The Must Have Gadgets In The Year 2012: PS Vita, Kindle Fire, Aspire S3, iPhone 4S

The dazzling world of consumer technology is filled with many a bright star gadget, but if you want to hone your desires on just a few products then these might be some of the best in the business.

Sony PlayStation Vita
Forget the Nintendo 3DS and its child-friendly software and gimmicky hardware; the PlayStation Vita is where serious gamers will go to get their portable thrills. The five inch OLED screen is large, bright, colour-rich and touch sensitive. A secondary touch panel on the back of the Vita invites you to experience gameplay with new, intuitive controls. Meanwhile the Vita is also something of a graphical powerhouse, able to echo the PlayStation 3 home console in terms of visuals without needing to sit under your TV to be enjoyed in full.

Amazon Kindle Fire
The tablet market is dominated by the iPad 2 but Amazon has created a viable alternative for the budget conscious tech fan. With a seven inch display, dual core processor and heavily customised Android 2.3 operating system, the Kindle Fire is much more than just an eBook Reader. It can browse the web, playback media files and let you buy and download many different things to keep you entertained on the go. Gaming is also possible, with popular titles like Angry Birds making the Kindle Fire feel relevant and fresh in a sea of imitators.

Acer Aspire S3
This Windows-based laptop is packed with the latest technology, including an Intel Core i7 processor, a 13.3 inch screen and a brushed metal chassis. The Aspire S3 will be one of the thinnest Windows laptops you have ever seen because it is part of the growing Ultrabook family which Intel has developed in tandem with manufacturers including Acer and Toshiba in order to take on the Apple MacBook Air. Its price matches the prestige of its hardware and design, so it is a worthwhile investment for those who need computing power on the go.

iPhone 4SPanasonic Lumix LX5
Not everyone can carry a digital SLR with them at all times but the Lumix LX5 shows that you do not have to in order to take great photographs from a compact camera. 720p video capture and a 10 megapixel sensor combine with excellent software and a powerful Leica lens. While the lack of interchangeable lens might put some purists off this gadget, it should win over everyone else.

Apple iPhone 4S
The fifth iPhone is still one of the best smartphones in existence, despite Apple`s rivals doing a good job of catching up in recent years. Dual core processing power and far more graphical grunt make this a great portable gaming device. Meanwhile the quality and quantity of the software available to download from the App Store remains unbeaten. Add in an excellent eight megapixel camera with full HD video recording and the Siri voice-controlled digital assistant service and you have the whole package which makes contemporary iPhone deals so alluring.
