2013 International CES Highlights

With the International CES being the world's largest trade show for consumer technology, there's certainly a lot we didn't get to see. In addition to the iPhone 5 external chargers, cases and iPad accessories I was scoping out, here are some memorable highlights and must-haves from instant cameras to tablets and TVs. 

I can't wait to get my hands on some of the products from the Panasonic Pocket Beauty Series, including the Nail Gel Remover, Heated Eyelash Curler and a flip Precision Body Shaver - all in pink and perfect for travel!

COBY Bluetooth Portable Speakers with Rechargeable Battery, $19.99 - sleek and modern petite speakers  with speaker-phone function 

COBY 7.0 Inch Android 4.0 Tablet - the perfect size to throw in my bag and a must-have for fashion week! 

The Fujifilm Instax 210 is a fun, easy-to-use instant camera with great photo quality and picture size. A modern version of a Polaroid camera with extra features and settings

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 - fun colors and smaller-sized pictures

I've been looking for some fashionable camera bags and Fujifilm definitely has some good ones!

It gets tiresome carrying around my Canon T3i on a daily basis. The Fujifilm X-E1 would solve my problems with a smaller and lighter body, while allowing me to switch out the lenses.

How cool are these Polaroid iPhone / iPad lens cases and telescopic lenses for enhanced photography?

Polaroid's Z2300 Instant Digital camera with ZINK Zero Ink Printing Technology - view and crop images or add a border before printing. Prints 2x3' full-color sticky back prints in under a minute

Gaming fun at the Hisense booth

Sam checking out Nyne's Home Audio Series, including the NH-6500 speaker with Bluetooth, that doubles as a iPhone / iPad / iPod docking tower and guitar amp

iLuv Executive iCK838 folio cover with detachable Bluetooth keyboard - I love the slim design - great for travel or everyday on-the-go

My favorite amongst Samsung products will always be their TVs, which was the headliner of their press conference at International CES and amazing setup at their booth, featuring the 110" UHD TV, F8000 Smart TV featuring S Recommendation with Voice Interaction, curved OLED TV and OLED TV - Multi-View (3D)

So glad I dropped by the Red Touch Media booth, showcasing their retail kiosks for downloading movies, music, games and e-books. Guests were able to "demo" the kiosks and download free content. Red Touch processes more than 2 billion digital media downloads per month on it's platform. Learn more at
