with those countless products that cropped up at the confab are wondering what stood out above all others. While determining which products are truly best is open to interpretation, there were some devices that stood out at the show. While not all those products were groundbreaking, they were extremely appealing in their own way and show that the technology industry really is still a place where innovation reigns supreme. In the following slides, eWEEK provides a brief recap of this year's CES and highlights some of the products that made a big impact at the annual event. Whether the products will be retail successes remains to be seen, but at least for now, they have earned their time in the spotlight.
