Today was the press day for the Gadget Show Live 2012, the show opens to the public tomorrow and while there wasn’t a lot of new devices to show off I did get some pictures I thought I would share. I also have a few videos which I will get up over the next few days. Once again my highlight was the retro zone by the Centre for Computing History but I will do a separate post for that.

It’s been a while but I finally got to see a Raspberry Pi in the flesh, once again lots of interest in the low cost computer.

Samsung had a pretty big presence with lots of its Galaxy Tablets and phones on show.

Samsung had a selection of their Tabs on display, the 7.7 is a nice form factor but I don’t think Android works as well on a tablet as it does on a phone.

I am using my Samsung Galaxy Note full time as my phone now and Samsung had plenty of then to show off along with the Galaxy S2 which looks a nice phone.

Samsung also had there Navibot room cleaner which uses a camera to look at the ceiling to see where it is in the room.

Not all the gadgets were phones or tablets, Philips had a nice range of coffee machines.

For musicians there were lots of stands showing off music tools including iRig with their range of iOS add ons and apps.
