With 2012 nearly over, we love taking a look back at some of the most innovative mobile technologies making their way into the “mainstream” this year.
Keep in mind that most of these innovations actually started years ago, but they make this year’s list simply because they went mainstream or showed up for the first time in a high-demand flagship device.
I am not going to number this as a “countdown of the best”, because each of these technologies bring new things to the mobile world and how important they are is really a matter of opinion.
This is by no means a definitive list; we are also focusing on technologies in phones and tablets, not the devices themselves, though several hot items like the iPad, Nokia Lumia 920 and LG Nexus 4 certainly have technology present that makes this list.
Without further ado, let’s get started.
