“It might seem rather obvious to choose the largest name in the US as the name to watch in the new year, but 2014 is the year for Apple,” Bill Maurer writes for Seeking Alpha. “2013 was definitely a transitional year, which set up the technology giant for good things to come in 2014. Today, it’s time to examine why 2014 will be an Apple-dominated year, more so than you might think.”
“Obviously, everyone is looking to see if Apple launches a smart watch, and potentially a TV as well. But the other items to look for are larger screen iPhones and iPads. Many Apple critics are calling for a larger iPhone, and Apple may launch a bigger one in 2014,” Maurer writes. “As for the tablet space, Apple will look to continue its dominance. However, the potential for a Google Nexus 7 model to feature Intel processors could make things interesting going forward for all tablets.
