CNET Top 5
Most anticipated productsThis is the gear that has you chomping at the bit.
Well if youÃ¯Â¿Â½re like me you are looking at all your tech gear right now and saying, Wow I am I bored. You need something new donÃ¯Â¿Â½t you? I am Brian Cooley with the Top five most aniticpated products that you should, unfortunately, wait a little longer for. LetÃ¯Â¿Â½s get started. #5 Vizio XVT3D6SP series TVs This TV series was our Best of CES winner in the TV category back in January because it had almost everything anyone was talking about. Now we just plain want it. Passive 3D, LED, integration with VizioÃ¯Â¿Â½s new Android phone and tablet, Vizio Internet Apps -- which have been our favorite -- and its the first TV with embedded OnLive gaming! Maybe theyÃ¯Â¿Â½re just looking for a truck big enough to hold all that goodness. #4 PS VitaPlayStation Vita The PlayStation Go didnÃ¯Â¿Â½t really go anywhere, but weÃ¯Â¿Â½re still intrigued by Sony's pending whack at portable gaming consoles. Better graphics, yeah, 3G, yeah, dual joysticks, cameras, touchpads and a multitouch 5-inch OLED screen add up to cool hardware. But that intangible experience has to deliver. #3 Samsung Nexus Prime Android is hot, so the first device to run any new version of it gets big buzz. Enter the Samsung Nexus Prime, due late 2011 and supposedly the first phone to run Andoid 4.0, code-named Ice Cream Sandwich in the ridiculous tradition of Android releases. It should generate hype for having NO buttons at all, all touch. So its good the screen should be huge, a true 720p line resolution compared to 540 lines on top phones today. #2 Amazon Tablet Amazon legitimized the e-reader category. They missed the chance to do that with tablets, but they would sure love to take a bite out of AppleÃ¯Â¿Â½s ass with a strong #2 player. So rumor is they will roll out a 10Ã¯Â¿Â½ and 7Ã¯Â¿Â½ Android tablet by end of 2011. Look for the key differentiators here to be perhaps a lower price, but more importantly integration with services from Amazon like the Kindle store and Amazon Instant Video, as well as some of that for free if youÃ¯Â¿Â½re Amazon Prime. Before we get to the #1 most awaited product, maybe youÃ¯Â¿Â½re too antsy to wait for any of these. In that case, make sure you take a look at our recent Top 5 Hottest Products where Molly Wood shows you whatÃ¯Â¿Â½s hottest right now with millions of CNET users. #1 iPhone 5 Any new iPhone will be #1, you know that, but what will iPhone 5 be? Top bets are for an 8MP camera, a display that goes edge to edge in a thinner Ã¯Â¿Â½teardropÃ¯Â¿Â½ case... an A5 dual core processor on par with the on inside an iPad2, and possible a new curved shape that would make it look like no other iPhone. 4G network support still seems unlikely at this point, though, but we do know that if it arrives in Fall 2011 that will dovetial nicely with iOS5 and iCloud. OK, stand by, thereÃ¯Â¿Â½s a lot of good tech products coming every day at cnet.com, and for more Top 5Ã¯Â¿Â½s like this one go to Top5.cnet.com. I am Brian Cooley, thanks for watching.
