Every year we get rather unique gadgets that end up running Android. Last year during CES 2011, one of those unique devices happen to be a headset with a built-in touchscreen that ran Android. This year we already have one new gadget to talk about which is the A3-Wifi from FAVI Entertainment.
Keeping on with this weeks trend of talking about Gameloft, at CES 2011 I was talking to the fine folks over at the Verizon booth and the topic of Gameloft came up. A fellow gamer over at the Verizon booth was talking to us and we happen to mention the issue many people have with Gameloft not putting their games up on the market.
At CES 2011 there were a ton of new Android goodies to play around with. One of the more impressive phones was the Motorola Bionic which is a part of a few new awesome Motorola devices slated for release soon. While we were going to do a traditional type of hands-on, our device happen to have Dungeon Defenders installed on it.
Something else that was pretty interesting over at the LG booth this year at CES 2011 was the unveiling of a glasses-free mobile screen LG had been developing. The display was showing off how it will look on devices slated to be coming out soon with these screens meaning we could see future Tegra 2 3D Android devices from LG.
One of the more awesome Android phones at CES 2011 was the Optimus 2X from LG who came out strong this year at the show. This is LG's first dual-core Android phone sporting a Tegra 2 chip inside and playing around with it, you can certainly see/feel the difference a Tager 2 makes in your phone.
CES has been crazy this year, especially regarding certain products and one of those happens to be tablets, more specifically, Android tablets. ViewSonic has a few offerings in this field: ViewSonic 4" Tablet, 7" Tablet, 10" dual-boot tablet, the GTablet and the 10S Tablet. We got to fondle the dual-core GTablet and get a run down of the 4" one.
This Acer prototype tablet just keeps popping up everywhere it seems at CES regardless of what booth we go to. Don't get me wrong, I love playing with it, especially when it concerns 3D games. Snooping around the Verizon booth we spotted it again and once taking a closer look at it, we spotted the Asphalt 6 icon.
Marvell had some interesting gear at CES and one was an Android tablet that can stream your movies or gaming, minus the wires, onto your HDTV. With almost zero lag, you are able to use the tablet as your game controller for racing games and similar genres via the accelerometer, however, it will do all games of course.
One of the games we mentioned in our previous article about the new upcoming nVidia Tegra Zone marketplace was Galaxy of Fire 2 by Fishlabs. This is a 3D sim space game that takes full advantage of the Tegra 2 chip to really boost the graphics and gameplay to console-like status. This is also the game with that nifty action photo feature.
NOX Audio invited us over to check out their working prototype of a headset they will be releasing in late 2011 called the Admiral Touch. This headset features a small 2.4" LCD screen running the Android OS to take advantage of gesture-based controls and will have built-in WiFi for streaming audio as well.
nVidia at CES is sporting some great products with a strong focus on Android gaming. One of their upcoming products is called Tegra Zone which will be a marketplace for Android devices to go to and users can purchase Tegra 2 optimized games to play on their Tegra 2 Android devices. This isn't just another market though!
