Technology news: Mobile computing isn’t strictly for laptops
anymore. The best gadgets to look forward to this year.

A wave of new iPad-like tablets and smartphones, equipped for
emerging, faster 4G networks, promise to keep us all better connected, and not
just person-to-person. An increasing number of devices—TVs, appliances,
security systems, even cars—can be accessed from afar via the Internet. In
2011, technology isn’t about where you find it. It’s about where you want to
take it.
