Consumers Electronic Show(better known as CES) is a great platform for manufacturers to show off their latest products and plans for the future. CES 2012 has also been a great success with lots of manufacturers introducing their latest great devices. As CES is now over, we have decided to review the Top 10 best products shown off at CES 2012.
The best thing about it is it’s sleek and slim design. It is slimmer than any other tablet available measuring just 0.3 inch thin and weighs only 1.2 lbs. It comes with gorilla glass display and a unique channel trim accompanied by a magnesium alloy back (no more creaky plastic like the old Toshiba Thrive series).
There is no news yet on the internal specs, but we hope it will have a quad-core processor. Before your mouth starts watering, note that the 16 GB version of the X10 will cost you a hefty $529, so you might start saving your money for this beauty.
