1: iPad 3
Winner, winner, chicken dinner! Although the iPad 4 was announced, and released, in November of this year, the iPad 3 reigns supreme as the most searched-for tech gadget in the US in 2012, according to Google! This shouldn't come as a surprise, seeing as it was the first tablet to bring Retina-display-quality visuals to a tablet. It was quite a beautiful sight to behold when first using one (especially for individuals, like me, who have been using an iPad since before the iPad 3 was released), and I'm not sure the iPad will ever see a greater upgrade than what its 3rd-generation iteration received.
Personally, I think I would choose the iPad 3 as my top tech gadget of 2012, too. Either way, this is a fitting end to a list that clearly demonstrates a year rife with tablets and smartphones dominating the tech gadget battlefield. Which tech gadgets will make the cut in 2013? I've a feeling this tablet/smartphone trend will continue; but if someone manages to dethrone the great Apple in the tablet war, that will be a story in and of itself!
