Winners and losers of CES 2012

Winners and losers of CES 2012


Now that our jetlag is subsiding, it’s time to take a look back at the utter madness that was, and always is, the Consumer Electronics Show.

CES 2012 didn’t have a huge amount of absolute stand out kit, but for a time of financial uncertainty, there sure were a lot of launches and the industry certainly hasn’t been shy in terms of coming forward with expensive designs.

This was the biggest CES ever, with 1.861 million square feet of exhibit space, beating the previous record from 2008. 153,000 attendees dragged themselves to Las Vegas to traipse the miles around the show and Sin City’s infamous megaresort hotels.

So let’s look at some of the key themes and check out who did well and who did rather less well.
