Most anticipated tech: End of summer edition

The next iPhone, Xbox, PlayStation, and a slew of new smartwatch products are just a few of the gadgets we expect to see as 2013 races to a close.

Finally getting our hands on the PlayStation 4
Rumor no more: the PS4 is coming soon.

Summer is almost over, and that means the tech calendar is about to go into overdrive.

The year has already seen the release of some amazing products -- the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4, and OLED TV come to mind. But there's an even longer list of products that have been announced but not released. And that doesn't even include the rumored (but likely) products such as the next iPhone or Kindle, or the even less tangible "iWatch."

With just four months to go, here are the products that we're most looking forward to before 2014 begins.

Since we originally created this list on February 8, we've dropped the products that have already been released: Google Glass, the Panasonic ZT60 plasma TV, the Razer Edge tablet, the Fuji X100S camera, the BlackBerry Q10, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition, the HTC One Google Play Edition, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S, the new Nexus 7 tablet, the Leap Motion Controller, the Nvidia Shield, and the Ouya (among others). But we've added several products, including some based on your feedback. And we've updated other products with new information, including the PS4, Xbox One, Galaxy Note 3, Nintendo 2DS, and a slew of assumed Apple upgrades, including the next iPhones and iPads.

Still feel we're missing something? Let us know in the comments, and we'll consider adding them in a future update.

Update, August 30: Added several products, removed others; updated availability information, photos, and links for many of the products that are scheduled for release in the third and fourth quarter.

Microsoft leaves Apple in the dust with tablet and laptop innovation in 2015

Will there be one Apple Ring to rule them all? That's what a patent application says. Plus, building the thinnest gadget isn't innovation anymore and Apple just got a reality check from Microsoft.
