Droid 4

The Motorola Droid 4 builds on the company's existing Android-powered QWERTY slider, but adds more defined keys, which were edge-lit.

Droid Razr Maxx

We also were really impressed with Motorola's Droid Razr Maxx, which packs an insanely long-lasting 3,300 mAh battery in a smartphone that's only 8.99 millimeters thick.

Metro on S4

Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs got applause from his demo of Microsoft's Windows 8 "Metro" platform running on this prototype tablet powered by the chipmaker's Snapdragon S4 processor. With the S4, Qualcomm aims to provide a more home theater-like user experience, including 3D graphics processing and Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound baked in.

Snapdragon S4 on Android, too

Here's that Qualcomm developer tablet again, which we spied at the Verizon Wireless booth. This one ran Google's Android Honeycomb operating system, powered by the Snapdragon 4 dual-core processor. This machine was, of course, fueled by Verizon's 4G LTE network.

Huawei Ascend Handsets

This Ascend PS 1 phone from Huawei was a shockingly thin, 6.68 millimeter handset destined to hit the United States this spring running Ice Cream Sandwich. They look like nice Samsung challengers.

Toshiba Thrive Prototypes

Toshiba rebounded from its rubberized Thrive tablets, with their clunky look and feel, to reveal a number of interesting prototypes, ranging from 5.1 to 13.3 inches at CES. Our favorite was this 7.7-inch beauty, which offered a gorgeous AMOLED screen to rival Samsung's smartphone displays.

Samsung Smart Tvs

We were shocked by how much Samsung's Your Video app looked like the Google TV Honeycomb refresh from the fall. This would appear unseemly if it weren't for the fact that Google and Samsung are such close-knit partners today over Android. Your Video recommends video titles based on users viewing history and ratings. Google is reportedly working on beefing up its recommendation capabilities.

Last but not least, it's hard to dismiss Grover showing off this augmented reality application for Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered tablet computers.
