iPhone 5 Ranks as Time Magazine’s 2012 Gadget of The Year

iPhone 5 Ranks as Time Magazine’s 2012 Gadget of The Year

Time Magazine has once again published their top 10 gadgets of the year – and this year, the iPhone 5 took the top spot. Surprise, surprise! Then again, it’s no secret that the iPhone 5 has been immensely popular, and one of the most desired gadgets of 2012…

Time’s Harry McCracken had plenty of good things to say about the iPhone 5:

The iPhone 5, which starts at $199 with a two-year contract, is one of the most artfully polished gadgets anyone’s ever built, with a taller screen than previous iPhones built into a thinner, lighter case. The camera, with a particularly well-done panorama mode, is another highlight. There are lots of nifty smartphones out there, including the iPhone’s impressive archrival, Samsung’s Galaxy S III. But when it comes to melding hardware, software and services so tightly that the seams fade away, Apple still has no peer.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 also made the list, coming in at number 8. The full list is as follows:
