Day 2 of pre-CES saw a day of press conferences from all the big tech players. Standing out for me was certainly Samsung and its offering. CES sees the launch of Samsung’s first Ultra High Definition Television, the Bendable TV, an impressive Chef Collection for the kitchen and some hard-working, multi-tasking additions to its tablet range.
In the world of television for 2014 Samsung is embracing the curve for what is tipped to be a truly cinematic experience, The firm explains that with a wider field of view the audience is given the illusion of a larger screen size and also the effect of 3D without the awkward glasses. The unveiling of Samsung’s forthcoming Bendable TV range caused much excitement here in Las Vegas. At the touch of a button the Ultra High Definition flat screen television shape-shifts to become curved – offering the viewer multiple viewing perspectives.
Samsung’s Chef collection was also a highlight. The firm teamed up with Michelin starred chefs to create a multi-zone fridge offering varying temperatures for optimum food preservation. Thanks to a metal cooling plate and triple cooling system, meat and fish can be stored at a separate temperature to fruit and vegetables.
CES also sees the launch of the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO series. Key features include a large 12.2″ screen size with multi-window capability, 10 hour battery life, a full size virtual keyboard, 3GB of RAM and the S Pen. Samsung has also incorporated a remote PC feature to the series making this a seriously hard-working and exciting tablet series launch.
