It was a huge year for the iPhone 4, that began with someone leaving a prototype model in a bar and our US cousins buying the phone and dismantling it for the world to see.

It's been a massive year for Apple, with the iPad, iPhone 4, refreshed Apple TV and Macbook Air and the latest versions of iWork and iLife all hitting shelves. Will they be able to continue the momentum in 2011? We'll find out, soon enough...
