Windows 10 Tablets, Smartphones Make an Impression at CES

By Pedro Hernandez  |  Posted 2016-01-10

Taking a cue or two from Apple's buzz-generating media events, Microsoft has been getting better at hosting its own hardware announcements, as attendees of this year's splashy Surface Book reveal can attest. Of course, the Redmond, Wash., software giant's Windows operating system runs on countless offerings from its vast OEM partner ecosystem. For those vendors, the Consumer Technology Association's mammoth CES tradeshow, held after the new year in Las Vegas, is a showcase for their new Windows-powered gear. This year, mirroring Microsoft's post-PC ambitions for its new Windows 10 operating system, device makers sprinkled the show floor with an ever-expanding array of thin-and-light tablets and even some smartphones that rival the company's own high-end Lumia line in terms of fit and finish. Lenovo unwrapped its new modular ThinkPad X1 Tablet, which buyers can customize to their needs. Samsung showed off its own challenger to Microsoft's successful Surface Pro tablet, the new Galaxy TabPro S with a 12-inch AMOLED display. Take a look at these devices, and more, in this slide show of the notable Windows 10 devices making their debut at this year's CES.
