While I may not be there, or have the man power at 411Droid to cover everything I’d like to at CES this year, I thought this would be a great time to do a quick roundup of 5 new Android devices featured at the Consumer Electronic Show in Vegas.
Lenovo and Intel have teamed up to release the first Intel smartphone, known as the Lenovo K800. Word is the K800 will be shipping in China, and likely never make it to the United States. If you’re American and was hoping to get your hands on one, don’t be too disappointed as Android Police wasn’t very impressed with it’s “sluggish” browser and lack of internal storage(around 1GB). The device runs Gingerbread, and comes with a 1280×720 4.5″ display, 1.6GHz Z2460 Atom processor (single core with hyperthreading), and an 8MP camera.

Pantech Element and Burst
Engadget was on the scene for an interview from the Pantech team, showing the new Honeycomb tablet known as the Element. The tablet features an 8 inch screen, is splash proof, dual-core and will be available with AT&T January 22nd. The Pantech Burst which is also featured in the video, is a new 4 inch handset. The device features a super AMOLED display, dual-core, and will also be available in red and black on January 22nd as well. Will someone tell this guy to get a haircut!?

The team at AndroidSpin gives us a hands-on video from CES, showing the sleek new Android 4.0 powered Coby Tablet. The new tablet shown in this video is 9.7 inches, and has some nice features shown by the guy here in the video. The video unfortunately seems to have some audio issues towards the end, but most of it is fine.
A camera phone? Phone camera? Hmm, no… Just a camera running Android with WiFi and Bluetooth, and an optional 3g connection. The Android powered camera features 3x optical zoom, 720p video, 3.2-inch touchscreen, and 16MP sensor. The device has been reported to not be the quickest for taking snapshots. It also looks like the device is also running Android 2.1.
While Polaroid isn’t saying a lot yet, apparently they are in talks with carriers to add data capabilities. For now it does have a microphone, but no speaker. This could possibly be a decent VOIP device, which is good if you don’t want a minute plan. The device is expected to be launched in Fall, possibly with a data plan. No word yet on how much this camera will run you. Check out the video from AndroidPolice to see it live:

Toshiba Excite X10
It looks like the Toshiba Excite X10 has stolen the throne from the Galaxy Tab 10.1 for the worl’d thinnest tablet, at least until the new tablet launches. The Excite X10 is only 7.7mm thick weighing in at 1.2 pounds, making it 1.1mm thinner than the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
The Excite X10 sports a 10.1-inch IPS display with Corning’s Gorilla Glass and 1280 x 800 resolution, a speedy dual-core TI OMAP OMAP 4430 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of internal storage, front and rear-facing cameras at 2 and 5-megapixels, USB, HDMI, and more. The tablet is expected to sell sometime this quarter for $520.
