AOL Get Smart Series Continues into 2012
Top 10 for ’12: Consumer Perceptions of Tech Trends
Didn’t get a chance to go to CES? Or you went, but there were so many exhibitors and products, you’re not sure what you saw – or what it means for 2012? Here’s your chance to Get Smart.
Lucky for us, we asked our resident experts at Engadget (the Official Online News Source for the CEA) to predict the top trends to impact the tech world in 2012. From cloud computing to inductive charging, from electric motorcycles to ultrabooks, they identified the trends, companies, and technologies that would make a splash this year.
We then asked our readers what they thought about those trends – which ones they were actively tracking, which ones they were excited about – and which ones would be game-changers.
We also asked our readers some intriguing questions about their favorite tech gadgets – and what they would sacrifice to keep them. Their answers might surprise you. Their passion for technology won’t.
Some highlights of the research findings:
- Cloud computing, device convergence and tablets as content creation devices are ranked as the top game-changers for 2012.
- The mobile patent wars are actively tracked by 43% of AOL Tech readers.
- AOL Tech readers are twice as likely to be interested in HTML5 Apps and NFC for mobile payments
- Nearly half of all AOL Tech readers would give up their pet to keep their favorite gadget.
