CES 2012 is over and FlatpanelsHD has continued to post articles from the Las Vegas show up until today. We conclude our CES 2012 coverage by looking at the highlights. We also pick the best new technology. Find everything from CES in the CES 2012 section.

Best of CES 2012

CES 2012 was intense. We saw new products, new systems and new technologies in every corner.

But one thing screamed louder than anything else; the OLED-TVs. We are still in the early phase here but LG and Samsung unveiled their new 55-inch OLED-TVs to the hungry crowds. LG had a few more details to share on their TV than Samsung but it is impossible to select just one winner. FlatpanelsHD’s “Best of CES 2012” award therefore goes to the “OLED-TV”.

Buzz at CES 2012

But what was the most talked-about subject? According to Mashable that examined the most active Twitter subjects after the two first days of press unveilings, OLED was definitively a popular subject – as were ultrabooks and tablets.

And in the press room we overheard a lot of praise for the OLED-TVs. Everyone seemed impressed. The press also chatted a lot about ultrabooks and tablets but the tone was a lot more mixed. Some seemed to like what they saw, others didn’t. And then something that was completely different: Apple’s coming HDTV seemed to be a hot – if not the hottest – topic amongst journalist groups in the press rooms. Everyone seemed to have an opinion about the yet-announced-rumor-only product. It was curious to observe.
