Oh how the world of mobile technology has changed in just 12 short months. Last year at this time, there were no 4G LTE phones available and all Android tablets ran on version 2.2 or earlier of Google's OS. Steve Jobs was still with us last December, but Siri was not. AT&T hadn't made a bid for T-Mobile yet, while both Skype and Motorola remained independent companies.

With technology moving so quickly, it's easy to lose track of 2011's most-important trends and events. Here are the top 12 mobile tech stories of the year, all of which will continue to affect our daily lives well into 2012 and beyond.
