They didn't "close the poll," the battery on their Macbook died. CES was crap, I thought they would at least announce the new iPhone 5D with DNA iD security testing. Oh well, there's always next year.

Aren't Z1S and Compact same device? Well, vote for Compact and Tab 8.4.

No,Z1s is supposed to be an improved Z1 (2013),and Z1 compact is a smaller version of the z1,with 4.3 inch 720p display (but with the same components,SD800,20.7 mpx camera...)

Z1S, as far as I can tell, is the exact same phone as the Z1, just for T-Mobile. It lets them claim it's a "U.S. exclusive". :(

Too big. I'd rather wear my moto MB502 on my arm. It connects to my router by Wi-Fi. Now, using it without SIM card for Viber. It can connect to my (main) phone (also by Wi-Fi) if I want it to.

dissapointed that the Asus PadFone X is still a big 5" screen and has a plastic back... I would rather get the New Infinity... though plastic has its advantages... And no LED flash for Padfone Mini!... really Asus? They should make a Small Infinity, like the Z1Compact with a full screen tablet.... Anyway my votes go for Z1Compact

This. Glad I wasn't the only one wondering about why asus pairs a huge 5' phone with a 10' tablet, and them a tiny, underpowered phone with a tiny tablet

Don't get me wrong, I still love the idea of finally being release in America, and the specs are top notch... But I am still waiting for an in between size, infinity-like build and 4.5 + 10" screens. And I'm still not sure if SlimPort is better than MHL. Camera for the X btw will be 13. Based on my calculation that 5mp was reported from dock mode.

Z1 compact is my overall fav of the entire show. It's taken them a few years but I reckon Sony's on the money with this one. Being a designer I also love Lenovo's Miix tablets with Wacom digitisers. They have quite a few models under the Miix 2 label though.

Why are the Samsung tablets so popular?

Sony Z1 Compact. Asus Transformer Pad Duet. Intel Edison SD-card-sized computer. I want wearable to connect by Wi-Fi, but most of them connect by BT only. Maybe Intel Edison will offer Wi-Fi connect. C'mon Intel, still not too late. FYI: I don't own any wearable and I like Sony SmartWatch2.

Where is Intel's charging bowl? I like that one.
