5 Successful Gadgets Of 2014


2014 has been one of the most astounding years of the 21st century in terms of technological advancements; technology continued to touch newer heights throughout the year. A lot of gadgets were launched this year, which looked promising at starting, but only a few of them made it to users’ favorite list. The rest disappeared from the market in the blink of an eye. Here are the five most successful gadgets of 2014, which rocked in terms of sales, popularity, and revenues:

Google Glass:

Even though Google made it available for qualified Glass Explorers in the United States on April 15, 2013 for a very short period, but it was released for everyone publically on May 15, 2014. The starting price of this device was $1500. The Google Glass has quite a few inbuilt applications like Google Maps, Google Plus, Google Now and Gmail. It can also run a lot of third party applications like Skitch, Evernote, Path and The New York Times. There are a few issues with the safety features of this device, but overall it is the first of its kind and has gained attention of gadget lovers from all over the world.

Xiaomi MI3:

You don’t see a smartphone running out of stock every day, that too, not once, or twice, but many a times. Even before its launch in the market, it created a buzz around. The features, camera quality, price and services of Xiaomi are truly impeccable. It sold millions of handsets within a few months of launch, which prompted the company to create a new tagline that stated “we sell a new handset every seven seconds.

Smart Watch:

The technology is mounting higher every day. Earlier there were postcards and telegram, and then came the era of landline phones which was given a close fight by mobile phones, before the latter took over entirely. We have seen a complete turnaround over the past few years in terms of use of technology in mobiles. Now the time has come to take the next step i.e. advancing to smart watches from smartphones. Why take your phone out of your pocket, when you can wear a smart watch on your wrist? Not only does it show you time, but also measures heart rates, disconnects and attends calls, and sends & receives messages. There are two versions – iOS and Android. Needless to say that iOS version works with iPhone only, wherein the Android version works with Android phones.

iPhone 6 & 6 Plus:

iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus are the youngest members of iPhone family. With an advanced iOS software, slimmer looks and bigger screen, they both are must have gadgets for all the iPhone lovers. Within a few days of launch, iPhone 6 broke all the previously held sales records of any iPhone model. You can realize its true worth, only if you own it.

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro:

Apple vs Samsung has emerged as the biggest rivalry over the last few years. The new 12.2” tablet is the answer of Samsung to both Surface 2 and iPad Air. If you are comfortable working on Windows 8, then you cannot find a better device than this in the world.
