LAS VEGAS: Day two of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and the releases keep on coming, following on from the manic Monday as detailed in our day one round-up.

On Tuesday, though, the headlines were stolen by Intel and Lenovo when they unveiled what is potentially 2013's most interesting smartphone, the K900.

Powered by an Intel Core Atom chip and featuring what, on paper, is one of the nicest cameras ever seen on a smartphone, the K900 is a truly interesting product. We'll aim to get a hands-on with the device later on Wednesday.

Aside from the K900 there were many other interesting devices to go and play with, including some from Monday's announcements.

V3 jumped at this chance, getting hold of Lenovo's Thinkpad Helix convertible tablet-ultrabook hybrid, Qualcomm's new Snapdragon demo tablet, ZTE's new flagship Grand S, quad-core Android smartphone and Panasonic's made for businesses 20in Windows 8 tablet.

All left us impressed and give us plenty to look forward to as they're released throughout the year.

Elsewhere Huawei managed to out-gun Samsung in the giant phone stakes with its giant 6.1 Ascend Mate device, running Android, and it also found time to launch its first Windows Phone too.

Perhaps the most innovative device on display, though, was the ultra-thin Papertab device, backed by, Intel (popular folks at CES it seems), which features a fully interactive 10.7in plastic touchscreen display.

While it may not be the most swish looking device just yet, it's a tantalising glimpse into what the future could hold for computing. We'll aim to get a hands-on with the cutting-edge tech before the weeks out too.

But don't worry if none of these products excite, CES 2013 is far from over and we'll continue trawling the show floor looking for hidden technology gems.

Keep checking V3 for updates of our CES 2013 findings.
