Unlike its perennial partner Microsoft, which is going on hiatus from CES keynotes after this year, Intel continues to treat the Consumer Electronics Show as its big set-piece event for presenting new products to the public. This year's highlight was the development of ultrabooks: Intel's new category of ultra-thin and portable laptops was only sprouting up at IFA, but CES is where it flourished into a fully fledged market segment. Intel also revealed new Medfield-based smartphones, some fresh and innovative concept designs, and a couple of long-term partnerships with Motorola and Lenovo to produce mobile devices.
