The gadgets and gizmos that caught our eye at CES

From genuine 3D technology to slick new e-readers, these products are the best of the crop from this year's International Consumer Electronics show. Get all CES news here.

E-reader done right

I've seen a lot of e-readers lately, and in spending some quality time with Spring Designs' Alex Reader, I came to appreciate much about the company's approach to e-readers.

It doesn't have the biggest display, nor the most colourful one.

But this Android-based device does have a highly usable and well-integrated LCD, and its ability to flow content browsed anywhere on the web to the e-reader gives this model a unique edge over the competition.

Another excellent e-reader

E-readers were one of the hottest categories of the show this year, and the most compelling new model we've seen is the Plastic Logic Que.

This 10.7in reader sports a capacitive-touch display that lets you gesture through page turns.

It will be available in the US April in a 4GB Wi-Fi version for $649 (£398), and an 8GB version with Wi-Fi and 3G for $799 (£491).
