The Best Selling Gadgets Of 2012


As expected, the lists vary depending on who made it and where, because sales and usage differ according to territory. Be that as it may, you might find your favorites in the list below.

PlayStation Vita

from Sony is listed as top favorite for 2012 in one list and 7th in another. A handheld console that began with PSPortable in 2004, more than 71.3 million units have been sold by 2011. The PSP Vita belongs to the group of elite gaming gadgets with the capability to exhibit truly stunning graphics. It also has a micro SD slot to play some popular PSP titles, increasing its abilities.

Apple iPad 4.

Thinner and about half lighter than iPad3, this gadget has a 9.7-inch Retina display, an HD camera called FaceTime, and real fast wi-fi performance.  First three-day sales of iPad 4 and iPad mini was about three million, double that of the wireless-only iPad3.

Samsung Galaxy S3

Samsung made a superhit with its Galaxy S3, a smartphone that sold 20 million units within 100 days of being made available, surpassing Apple’s iPhone4. With a 4.8-inch touchscreen, 8mp rear camera and 1.9mp front camera, Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS and a 1.4GHz 4Quad processor called Exynos, the line is a bold challenge to the supremacy of the iPhone. Maybe the succeeding versions of both lines will tell which should come on top.

Apple iPhone 4S

Released in the latter part of 2011, it was one of the most popular gadgets for 2012 in terms of sales. Although many would-have-been users preferred to wait for the iPhone5 version, this gadget still managed to post respectable sales figures because of its ‘upgrades’  over iPhone4. Among the more significant ones is the A5 dual-core processor which launches apps and loads web pages much quicker, and allows smoother multitasking jobs. Furthermore, the gadget has a better screen resolution for much more enjoyable gaming.

Apple iPhone 5

This was made available after much promotional fanfare, and it stands to reason it should make waves. It did, and for the rest of 2012, it was a best seller. Thinner, slimmer, and lighter at 112 grams, the iPhone 5 was a substantial ‘upgrade’ from the 4S with a larger, brighter, and better color saturation touchscreen that holds five icon rows instead of four in the previous versions. All in all, the iPhone 5 was a big improvement over the 4S, but the improvements are not big as expected by many consumers.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga

It’s neither a notebook nor a tablet but can be either: it operates on Windows 8 system just like any laptop, has a touchscreen capability that nullifies the use of a mouse, and folds up for use as a tablet, although a rather bulky one. Its form perhaps indicates the shapes of things to come, and it was a perfect device for people who are more attuned to the classic laptop format but wants the portability of the newer tablets.

The above are just a few of the best-selling gadgets for 2012 so your much-loved item may not be there. If you do not have any of these gadgets or anything similar, you will enjoy acquiring one now at perhaps discounted rates, in anticipation of the later versions.
