The Consumer Electronics Show 2012 has just ended in Las Vegas. Every CES brings us lots of new gadgets and technologies. This year also, we witnessed the arrival of lots hot tech products including fresh smartphones, tablets, Ultrabooks and others. Here we are talking about five best smartphones, which were unveiled at CES 2012.

Nokia Lumia 900
Nokia Lumia 900, literally the U.S. version of Nokia’s first smartphone with Windows Phone, found light at CES 2012. The Finnish mobile maker is to sell the new version of Lumia through AT&T in the country. There are many notable changes in the form and features of Lumia 900 from its European version, the Lumia 800. Of course, the 900 is a higher end version with a 4.3-inch AMOLED display, a 1.4GHz Scorpion CPU, 8-megapixel Carl Zeiss lens camera, front facing camera and many others.

Nokia looks for a significant milestone in the growth of Nokia Lumia platform with the launch of Lumia 900 on AT&T. Chris Weber, president of Nokia Americas says “the introduction of the Nokia Lumia 900 with AT&T is another significant milestone in the ongoing rollout of Nokia’s global smartphone strategy.” The phone is specially designed with U.S. costumers in mind, he adds. Of course, different from Lumia 800, the 900 is a 4G LTE device.

Intel Medfield phones (Lenovo and Motorola)
The CES 2012 officially marked the entry of Intel’s much-touted foray into the mobile chip business. Intel CEO Paul Otellini announced its Medfield Atom Z2460 chip in the trade show. He demoed Lenovo K800, the world’s first smartphone to run on Intel’s mobile chips. Motorola will also roll out Medfield-based smartphones and tablets late this year.

Intel has jumped into the mobile chip business in the aftermath of the U.K-based ARM Holding’s massive growth in mobile industry. The giant chipmaker looks to make a big presence in the mobile chip business by the end of this year. The company announced its Medfield chips last year and said there would be a range of products this year.

There are no more smartphones with cameras above 8-megapixel sensor. It is then Panasonic has announced its camera centric smartphones, which can capture 1080p Full HD video recording.
