Top 10 New Technology Gadgets 2012:

1.      Jawbone Big Jambox

Jawbone Big JamboxJawbone literally took the phrase “Bigger is Better” to heart when assembling the successor to its popular portable speaker. The new Jambox sports a larger form factor, improved sound quality, and longer battery life to keep the party jumping in your living room or work cubicle. Smartphone owners can use it as a speakerphone, too.

2.     Kindle Paperwhite

Kindle PaperwhiteThe Kindle Paperwhite is a huge step up for the Kindle lineup, and one that makes what was already one of the best e-readers around far better. The improved resolution is the first huge deal: with over 60 percent more pixels than previous Kindles, the Paperwhite is a big step up as far as pixel density goes. It’s not a Retina-quality screen, but it’s a huge (and necessary) improvement that makes the Paperwhite a little closer to the paper-like quality that Amazon has been pushing all along.

3.      Sony Vita

Sony VitaWe’re in the middle of a massive change in how we consume our media. These omnipresent digital devices are rewriting how we receive information, and thus rewriting how we interact with culture on the most basic levels. Print has been withering away for years, and tablets might strike the killing blow.

4.      Leica M Monochrom

Leica M MonochromIn a photography world ruled by vintage filters and black-and-white imagery, Leica’s $8,000 shooter fits right in and reigns supreme as the elite option for colorless portraits. Its 18MP full-frame sensor generates higher-detailed and sharper images by taking in more available light. Then there’s the sexy retro-styled body case, a fashion statement that’s just as gorgeous as the photos captured on the camera.

5.      iPad Mini

The New iPadThe product we all knew was coming delivered on nearly every front. Sure, there’s no Retina Display, but when we finally got one in hand, we honestly didn’t think twice about the lack of the high-res display. We were too mesmerized by the excellent build quality, and how good it felt in our hands. There are a lot of seven-inch tablets on the market, but none feel as good as the iPad Mini.

6.      TDK IE800 Dual Driver In-Ear Headphones

TDK IE800 Dual Driver In-Ear HeadphonesTDK has been on a tear as of late, releasing a slew of excellent stereos and headpnones that are reintroducing the storied brand to a new generation of users. One of our favorites this year was the company’s dual-driver (one for bass, the other for mid and high ranges) in-ear headphones which, when paired with the right ear-tips, deliver a warm and sumptuous sound.

7.      Bowers & Wilkins P3

Bowers & Wilkins P3Most companies fight for their over-ear headphones to be bigger and bulkier, as if their heft is some sort of signpost of sound quality. Bowers & Wilkins thankfully doesn’t play that game and designed the P3s to be so light and comfortable you forget they’re on your head.

8.      Nexus 4

Nexus 4LG lucked out when it scored the manufacturing rights to Google’s new flagship phone. The end product: an amazing smartphone that boasts powerful benchmarks and a gorgeous look. Despite its lack of LTE support, the Nexus 4’s 1.5GHz quad-core picks up the performance slack by zipping through all onscreen interactions and delivering speedy results. Visuals look great on the 4.7-inch True HD IPS+, plus Jelly Bean integration makes for a smoother Android experience.

9.     Mophie OutRide

SALICompanies like GoPro and Contour have ushered in a new breed of portable action sports cameras, though the favorable device for capturing on-the-go video still remains the smartphone. Charging case specialists, mophie, introduced a new wide-angle lens that transforms your iPhone 4/4S into an awesome shooter for recording outdoor adventures.

10.   Sonos Sub

Sonos SubSonos’ huge TV campaign has brought public awareness to its awesome (and overlooked) Play3 all-in-one wireless music player. And if you’re one of the many audiophiles (along with Janelle Monae) to own the sound system, then investing in the company’s first wireless subwoofer is a must.
