LAS VEGAS--We already knew a few of Samsung's product announcements for CES 2011, but the company held some of the more interesting stuff back for this afternoon's press conference.

Adopting the style of a fast-moving Demo conference, Samsung busily showed off a few dozen new products over about 40 minutes, starting with a Wi-Fi-only version of its Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet that will be available early this year.

Also getting time on the big stage was the Samsung Infuse 4G, which will be one of the first smartphones in the U.S. to tout Samsung's next-generation Super AMOLED Plus touch screen.

Samsung seems bent on bucking design trends this year, unveiling a number of products with unique style flourishes. John Revie, Samsung senior vice president, took the stage to talk 3D TVs and essentially declared the bezel dead.

Also touted today were a slim Blu-ray player that can access Samsung apps, and a fridge with an LCD screen and wireless connectivity.
