Samsung Electronics unveiled a wave of new products at the Consumer Electronics Show 2011, the world's largest electronics exhibition, to a crowd of journalists in Las Vegas on Wednesday (local time).
The highlight of the event was the Smart TV, which boasts a sleek 0.5-cm bezel. Another product that drew attention was the Sliding PC 7, a combination of tablet PC and laptop that features a 10.1-inch touchscreen and slide-out keyboard.
Samsung also unveiled a new netbook called the Note PC 9 Series. Its super-slim body measures between 15.9 mm to 16.3 mm at its thickest and weighs only 1.31 kg, some 0.01 kg lighter than Apple's MacBook Air. It is the first laptop made with duralumin, an aluminum alloy used in aircraft that is lighter than aluminum but twice as durable.
Sony also impressed journalists at its press event with a lineup focusing on 3D. It unveiled a 3D camcorder, and a headset dubbed the "Headman" that delivers 3D content directly to the user's eyes. Panasonic, meanwhile, introduced a series of tablet PCs called Viera in 4-, 7-, and 10-inch screen sizes.
LG Electronics unveiled its new Android smartphone, the Optimus Black. It sports the company's latest Nova display, which enhances brightness while consuming 50 percent less energy than regular LCDs. LG also debuted its new Optimus Pad tablet PC, which runs Android 3.0 and features an 8.9-inch screen.
