If you thought 2012 was great for gadgets, we warn you, you ain’t seen nothing yet. For it’s going to rain amazing tech in 2013. Here’s our look at what the year will have in store for us Team My Mobile o, notwithstanding the pre-

S

dictions of the Doomsday pundits and the Mayans, the world did not end in 2012. Which is just as well, for if 2012 saw some path breaking technologies and devices hitting the market, 2013 is going to be better, if anything. It is going to rain not just devices with better configurations faster processors, more RAM, more storage...the works - but will also see players old and new take steps that could redefine technology as we know it. There will be new operating systems, improved versions of existing operating systems, updates to well-known devices and of course, new tech segments altogether as companies realise that those who do not innovate in these turbulent times are destined for an early grave. Of course, there will be changes on the policy and governance front too - hopefully in India, 2013 will see the words ‘spectrum’ and ‘scandal’ exist independently of each other, even as a host of initiatives encourage people to make more of the Web and take the country a step closer to fulfilling its destiny as a tech super power. Yes, 2013 is going to be a busy year indeed. And we have picked and chosen thirteen (obviously, it IS 2013, after all) things that we think will define the year in tech terms - some are real, some exist in the territory of rumour, some are not confirmed - but each is revolutionary in its own way. So read on to find out what will make headlines this year.
