Along with the fast development of technology in mobile phones and telecommunication devices, people have longed more for the future tech products and various high tech telecommunication companies become to upgrade their tech products faster, which enables worldwide users to experience totally different devices upon different tech products. And thanks to ZDNet Author, who has listed out some top 10 most anticipated upcoming tech products for us to make a brief understanding about these advanced tech devices. The following lists the 10 most anticipated upcoming tech products, originally released on zdnet.com.
New MacBook Airs
The new MacBook Airs with updated Intel Sandy Bridge processors Core i series processor are due to hit any day along with OS X Lion. The new Airs are rumored to to feature a high-speed Thunderbolt port and perhaps a lighted keyboard while retaining the same form factor.
Vizio XVT3D6SP series
Back in January, the Vizio XVT3D6SP series was our Best of CES winner in the TV category. On top of offering passive 3D and a full-array LED backlight with local dimming, the XVT3D6SP series is loaded with features. Here’s what editor David Katzamier had to say about it:
“The Vizio XVT3D6SP series is billed as a complement to the company’s new Android phone and tablet. It boasts a custom Google TV interface and a beefed-up version of VIA (Vizio Internet Apps), our favorite Internet TV suite of last year. It also has a spiffy new remote that replaces a trendy touch screen with a much more useful touch pad, a la your favorite laptop PC. Finally it boasts passive 3D (see below) and all of the full-array local-dimming LED goodness we liked so much on the XVT3SV series. Oh yeah: it’s also the first TV announced with embedded OnLive gaming (video).”
Samsung Nexus Prime
Rumor has it that the Samsung Nexus Prime, due out late this year, will be the first smartphone to run Android Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). Here’s what Scott Webster had to say about it on a post on CNET:
“Keeping with other Pure Google experience smartphones, the Nexus Prime is expected to be devoid of any carrier customization or pre-loaded applications. Rumors also have been swirling that the first Ice Cream Sandwich handset would also be notable for another absence, physical buttons. And given that the next iteration of Android blends parts of Honeycomb and Gingerbread, it’s very possible that any 4.0+ devices could operate without hard keys.
“The “monster-sized” screen will be branded as a “Super AMOLED HD” display, matching up with previous reports of a 720p resolution. For the sake of comparison, today’s top Android smart phones feature qHD screens that operate at 960×540 resolution, whereas mid-range devices now typically run with 800×480 resolution.”
Rumor has it that the Nexus Prime (or whatever name the device ends up with) will also have a next-generation dual-core processor running ion the 1.2-1.5 GHZ range.
Barnes & Noble’s Nook Color
While the Barnes & Noble’s Nook Color isn’t a full-fledged Android tablet (with Android Market) unless you root it and install custom firmware, it is the best-selling Android-based tablet out there right now, priced at a modest $249.
Before the holiday buying season we expect that Barnes & Noble will upgrade it, perhaps as soon as late October. We doubt the design will change dramatically (if at all), but we do think it will get a faster processor and some other small but significant improvements.
Motorola Droid Bionic
The Motorola Droid Bionic is due to hit very soon and will be among the few Verizon phones to work on the carrier’s new 4G LTE network. Overall, it has impressive specs, which CNET editor Nicole Lee summarized back at CES in January (watch her first-look video):
“Aside from 4G and the dual-core processors, the Droid Bionic also has 512MB DDR2 RAM; HDMI mirroring (so you can view video on both the phone and the TV when they’re connected); 1080p video playback; 8-megapixel camera on the rear plus a front-facing VGA camera for video calls; Wi-Fi, of course; mobile Wi-Fi hot spot for up to five devices (subject to carrier fees); and since it ships with Android 2.2, the WebKit browser also plays in-browser Flash video.
Amazon touch-screen Kindle
Will Amazon put out a touch-screen Kindle? Or will it release an even more affordable non-touch model to follow up on the success of the Kindle 3? Speculation is heating up as we head into August, which is when Amazon revealed the Kindle 3 last year.
It doesn’t seem like there’s much more that Apple can do with the iPod Touch, but there’s talk of an added 3G option (you’ll have to pay for service) and the possibility of a jumbo Touch that might also qualify as an iPad Mini.
Sony PlayStation Vita
Sony’s next portable gaming console, the PlayStation Vita, ups the ante in terms of graphics and features. But it remains to be seen whether the $249 Vita (or $299 with 3G) will be a hit after Sony experienced such a tepid reception for the PlayStation Go.
Due to hit this fall, the Vita has built-in WiFi, dual joysticks, multitouch 5-inch OLED screen, front and rear touchpads, and front and rear cameras.
Amazon Android tablet
Rumor has it that Amazon will be releasing two new Android tablets by year’s end. The smaller model may have a 7-inch screen and be something along the lines of the Nook Color but feature a more powerful processor (and be aggressively priced). A larger 10-inch model will allegedly be designed to compete with the iPad.
Apple iPhone 5
Will the iPhone 5 have an all new design or simply retain the iPhone 4′s chassis and offer such upgrades as a faster A5 processor and improved camera? And will it be a true 4G phone? At this point, no one knows for sure but all signs point to a Fall release date for the next-generation iPhone, whatever it’s called.
