CES 2012 Recap: Gadgets Galore!

And here's what we didn't see ...

Apple's (AAPL) iPad 3:

We all know that Apple snubs CES every year, but that doesn't mean we can't dream about seeing the iPad 3 magically turn up.

Rumors continue to abound about the iPad 3 -- in fact a prototype of the device was supposedly circulating at CES. The tablet reportedly looks similar to the iPad 2 but with an improved camera. Reportedly shipping between February and March, the iPad 3 may also have Siri capabilities, better battery life and minor hardware upgrades.

Apple TV:

Despite a slew of gorgeous, massive TVs from makers like LG, Panasonic and Samsung, the most buzzed-about product wasn't even at CES this year: the Apple TV.

Rumors about an alleged iTV began to circulate last year when the Steve Jobs biography hinted the late Apple founder had "cracked" the code on making an Internet-enabled set.

Possible features for the product include voice controlled channel surfing, streaming sync between iOS devices and DVR storage within iCloud.

Samsung's Galaxy S3:

The highly anticipated Android-powered Samsung Galaxy S3 is set to compete with Apple's iPhone 5. The device, expected to be released at this year's Mobile World Congress in February, is rumored to run on a quad-core chip made by ARM Holdings (ARMH) which will allow for multitasking. The handset is also rumored to have a 3D display and a large 4.65-inch screen (which may even be bendy and flexible).

The phone is the newest model in the successful Samsung Galaxy S series, which has sold more than 30 million units worldwide since its launch.

Sony's (SNE) PlayStation 4:

Sony's much buzzed-about PlayStation 4 didn't make an appearance at CES, nor will it be at video game trade show E3, the company said.

Sony typically has a 10-year lifecycle for its consoles, meaning the 5-year-old PlayStation 3 still has a few more years before it's replaced. The PlayStation 3 has sold more than 50 million units since its launch in 2006.

The PlayStation 4 is rumored to include a movement-based controller, similar to the Kinect.
