Apple will start shipping the iPad sometime in March. Has it lived up to the hype? Maybe, maybe not. But at least the $499 entry-level model is more affordable than we thought it would be.

This is old concept art for a next-gen iPhone but who knows, maybe Apple will move to an aluminum unibody design (similar to its Macbook Pro line) for the next iPhone. And perhaps we'll see a Verizon iPhone this year. We know a lot of people waiting for one.

Next iPod Touch
You'd think the next iPod Touch would look a lot like the next iPhone. Our guess: it probably will but will leave off a few key features. Hopefully, Apple will add a camera this go around.

Lenovo Skylight smartbook
The Skylight is what you get when you combine an Android smartphone with a Netbook (yes, it runs Android). We'll see whether it ignites a new category or fizzles.

PS3 motion controller
This is just a concept, but Sony's PS3's wand-like motion controller, which was demoed at E3 last year, is supposed to become a real product in 2010. Some say it will be the "Arc," but that's just a rumor.

Windows Mobile 7 devices
Microsoft says Windows Mobile 7 will finally arrive this year. Does that mean we'll see a Zune smartphone? Who knows, but it had better turn up soon or it risks becoming irrelevant.

This is one of those gadgets that everyone was talking about at CES. This quadricopter has a built-in camera and Wi-Fi for video streaming, plus you can fly it using your iPhone or iPod Touch. No word on exactly when it will be available or how much it will cost, but it's supposed to arrive this year.
