Coming in at No. 3 is the Nintendo Wii. Selling more than 13 millions units this year alone, the Wii has raised the bar among gaming consoles. The direct successor to the Nintendo GameCube, the Wii has a sleek design and groundbreaking game-play capabilities that have inspired intense devotion among its fans. The only problem now is getting your hands on one.
Coke Zero is the No. 2 pick on AOL's hottest of 2007 list. First launched in 2005, Coke Zero did not catch fire until the company took an edgier, younger approach to marketing the soda. This no sugar, no calorie, Coke Classic imitation has given Coca-Cola its biggest jolt in more than two decades. While other staples, such as Coke Classic, are losing market share, Zero's sales are up 34 percent from this time last year, giving Coca-Cola its highest stock price in seven years.
And, finally, there was the No. 1 product of 2007. It garnered a little bit of attention, you may have heard of it: the iPhone. Buzz around Apple's foray into the cell phone universe began to build from the moment its CEO, Steve Jobs, announced its release in January. Upon the phone's arrival in June, people stood in line for days just to get their hands on one. It's safe to say people went crazy for the iPhone. In the six months since the phone's release, at least 1.5 million models have been sold.
Apple has already changed the way people listen to music and given mobile communication a makeover. As for the highly anticipated products that may end up on the AOL's list next year, it's too early to call.
