Check the bellow content to get to know the Top 8 most anticipated technical products of 2012.

    Apple iPad 3

    Apple iPad 3If the gossip is true, the next-generation iPad will be a sight to behold. Its most compelling (alleged) feature: a 2048-by-1536-pixel display, offering four times the resolution of the iPad 2′s 1024-by-768-pixel screen and better user experience for users to watch HD videos on iPad. Considering that the iPad and iPad 2 each shipped in the spring, if the Apple Company maintains its tablet upgrade cycle, the iPad 3 is not far away.

    Microsoft Windows 8

    Windows 8Microsoft’s next operating system promises to be everything. Designed to power both tablets and conventional PCs, Windows 8 is ambitious and risky. The new OS will feature the touch-oriented Metro interface that we first saw in Windows Phone 7, which means Microsoft’s “reimagined” flagship OS will be the first Windows version since the iconic Windows 95 to revamp, rather than simply tweak, the desktop interface.

    Apple iPhone 5

    Apple iPhone 5Apple just released iPhone 4S last October as the successor of iPhone 4 with quite wonderful voice-recognizing personal assistant Siri and an excellent 8-megapixel camera. With the edge-to-edge design, the iPhone 4S provides even better video enjoyment for users to watch watch HD Blu-ray/DVD on iPhone 4S. The next generation of iPhone is firmly believed to be more suitable for HD video enjoyment. The rumored curved glass screen and daring teardrop shape are apparently still on the drawing board over in Cupertino. Assuming that the iPhone 5 arrives in 2012, it just might pack the visual wallop that Apple watchers have been waiting for.

    Quad-core Mobile device

    Quad-core mobile deviceSpeedy dual-core processors, such as Apple’s A5 in the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, will soon be old news as even faster quad-core chips migrate to the mobile market. Chip maker Nvidia says that smartphones featuring its quad-core Tegra 3 processors may arrive in the first half of 2012. And quad-core tablets, such as the Tegra 3-powered Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, are already here. Qualcomm, meanwhile, says that its quad-core Snapdragon chips will appear in Windows 8 tablets in the second half of 2012.

    Xbox 360 update

    Xbox 360Will the next-generation Xbox arrive in 2012? The latest rumors from reliable sources, including Supersite for Windows editor Paul Thurrott, say the next Xbox is slated for a 2013 debut. Until then, Xbox fans will have to be content with software upgrades, including an Xbox 360 dashboard update sporting a Windows 8, Metro-style interface.

    Android 4.0 phones

    Android 4.0 PhoneThe latest version of Google’s mobile operating system is already generating buzz in the mobile world. Android 4.0 offers a lot to love: a polished interface, improved multitasking, better search tools, and the intriguing-yet-gimmicky Face Unlock and Android Beam.

    Plus, a fresh batch of Android smartphones (led by the Samsung Galaxy Nexus) and a new generation of tablets (including the Asus Eee Pad Transformer 2) are designed specifically for Android 4.0, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich.

    Windows Phone 7 Platform

    Windows Phone 7 platformThe Microsoft platform is very strong in the enterprise space because of the management and security features released in 6.x. Windows Phone 7, released in 2010, will be a leap forward for Microsoft, with strong hardware and UI standardization better integration with social networks. Nokia’s adoption of WP7 should also help spur sales, and WP7 handsets such as the Samsung Focus S are getting good reviews. The next 12 months may decide whether Windows Phone 7 handsets succeed or go the way of the Zune.

    Sony Playstation Vita

    Sony PlayStation VitaSony’s Vita, announced last year, includes a five-inch display, dual analog sticks for game controls and a quad-core processor. The Vita will come in two models, one version with Wi-Fi only while the other version with Wi-Fi and 3G cellular connectivity. The detailed price levels of both two versions have been confirmed online: the version that includes both Wi-Fi and 3G offers two AT&T data plans: $15 for 250 megabytes a month or $25 for 2 gigabytes a month, while the Wi-Fi-only device will cost $250, and the 3G-plus-Wi-Fi one will cost $300.

    These are the top 8 most anticipated technical products in 2012. Of course, there are still many other advanced tech products which also are worthy of waiting and longing for. What are you looking for this year? You can share with us your own opinions in the comment part.
