Ev­ery New Year, geeks across the world im­pa­tiently wait for news that will tell them whether their tech pre­dic­tions have come true and whether the con­cepts of the past have fi­nally be­come ac­tual prod­ucts. This year will be no ex­cep­tion, as even the eco­nomic prob­lems in Europe won’t be able to put the brakes on in­no­va­tion. Noth­ing ever does.

Last year, the in things were the tablets, dual-core pro­ces­sors (which be­came main stream in cell phones and tablets) and smart ap­pli­ances. This year, there is a lot more to look for­ward to as the in­no­va­tions will likely not be re­stricted to any sin­gle seg­ment.

The new prod­ucts will start cap­tur­ing the lime­light with the Con­sumer Elec­tron­ics Show in Las Ve­gas, which ev­ery Jan­uary sets the tech trends for the rest of the year. New op­er­at­ing sys­tems, quad-core pro­ces­sors, cheap Ul­tra­books, new gam­ing con­soles... 2012 prom­ises to be an ex­cit­ing year.

The picture is still a bit sketchy, but here is a sneak pre­view of what you can ex­pect in Twenty Twelve.
