# 9 Nokia Lumia 900

Nokia and Microsoft launched their first Major phone together in the U.S. in the beginning of 2012. This may sound newsy because almost no one bought the Lumia 900. But now Microsoft has a smaller share of the Smartphone market and Nokia is trying hard to win eyes with its new comeback, Lumia 920.
This is sad news because the Finnish Company did a great deal and Lumia 900 was the best Windows Phone available when it was launched. The unibody design was smart looking and it came with a beautiful 4.3 inch screen and 8 megapixel camera. But no one really cared.

# 8 3D Televisions

The 3D HDTV was not introduced in 2012, which was the year for it to become irrelevant. It was a hot product when seen at the Consumer Electronic Show in 2010. The reason was to give a new ‘Avatar’ experience in your living room.  It was sure that most of us wanted it.
Despite a 3% rate of adoption in American homes, the industry has not abandoned the 3D HDTVs yet. It is still seen on the shelves of most major retailers. The glasses can be bulky, inducing headache. Picture quality in these televisions varies greatly and their initial prices were too high for most.
All we need is to expect less 3D content coming out while these TVs- which are completely capable of excellent 2D performance decrease in profile and price.
