Yesterday, Annie wrote about the nominees for CNET Best of Show awards. I just left the CNET South Hall 2nd floor studio where they presented the winners for Best of CES 2008. Though there were some truly deserving winners, nothing really rocked me enough to run out and purchase it (though there was one surprise winner and one I’ll certainly look more into).

CNET Best of Show CES 2008

I won’t list out the details as you can get that from the CNET Best of Show website. But here’s the list, and a couple of my comments:

GPS

Azentek Atlas CPC-1200

Cellphones and Smartphones

Motorola Rokr E8

Computers and Hardware

Lenovo Ideapad U110

Digital Photo and Video

Sony Alpha DSLR-A200

Emerging Technology

Bug Labs Platform

Gaming

Nyko Wireless Nunchuck for Wii – What?? This thing beat out the hot Gateway Fx720 and the amazing Alienware Curve. I guess I’m not much of a Wii-fanatic to really appreciate this win.

Home Audio

Logitech Squeezebox Duet – hmmm.. this one deserves a deeper look by me.

Home Video

Echostar TR-50 – Brilliant!! I can’t believe someone hasn’t thought of an HD DVR for over-the-air broadcast digital TV (ATSC

) before. This is great, and I might actually run out buy one!
