LAS VEGAS -- At CES 2016, we kept a close eye on new tech trends and devices as they make their way into the spotlight. Home automation, connected cars, and wearable healthcare technology were core themes of show -- an indication that auto innovation and smart appliances will be key for the consumer space in the coming year.
But while these trends certainly had a major presence on the show floor, we would be remiss to ignore the PCs, tablets, hybrids, and smartphones that consumers continue to use daily as the technologies of the future take shape. There was certainly a bounty of mobile devices on display at the show.
Venerable tech companies and newcomers to the mobile space have unveiled several new devices set to release later this year. Among the offerings are new smartphones and thinner, more portable tablets.
Windows 10 Mobile has taken a step forward as part of the announcements at CES. Two smartphone makers -- Acer and Alcatel -- other than Microsoft have decided to adopt the OS as part of this year's smartphone offerings.
Read on to learn more about the smartphones and tablets that will be released in 2016. Do any of them spark your interest?
