Despite the crisis in the US and European economies, a wide array of new gadgets is being pumped into the market. I am trying to list 5 gadgets that can be labelled as top 5 gadgets of 2012. This is not an exhaustive list of top gadgets in 2012 or a user review of these gadgets.
iPad 3 (The New Ipad )
The Apple iPad continues to be the ultimate gadget for scores of technological enthusiasts and the third generation tablet does not disappoint. A stunning 9.7-inch retina display with 3.1 million pixels and a 2048×1536 resolution headlines the enhancements. Apple has included a new A5X chip with a quad-core graphics processor and dual-core CPU to cope with the huge pixel count increase.
There are three storage models available, ranging from 16GB to 64GB, while Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi+4G LTE options return. The camera has also received a significant upgrade and is now capable of producing five megapixel images and 1080p recording, making it an ideal purchase for anyone with relevant coupons.
Sony’s latest system has raised the bar for showcasing what is possible from a handheld console. The PS Vita features near PlayStation 3 quality visuals, thanks to a quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor and 4-core PowerVR Series5XT SGXMP+ graphics chip. It also brings advanced touchscreen gestures through a 5-inch OLED front display and rear touchpad complete with sixaxis motion sensing and three-axis electronic compass.
Two analogue sticks and front and back cameras also feature alongside Wi-Fi and 3G options. There are twenty-five launch titles in total, which include home console favourites Uncharted, FIFA Football and WipEout.
