With the new year already here we can look ahead to the newest and hottest gadgets. By far the iPhone 5 should make the biggest splash. As we’ve already seen what the iPhone 4 S did to customers here and overseas, we can expect the same if not more craze for the newest addition to the Apple phone lineup. Following, shortly behind another Apple product the iPad 3, promises a longer battery life and a sleek thinner design. Apple’s competitor, Microsoft has a couple tricks of its own, including Windows 8 and possibly the next Xbox generation. Continuing in the gaming world, Nintendo will present its new Wii U, and Sony will bring its new PlayStation Vita to the forefront of the industry. Some other notables include the Samsung Galaxy S3, Google tablet, and the Kindle Fire 2. Whether or not these products meet, exceed or fail to meet our expectations remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure, these products will sell.
