CES 2012 Recap: Gadgets Galore!

Stocks in this article: NOK AAPL GOOG ARMH SNE T

Samsung's Galaxy Note

Samsung's Galaxy Note combines the portability of a smartphone with a tablet's large display to create a category all of its own. The 5.3-inch device, which runs on Google's (GOOG) Android 2.3 operating system, also includes a stylus (called the "S Pen") which allows users to jot down notes and sketch pictures while they're on the go. The S Pen is designed to be as precise as a real pen and is pressure sensitive, meaning the harder you press on it, the thicker the line.

During CES, Samsung demonstrated the S Pen's capabilities by featuring cartoonists who sketched caricatures of conference-goers using the device.

The Galaxy Note reminded us of a more advanced PDA. Its native apps include a scheduling program called S Planner, and S Memo, which lets users record ideas in all different formats, such as text, voice, photos and handwritten notes.

Nokia Lumia

As expected, Nokia launched its Lumia 900 phone at CES, the Finnish handset maker's first Windows offering to feature 4G LTE connectivity. The blogosphere had been awash with chatter about the Lumia 900, also rumored to be called the Nokia 'Ace'.

The latest addition to the Lumia family has a 4.3-inch AMOLED ClearBlack display (which Nokia describes as its largest display), a 1.4-GHz processor and a main camera containing exclusive optics from famed German lens specialist Carl Zeiss. The device will be available via AT&T (T).

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga

Lenovo's oddly-shaped laptop sits in stark contrast to many of the sophisticated, businesslike ultrabooks debuting at CES: It's fun (well, that's how the company characterizes it). Part tablet, part ultrabook, the Yoga features a 360-degree flip-and-fold design that allows users to switch back and forth between using a touchscreen and a keyboard, which doubles as a stand.

The device features a 13.3-inch screen, runs on Windows 8 and allegedly gets eight hours of battery life. Prices and release dates weren't announced.
