Visualized: CES 2014's smartphones and tablets in numbers
All CES 2014 announcements are behind us now, as the trade fair closed its gates last week. We’re pretty sure that most of you didn’t manage to check out every single new product revealed there. But a good starting point for that would be our CES coverage page. Anyway, right now we don’t necessarily want you to see everything that’s been showcased in Vegas this year. Instead, we compiled several graphs showing details about the smartphones and tablets announced at the show.

Conspiracy theorists who believe that China will someday take over the world now have a new reason of concern, because... nah, we’re kidding! Still, it’s true that Chinese companies had the highest number of new smartphones and tablets announced at CES 2014 (thanks to ZTE, Lenovo, Huawei and others). Overall, Asia-based manufacturers were on a roll in Vegas - but that’s hardly a surprise.

Country of origin aside, can you guess which of the newly-announced smartphones has the highest expected retail price? What about the most expensive tablet showcased at CES? You’ll see it all in the slides below.

We included only devices announced by companies with an international presence (or at least a future international presence that’s been confirmed). Also, tablets that aren't truly portable (like Panasonic's huge 20-inch 4K Windows slate) were left out.

GDP per capita is not a reallty good tool to determin standard of living, chinese GDP per capita this year is 5k to 10k dollars, but they produce everything, so for the same phone you pay 500 dollars they pay 250 if not less, they pay 20 cents for cofee, they pay 2 dollars for a restaurant dinnerm. Chinese poeple in the coutryside dont earn a lot of dolars so they do not add up much to the GDP, because they have everything at their villiges and have natural food.
I live in poland, Our GDP per capita is 35-50k dollars per year, but most poeple (50%) earn the minimum wage or a little bit more of about 400-500 us dollars monthly, in china entry level job pay is often 2000 yuan (about 340 us dollars) but poeple often earn 500 hundred or more. But their goods are often 2 to 5 times cheaper than in the west. This year china is going to be the number one market for cars and electronic devices. 30 years ago china was 20 times poorer than Poland even though polish economy in the eighties was still centrally planned. today china builds 10k roads per year.
In the US in late nineteenth century workers were used pretty badly, american worker was very poor, evetime time they went on the streets police shot them, but ther poor used american worker was the first one in the world to drive cars (it would be inimaginable in europe in the 1920s that the factory worker would dirve a car.
