Though CES 2011 just ended, the biggest tech exhibit in Las Vegas was able to establish four trends: tablets, 3D TVs, Internet televisions and “smart” appliances. The trade show attracted over 120,000 attendees who came to see the latest and greatest devices from 2,600 exhibitors. Though it is impossible to see an individual anywhere near all of the products at CES 2011, here is Gadg’s list of the best devices found at the event.
