Every year many gadgets make way to the market and 2012 is full of many expected gadgets. And here is the list of most exciting and awaited gadgets that will be launched in 2012.
Apple iPad 3
Apple iPad 3 has won the Stuff Gadget Award for most wanted future gadget in the 2011. Apple iPad3 is in the news since the launch of iPad2.
2011 had some more prominent names and products making news like Android’ Asus original Transformer (winner of Product of the year award by Stuff Gadget Award2011) and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 also impressed people. But expectation from Apple iPad3 is much higher; people are expecting it to take things to another level.
Up till now, there are many rumors about Apple iPad3 features. 10 inches screen, A6 processor and a carbon fiber case are some of the few of them. And all these features seem to be impressive enough and set the standards high for Apple’s upcoming iPad. And the Apple iPad3 is soon going to make it to the market.
PlayStation’s next generation PS3 is also going to be launched in 2012. This hand held PlayStation Vita can easily fit in you pocket which makes it extremely portable. PlayStation Vita has a processor of ARM9 with 5in OLED touch screen, tactile back panel also containing dual cameras for real edge to gaming. And all these features indicate only one thing that Sony is only interested in serious business.
But the challenge for the PlayStation Vita is that its target audience has moved to the smart phones for gaming. Apple, Samsung and other smart phones are providing very good gaming options so now only time will reveal whether PlayStation Vita can survive or not.
Samsung Galaxy S III
Samsung Galaxy S II certainly has a place in the market and it was one of few phones to make huge impact on smart phone industry. And it still is the best phone to buy when it comes to Android phones. And it has been the phone of the year for 2011 as well.
Now with Samsung Galaxy S II reaching its debut birthday, people are expecting its descendant to make same impact. Samsung Galaxy S III is rumored to have a quad core engine with 2 GB RAM, 4.6 inches of screen and a 12 MP camera.
Samsung Galaxy S III is likely to be unveiled by the end of February during Mobile World Congress and is going to be a very powerful phone.
“Apple is dominating the smart phone and tablet market”, this statement is a fact which deserves respect of a universal truth. But it is still venturing into more new things. And one such example can be the Apple TV. The Apple TV is speculated to have swirling around specifications like mobile device synching and gesture controls.
And this is not it, Apple TV is surely something more than that a simple smart TV. It will have an A6 processor, a huge Retina Display and voice controls.
And if Apple is involved, one cannot stop on the specifications only. This iTV is going to revolutionize the world like other Apple products. And the only hint which can be provided here is that Apple TV is also aiming at the changing the conventional methods of broadcasting.
Amazon Kindle Fire
Amazon has made nothing public about Amazon Kindle Fire but chances and rumors are that Amazon will hit the tablet market earlier this year.
If you are expecting it to be an iPad killer then get ready to face disappointment as it is not. In fact Amazon Kindle Fire is more of an anti iPad. The only prominent feature of this product is 3G free mobile experience and it is something that has nothing to do with making difference but Amazon is more into just entering the tablet market.
If you are not really into technicalities or hi-fi stuff then Amazon Kindle Fire is really worth waiting for and especially when it is priced half of an iPad. So let’s wait for Amazon Kindle Fire to be finally launched.
Yes we all were a bit disappointed as we were expecting iPhone5 to be launched when Apple surprisingly offered us iPhone4S but no worries because now iPhone5 is soon going to be with us.
September is the month for Apple iPhone5 and one thing to be noticed here is that there was a 16 month gap between the release of iPhone 4 and 4S. And for iPhone5, Apple will be breaking its tradition of launching phone in summer.
But the features of this edition of iPhone deserve this much of waiting period. iPhone5 will have a 4 inches of screen, quad core processor, NFC and integrated SIM.
Nokia Lumia 900
Nokia got back some of its lost popularity with the Windows Phone 7 Lumia 800, which was launched last year. Despite the aura of this phone is still keeping people busy, rumors are that Nokia will launch its successor at the CES, the world’s largest consumer electronics show in Las Vegas. This new Lumia 900 will have a 4.3 inches screen and the most exciting part is it will debut the latest version of Windows Phone 7, also known as Tango.
The most hit US video on demand service, that is in the business of providing various films and TV shows to its many consumers for monthly charges, is going to ask its customers to sign up for its unlimited streaming service.
And to make things more exciting and tempting, it is going to offer the service for free for the first month with no restriction on data. And that means that users can watch their favorite movies and tv shows as much as they want.
And Netflix is also busy in doing a very worthwhile service for you i.e. to enable suggested viewing on the basis of its users’ likeness for different stuff. The application will be available on the iPhone, iPad and Android, Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3. Netflix is also trying to get this application to the smart TVs.
And the most important news is it will be available soon.
Nintendo Wii U
The Nitendo’s most popular Wii console is going to the next level with Wii U. the Wii U will work as a slate controller that perform as a second window for fresh gaming views and it accepts touch control input for zany control options. And Wii U, like PS3 and Xbox 360, will treat the TV to HD graphics.
Nitendo has promised this Wii U to be much more powerful than the Xbox360 and PS3 and the twist here is that Reffie Fils-Aimem, Ninty’s USA president, has said it on record that Wii U will not make it to the market even after April 1.
