Wait for It: 5 Game-Changing Devices to Expect in 2013

2012 was a great year for tech, but these expected gadgets will make this year even better

iPad Mini w/Retina Display

It seems like yesterday that Apple released the miniature version of its highly-popular and successfully-designed iPad, the iPad Mini. Like the original iPad, you can expect a newer version of the fast-selling iPad Mini to hit shelves sometime soon, equipped with a vivid Retina display. With the release of affordably-priced tablets like Google’s Nexus 7 and Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD, Apple is trying to keep its top spot.

All-Electric Vehicle by Tesla Motors

Which car manufacturer will be the first to design a vehicle with features that are practical, cater to different family sizes and have great aesthetics? Not many car makers have been able to do so until now. In fact, there aren’t more than about one to two all-electric powered vehicles on the road today.

Tesla Motors says those days are coming to an end…very soon. The Silicon Valley-based company first offering was the Tesla roadster. A small fully electric two-seater that got Tesla’s foot into the hands of consumers to prove they were more than capable of producing a vehicle that performs efficiently and looks awesome. Next up is the Model S. The Model S is Tesla’s bread and butter. It is the only car of its kind to be fully electric, has an excellent design that appeals to Mercedes-Benz and BMW owners, contains various technology features and starts at $45,000. In addition, Tesla plans to develop a cross-country charging network where people can revive their car battery for free (in lieu of refueling).

Ultra HD Televisions

With the outdated technology found in those big “fat-back” TVs being phased out of homes, people are now beginning to embrace both LED and LED smart TVs. But just as we mentioned before, technology only improves. Samsung and LG are planning to release huge 55-inch Ultra HD televisions. Ultra means at least 8 million pixels, with a minimum resolution of 3840 x 2160, and an aspect ratio of at least 16 x 9. Right now, they’re priced at about $20,000.
