The iPad has opened the floodgates for wi fi enabled tablets, and at CES in Las Vegas, revolutionary designs competed for eyeballs.

There were hybrid tablets like Samsungs’s Sliding PC 7 Series, which can convert to a notebook with keyboard with a simple slide. Then there is the likes of the Dell Inspiron Duo that is a hybrid tablet notebook that allows you to spin the 10-inch screen on its axis to convert from one identity to the other.

One clear attention winner was the Asus Eee Slate EP121, a 12.1 inch tablet that runs Windows 7 Premium and features a Corei5 processor. The EP 121 is compatible with all your Windows devices and will spearhead the Windows push into the tablet mark, with many commentators applauding the processing speed of the device. The EP121 also has a 2 megapixed front facing camera with flash.

Then there were cameras. Samsung clearly believes the purpose-built camera is as desirable as ever and the spearhead of the range is the NX series. Two big cornerstones of the NX cameras are the interchangeable lenses, and the iFunction button, which allows you to change key settings of the camera without having to take your eyes of the subject.

We also played with the SH100, described as their leading wirelessly connected camera. In 2 view camera’s, Samsung will release the ST700 with a 7.6 centimetre touch screen back and 4.5 cm front screen. The ST700 will also capture 720 HD resolution.
