Avi Greengart’s Last Minute, Non-Obvious Holiday Gift Guide 2010

Avi Greengart’s Last Minute, Non-Obvious Holiday Gift Guide 2010

First, a confession. This guide is always "last minute," mostly because I get so busy covering all the new devices launched just in time for the holiday shopping season that I end up starting the holiday gift guide late. Last year it was so late that I gave up and turned it into a Best Products of the Year piece instead. This year I’ve missed Chanukah but I’m still getting in ahead of Christmas, so that’s good. However, I do usually try to make this a "non-obvious" gift guide. SlashGear already has you covered if what you want advice on the best cellphone, camera, Bluetooth headset, or the like. My favorite products this year include several on that list, including Apple’s iPad, Jawbone’s ICON, Mophie’s Juice Pack Air and the 11" MacBook Air. I’d add Amazon’s Kindle and Microsoft’s Kinect (assuming you can find one at retail). But what if you’re looking for…

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 36 2010

Welcome to the latest edition of the SlashGear Week in Review. Monday we found out that the Samsung Galaxy Tab would cost in the area of $200 to $400 depending on subsidies from wireless carriers. We can assume that the Galaxy Tab will cost on the higher end of that range. Later in the day on Monday the pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Tab in Germany surfaced via Amazon. The price of the Tab sans contract was listed at €799 or about $1,030 here in the States.

When you leave your laptop behind

When you leave your laptop behind

We've all heard how the phone in your pocket is really a PC. Well, a few weeks ago I put that to the test literally. I left for a week of heavy business travel in three cities to see if my phone (actually a series of phones) could replace my MacBook Pro. For my tests, I carried an iPhone 3GS with a Mophie JuicePack Air, a Palm Pre Plus and an HTC HD2. I also had a Stowaway Bluetooth Keyboard which works with the HD2.

iPhone 3GS Review

iPhone 3GS Review

With over one million iPhone 3GS units sold in the first three days, there's no shortage of opinion as to Apple's successes in their latest smartphone.  We've covered the basics in our hands-on first-impressions piece; with a few more days of intensive use under our belt, has the iPhone 3GS proved its worth?

The iPhone 3GS' striking physical similarity to the last-gen 3G came as a mild disappointment back at the WWDC, but we've come to appreciate the stability.  It underscores the evolutionary, rather than revolutionary, nature of this update and, perhaps more importantly, it means accessories acquired for the iPhone 3G will still have a place with the new 3GS.  For a device introduced halfway through the contract agreement of its predecessor, that sort of continuity was pretty much necessary if there was to be any hope encouraging existing owners to upgrade.  We do wish that Apple had been a little more imaginative with the finish, however; a matte coating, perhaps slightly rubberized, would differentiate the new handset while not demanding reinvestment in car-kits, cases and cradles.

The first new US iPhone 3GS users are picking up their handsets today, and SlashGear is among them.  We've been down at the Apple Store in NYC this morning, and have been eagerly playing with the new smartphone to see whether all the hype was worth it.  For the moment we'll put aside any arguments about whether it's too expensive to upgrade or comes on your carrier of choice;
