While the show isn’t done just yet, we’ve rounded up 5 mind-blowing announcements that you should know about.
The Sharp 90-inch Aquos LED TV, Panasonic 145-inch 8K Super Hi Vision TV, Logitech K310 Washable Keyboard, Samsung Ativ S, and Sony Xperia T were some of the standout gadgets to be announced at the show.
90-inch Sharp Aquos LED TV
Sharp has announced a 90-inch LED TV, which overshadowed LG and Samsung’s 84-inch monsters.
The TV has 3D capabilities, 1080p display and Sharp’s SmartCentral system, which allows for web browsing.
Panasonic 145-inch 8K Super Hi Vision TV
While LG and Sony revealed their 4K TVs, Panasonic went ahead and surprised everyone by unveiling a 145-inch 8K TV.
The TV features a Super Hi Vision display with a resolution of 7680 x 4320 pixels.
Logitech K310 Washable Keyboard
Logitech introduced something different at IFA, with its K310 Washable Keyboard.
Those little vacuum cleaners aren’t needed anymore, as the keyboard can be submerged in water, and features laser printed and UV coated characters on the keys so they won’t fade.
Samsung Ativ S
Samsung surprised everyone by revealing a Windows 8-based phone.
Samsung’s ATIV S Windows phone sports a high-end 4.8-inch display, Corning “Gorilla” glass, and an 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera.
Sony Xperia T, V, and J
Along with revealing a new Xperia tablet, Sony introduced a new range of Xperia handsets.
The Xperia T will be the new flagship, with a 13MP camera, 4.6-inch HD display, 1.5GHz dual-core CPU and running Android 4.0.
The V and J are more budget friendly phones with smaller screens; the former is also water-resistant. Both of these models will be available some time in Q4 of this year.
