Whether you're aching to spend those holiday gift cards on something new, or are looking to refresh your electronic repertoire, you've come to the right place. Over the past month, I've been scouting the best gadgets and accessories to add to your collection, and I've found a few essentials that you should consider. What's hot right now? Find out right here.
So the Christmas holiday has passed, and you're basking in the glow of your new tech toys. Or are you? If you didn't exactly get what was on your wish list this holiday season, take matters into your own hands and hit the stores — there's plenty of gadgets out there that are worthy of your holiday gift cards.
To bring you up to speed, the Booklet 3G was previously $300 with a contract and $600 without, so that's $100 in savings. And in terms of DataConnect pricing (which is basically pay-as-you-go for laptops), you're looking at around $30 for a week pass and $50 for a month pass. So overall, a pretty good deal if you're ready to make the plunge into the netbook world and like the flexibility of the pay-as-you-go service plans.
I've been talking the talk about Nokia's Booklet 3G for the past few months, and now it's time for me to walk the walk! What's not to love about this impressively tiny netbook that I finally got my hands on? Aesthetically it has the look and feel of an Apple product (and in our books that's a good thing) with its sexy sleek design, while still offering 1GB of memory and 120GB of local storage, as well as 12 hours of battery life. Naturally the keys feel a bit smaller than a regular keyboard, but certainly something you could get accustomed to.
Sadly with a Windows 7 operating system and 3G connectivity, it still doesn't run as fast as I'd hoped. But for its fancy design and price tag of $600, I'm counting on Santa to drop one on my doorstep this year.
Over the past few weeks, I've been trying to get prepped for the holidays with my gift guides, but now that it's December, I am finally realizing that my shopping time is quickly dwindling! If you're like me (hello — last minute shopper!), don't stress, because there's still time to get everything on your lists. Need some more ideas? Here are my must haves for this month that are sure to spoil at least one geek in your life.
If you're in need of some gift-giving suggestions, I've got you covered! Next up on the list is your tech-loving brother. You know, the one who has his nose in his laptop for as many hours as you and can challenge your records on Super Smash Bros.? Hey, he's your brother, so treat him right this holiday!
The wait is almost over for Nokia's mini laptop — the Booklet 3G. With features like Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, a 10.1-inch display, Windows 7, and 12-hour battery life, this tiny yet tech-filled netbook has been inching its way to the top of many holiday wish lists this year.
Well now you can really start saving up your pennies, but it's just been announced that the Booklet 3G will be coming to Best Buy stores on Nov. 15 and will cost $300 with a two-year AT&T data contract or $599.99 without. Amazing.
I happen to think that my dad is pretty easy to shop for, but I know that a lot of you out there don't know where to begin when it comes to picking out gifts for your dads. If you fall into that category, fret not! From now until Christmas I'll be giving you the lowdown on all sorts of cool gadget gifts to stash under the tree this holiday. I got our moms covered yesterday, so let's see what I have on my short list of gifts for dads!
Welcome the latest netbook to the fold: the Nokia Booklet 3G.
The cell phone maker is dropping its offering to the market with the Booklet, (which they're calling a mini laptop), which has a 10.1-inch display, 2.7 lb aluminum body, integrated 3G wireless, 12-hour battery life, Bluetooth/WiFi connectivity, and Windows 7.
This is a strong addition to the netbook game — and it doesn't look too shabby either, with its option of black, blue, or silver exterior. Stay tuned for pricing and release dates.
