Everyone loves new toys and fun things to play with, which is why Xpressdocs has created this list of the best gadgets 2012 has to offer. For those who have purchased the new iPhone 5 (soon will), here are some of the best gadgets designed to keep you technologically on top of your game.
The newest versions of the Apple iPad offer faster graphics, 4G wireless, and a camera that many believe is better than expensive digital cameras, making it one of the best gadgets 2012 has to offer. The newer iPads are slightly heavier than previous versions, and ports for HDMI, USB and SD require adapters, but the tablet is still one of the best gadgets on the market today.
Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight
An excellent choice for e-readers, especially those who do a lot of night reading, the Nook Simple Touch is still under $200 and sets the standard for those who enjoy electronic books. The light fades on and off, and is not overbearing, appearing as a glow more than an overhead light. The device has a laminated screen protector permanently attached in an effort to protect the integrity of the screen.
Klipsch Image S4
One of the best gadgets for 2012 is the Klipsch Image S4 in-ear headphones that provide sound quality better than some sets that cost twice as much. The shape of the earbuds is comfortable, while there is an added bonus of a cleaning tool and storage case.
Logitech Harmony 650
Combine all those remotes on the coffee table into this single universal remote that is a best gadget in 2012. This universal remote is compatible with both PC and Mac electronics, combining up to five remotes into one. The button layout is easy to use and the device supports sequences/macros. However, at a cost of less than $100, this is one of the best programmable remotes on the market today.
LG 55-inch 3D OLED HD TV
Televisions are getting bigger and better, making it seem as though sets are outdated soon after they are purchased. LG’s 55-inch 3D OLED HD TV is where the television industry is heading and is by far one of the best gadgets 2012 has to offer. The television is a slim 4mm thick with a tiny, 1mm bezel that makes it appear as though the screen has an edge-to-edge picture.
There can be no list of the best gadgets of 2012 without including a digital camera. The redesigned sensor on the X-Pro1 uses a filter array similar to traditional film cameras. Add the EXR processor, the combined optical and electronic viewfinder, and this becomes the perfect digital camera for any gadget collection.
Slava Tyukalov Custom USB Flash Drive
Because flash drives are not the strongest devices, Slava Tyukalov created a USB drive that is waterproof, resistant to shock, vibration and static, and has the ability to withstand two thousand pounds of pressure. Although this is one of the best gadgets 2012 has to offer, it will be difficult to find them as only 100 units have been created to date in 1GB and 2GB models.
The best gadgets 2012 has to offer are great for the electronically savvy who like to own the most up-to-date electronic gear, as well as for those who need to upgrade current electronics that they already own.
