As the old year winds down a sense of hope arises that the hints and inklings of new products and services that have been leaking out over the past months may actually materialise in the New Year. Some of them are products that vendors have solidly promised and assigned release dates to, some are part of vaguely marked road maps and some are simply pipedreams fuelled by persistent rumours. Others are services or intriguing situations that could arise. Regardless, here are some of the ones that have caught our eye and that we hope turn out to be as eye catching in reality.
Depending on the rumour, the iPad 5 started production in December 2012 or alternatively will be available sometime during December 2013. Regardless, it’s expected to be lighter and thinner than the iPad 4. Contributing to the sleeker lines may be GF DITO, otherwise called GF2, touchscreen technology borrowed from the new iPad Mini and that makes it possible to slim down the devices.
