CES 2013: All our coverage
Well, even if you haven't been meticulously following our news feed, fear not as you've landed at the right spot. Here we've collected all our CES 2013 coverage in one place – news, announcements, hands-ons and videos, you name it. New posts are being added at a regular basis, so make sure you come back later and update yourself on all the latest from the show.
Let us begin with what's surely among the most exciting announcements made so far – that of the Sony Xperia Z. Sure, it would've been a lot more exciting if the smartphone had not been leaked a gazillion times on the web already, but that's just us nitpicking. A pretty similar model known as the Sony Xperia ZL was also unveiled by the Japanese company.
The Chinese manufacturer presented a couple of Android smartphones - the 5-inch Huawei Ascend D2 flagship and the humongous, 6.1-inch Huawei Ascend Mate. Make sure you check out our hands-ons to learn more about these two devices.
Although no new devices were unvelied by the Korean tech giant, several announcements were made. Among them is the upcoming availability of the Samsung ATIV Odyssey and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 with LTE for Verizon.
What Intel had to announce today were a couple of processors meant to power mobile devices. One of them is tailored for tablet use, while the other would fit nicely inside entry-level smartphones.
Yup, Alcatel announced new Android devices today! The most exciting in the bunch is the Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra, which is now the world's thinnest smartphone. We also have the new One Touch Scribe series by Alcatel, which features relatively affordable 5-inch phones.
The list would not be complete without NVIDIA, which took the veil off the Tegra 4 system-on-a-chip. In fact, two devices that are powered by the powerful piece of silicon are already known.
And last but not least we have an assortment of news and announcements that we couldn't fit in a category of their own. The most significant ones are on top of the list. Check them out below!

Is any smartphone better than my galaxy note 2? 1080 playback isn't that important to me. I'm so happy with it that I like it better than my wife's Boobs! Thanks phoneareana for being there for us as usual. My note 2 has met every expectation and more and I'm a heavy business user. I can't imagine what's next. I could handle another inch of screen and more battery life is always a plus but that's all I could wish for.

Just wait til android Key lime pie is released and your waiting for an update then Samsung won't be that great. I bought the OG Note in Feb the day it was released in the US. ICS was out since Dec but the Note shipped with GB was told it would be updated to ICS by march at the latest, well I got the ICS update in July. In June JB was released was told the Note would get the update to JB by the end of Dec now it looks more like March if Samsung updates it at all. The thing with Samsung is they make a good phone with great hardware but software is ok but updates you get one and then there is no more support the exception is the S2 the phone that made Samsung a true player in smart phones but after JB support will end for that device as well.
