Time has released their annual list of the best of the best in games, apps, tweets, ads and gadgets. Love or hate Apple , it’s hard to deny that the iPhone 5, even with its little hiccups , is a really solid device.
Time believes that it’s the best of the year, beating out its archrival the Galaxy S III which doesn’t even make the top 10. Interestingly, the Galaxy Note II, which is arguably just an oversized version of the S III, gets the 8th spot. Here is the rest of Time’s Top 10 Gadgets:
- Apple iPhone 5
- Nintendo Wii U
- Sony Cyber-shot RX100
- Raspberry Pi Model B
- Lytro camera
- Apple 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display
- Microsoft Surface with Windows RT
- Samsung Galaxy Note II
- Nest Learning thermostat
It’s an interesting list, to say the least. I agree with the iPhone 5 being up there, but the Galaxy S III more than deserves to be on the list as its closest competitor. The Wii U has had a lackluster launch line-up of games so far, and its potential to run games that the PS3 and Xbox 360 successors will is still up in the air, so I don’t think it should’ve been that high up, even if it is still early in its lifecycle.
My list would have the iPhone 5, Nexus 4 and Galaxy S III with the top spots, followed by the MacBook Pro with Retina display and the Sony NEX-6 camera. What would your Top Gadget List look like? Post them in the comments !
