It’s pretty crazy to think that all of a sudden Christmas and New Years are right around the corner! Another year has gone by in the tech world with a slew of new products for the consumer to enjoy. Tons of products have all come out and are ready for their big month, December. This will reveal which is going to be the top product in the country. Obviously these products all fit into different categories but every year there is a product that takes the trophy for the most popular item on the market. These products will also be your hottest items for the year and hopefully if the world listens we might see these items go on sale. Maybe. Hopefully! Here are my predictions on what will be the top products by the New Year.
Gaming World: No matter how much I search I’m always finding the PS4 and Xbox One growing in sales and popularity. Both systems haven’t even been out for a full month yet and their popularity is staggering. Both could sell millions of units by January and even though they haven’t been on the market for long their popularity puts them right in the race for top product.
GoPro: This little camera is sweeping the market like wildfire and as more people learn of its possibilities it could become the camera of the future. In a recent 60 minutes show we found out how many commercials are actually using the GoPro to capture the world. Also with the growing popularity of drones the use of the GoPro is unlimited. We see it used by science, search and rescue, surfers, sports athletes, it’s everywhere. And could easily surprise everyone as the top product by the years end.
Android: With the failures of Apples iOS7 mounting Androids new Kit Kat OS can easy jump on the opportunity to take over the market. Stock Android is a fluid system and I would love to try it out (donations would be great!) and the partnering with Google could shoot Android’s popularity past iOS.
Beats: It wouldn’t be a Best Buy with Mike post unless I somehow got the Beats by Dre line in here. But their savvy marketing scheme along with a quality, good looking, and great sounding product Beats has solidified itself in the market as one of the best. Think of them as the Nike of tech, they might be high priced but they deliver what the consumer wants and that’s just playing it smart. They are the only company who consistently puts their products on sale this time of year and their popularity does the rest. Companies need to follow the business motto of Beats because in just 5 years they have established themselves as a powerhouse in the headphone market.
As the year comes to a close either one of these companies could take over as the most popular item going into next year. The year has been a year full of tech innovations and it’s going to be interesting to see what these companies and others will do next year. Looking forward to it but for now I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
