While CES 2012 technically ends on Friday, the official Best of CES 2012 awards, organized by CNet, have already been given out. It was good news for both Nokia and Microsoft as the Lumia 900, powered by Windows Phone, was named the best smartphone at CES 2012. Neowin got a chance to check out the phone, which doesn't have a US release date, at CES 2012.
Some other Microsoft Windows-related products got named for CES 2012 awards. The People's Choice winner, voted on by CNet readers, went to Razer's Project Fiona gaming PC tablet. The award for Best PC of CES 2012 went to HP's impressive looking Ultrabook-style notebook the Envy 14 Spectre. The best software award went to Bluestack's Android app player for Windows 8.
Just in case you are wondering, the top prize of Best in Show for CES 2012 went to LG's super thin and super cool looking 55 inch OLED television that should be coming out sometime later in 2012. The best tablet award went to the Asus Memo 370T, an upcoming seven inch Android 4.0-based tablet with a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor that will go on sale in the second quarter of 2012 for just $250.
