The event was a heady mix as drinks flowed freely and everyone was spoiled for choice as appetizers of various kind kept on appearing, as if by magic. However, the main theme of the event was not lost as the Innovations Awards honorees were displayed and representatives of various companies explained to the media proudly about what sets their products apart from their rivals.

This year Samsung and HP were conspicuous by their absence at the CES Unveiled event and allowed rivals like LG and Lenovo to grab the spotlight.

LG's award-winning Ultra-High Definition CINEMA 3D Smart TV (84LM9600) was a showstopper. The 84-inch 4K television, which won the Innovations Award at video display category, features a stunning display, 10 speakers and 2 sub-woofers, and an impressive combination of CINEMA 3D and Smart TV features. The 84-inch television costs a whopping $19,999.99, a price tag the common man cannot afford.

Lenovo showcased various products and announced to the world it's plunge into the 5-inch smartphone race with IdeaPhone S890. The smartphone runs on Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) and is powered by a dual-core 1.2Ghz processor that can handle HD video and games smoothly. IdeaPhone S890's 8-megapixel high-resolution camera is at par with the likes of Galaxy S3 but the IPS qHD 540x960 display leaves a lot to be desired. Lenovo is currently retailing IdeaPhone S890 at emerging markets such as India and China and has no immediate plans of bringing it stateside.
