In Pictures: Top 10 tech gadgets of 2012

We’re still a few months away from 2013, but most of the hot gadgets have been released, or will be by November, in time for the holiday gift-buying season.

Galaxy S III

Release date: May 29

This is one of the Samsung smartphones Apple tried to get banned in the U.S., but failed to do. Sporting an enormous 4.8-inch screen, quad-core processor, and running Android 4.0 (AKA Ice Cream Sandwich), the Galaxy S III quickly rose in sales. (Samsung claims to have sold 20 million of them worldwide at this point.) A contributing factor was its aggressive launch schedule throughout the world that started at the end of May, and availability on approximately 300 mobile carriers. (In the U.S., this phone is available on all four major carriers: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile USA, and Verizon.) This ubiquity made the Galaxy S III the Android phone to have in 2012.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
