In Pictures: Top 10 gadgets of 2012

Here are 10 that made a significant impact in the industry this year, listed in the order of their releases

Nexus 7

Prior to the Nexus 7’s release, the choices of Android tablets you could buy varied widely in quality. So Google worked alongside ASUS to create a tablet that would not only be a compelling product, but establish a standard that would motivate other Android tablet makers to follow. The Nexus 7 was immediately deemed by reviewers as the best Android tablet with a 7-inch screen you could buy, thanks to its powerful quad-core processor, 1280-by-800 resolution screen, and price of £149. It was also the first tablet to run and showcase the latest version of Android, codenamed Jelly Bean.

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
