Best of Computex 2012

  • MORE

This year's Computex was all about the hybrid. On the cusp of this fall's Windows 8 launch and in sync with Intel's new line of Ivy Bridge CPUs, the convention was brimming with devices that blur the line between tablet and notebook. Yes, the clamshell and slate are this year's royal newlyweds, the tech world's answer to William and Kate. It seemed like everywhere we went, someone was showing off a Windows tablet that connects to a keyboard and folds into a laptop or a notebook with a screen that bends backwards to make it a tablet or even a desktop with a screen that detaches.

But convertible computers were not the only exciting new products we saw at Computex 2012. There were plenty of other innovations, from tiny phone projectors to giant Android screens. Here are the six best products of the show.
