The Ativ Q has a split personality since it can run two OSes, Windows 8 and Android Jelly Bean. But they'll have to learn to get along, since both are housed under the same body, which includes a 13-inch touch screen (with a 3,200x1,800-pixel resolution and 275ppi) and an Intel Haswell Core i5 processor.

If you've ever dealt with a camera phone's digital zoom, you'll know it's not the greatest. Enter the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, a 4.3-inch Galaxy smartphone with a 10x optical zoom on the back.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active
Designed for those who get a little rough with their phones, the Galaxy S4 Active is basically a waterproof, rugged version of the Galaxy S4.

Ativ One 5 Style
Minimalistic in its design, the Ativ One 5 is a touch-screen PC that aims to be an all-around "family computer." Sporting a 21.5-inch, 1080p full HD display and a quad-core processor, the One 5 also offers most of what you need for a one-stop media hub: it has two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, an audio jack, an SD card slot, an Ethernet port, and HDMI-in and -out.

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus
Donning a stylish, full-metal construction, the 9 Plus is a lean, mean, 13-inch laptop machine with a slender 13.6mm profile. Its crisp screen has a 3,200x1,800-pixel resolution, which will display Windows 8 in all its tile glory, and it has a reported battery usage time of up to 12 hours. Read the full hands-on.

For people who can live with a little bit less, the 13-inch 9 Lite takes the 9 Plus down a notch and makes it more affordable. But with that lower price, you'll also get a lower resolution (1,366x768 pixels), and a little more bulk (its profile is 17mm thick). Read the full hands-on.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini
Though we've already heard about the GS4's little brother a few weeks ago, Samsung still deemed it fit to mention it during its presser. And though it may be more compact, it still doesn't skimp on the specs, which include a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display, a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 8GB of internal memory, and an 8-megapixel camera.
