A fantastic year is about to end, and we joyously embrace a new dawn. I wish all our readers a very Happy New Year! Though this year may end, it was an year full of innovation, ideas coming to life and technology taking new strides. But the coming year is expected to be full of surprises. There are a few things that you should keep an eye on in 2011.

2011-gadgets

  1. Notion Ink – Adam
    One of the strongest contenders to float in limelight in coming year is Adam. Apparently the device was open for pre-order and now its sold out. Though only the test device was available for review, it still was capable to draw a lot of attention this year. Its really something to look out for in 2011.
  2. LG Optimus 2X
    This beauty was unveiled a few days ago and is not yet available for a hands on review. But, looking at the specifications I believe that this device is certainly going to be the talk of the town in coming year. It is packed with Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset with a dual core processor. It has 4 inch screen and supports full HD playback. It comes with android 2.2 and will be releasing in Korea in January, and other parts of the world later.
  3. Google Chrome OS
    
    Google’s launch of web-store was one step further in full launch of Google Chrome OS. And now when Google has initiated the pilot program for people to try out devices working with ChromeOS, one can say the final release is near and definitely worth looking for in upcoming year.
  4. Windows Phone 7
    Though Android has overshadowed the market in recent times and growing rapidly, Windows Phone 7 after its release has definitely made a mark. It still has a long way to go. Microsoft’s strategy of scrapping the existing Windows Phone series and building a new operating system from scratch has paid off. One should keep an eye open for it as it may spring some surprises.
  5. HTML 5
    For those who do not know what HTML5 is, I will explain in short. HTML5 is a coding standard and the next major revision of HTML. The current HTML version is 4. HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language and is used to describe a web-page.

In following years we will find more and more developers adopting it and hence spreading widespread, thereby making our browsing experience more friendly and intuitive.

  1. I really expect for Google OS final release! I think that this OS will have a successful future like all their products! Android – a nice example!

    • Dan, Google OS is expected to release this year. Google has already started offering test devices to those who are willing to beta-test them and to gather general public response. I too am excited about its launch. One thing *nix devices miss is proper UI, which I expect google will work on. It is claimed to be fast and intuitive.
