In Pictures: 16 most anticipated tech products of 2013

We’re not sure some of them are even on the drawing board, but they’d be great to see

802.11ac access points

With wireless data rates starting at 433Mbps, new wireless routers based on 802.11ac will more than triple wireless speeds, giving the technology the nickname Gigabit Wi-Fi. Already Netgear, Asus and Belkin have produced what they describe as 802.11ac routers based on the specifications agreed to so far. Cisco promises that next year it will ship a module for its Aironet 3600 access points (pictured) that will transform them into 802.11ac devices. Others will follow, creating an opportunity for faster networks but potentially significant infrastructure prep to support them.

LIFEBOOK UH574

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
