What’s on your X’mas Gadget Shopping List?

It’s the month of December and for most people, the only month of the year when you feel you really deserve that much awaited gadget you’ve always longed for.

Luckily, it’s also the samr month you’d most likely get a bonus or a 13th month pay. That makes it much easier to the wallet.


So which gadget is on your shopping list this season? Is it a phone, a camera or a new mp3 player? Are you looking to get the big ticket items like a 37″ HDTV or a Macbook or will settle with a smaller token like the PSP Slim or the Nintendo DS Lite?

Last Christmas, I got myself a Canon 40D. This year, I wasn’t thinking of any and instead, thought of spending an extra week or so in Europe when I fly there on a business trip this week.

    Just for my collection.

    Well, none really, maybe I’ll pause for some months from now, on getting new gadgets.

    With what’s happening around the globe, that financial crisis thingy, I guess my predictions are these:

    – low demands on gadgets, abundant on supply.
    – prices of these gadgets might be slashed maybe as drastic as 50% come 1Q or 2Q of 2009.

    so maybe the few months after christmas is worth the wait.
    unless I can grab now a Red Zune. ;-)

  7. Leojay says:

    I’ve planned to upgrade my PC but this time, an AMD platform, a Phenom X3 with Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-DS2H mobo not much power but rich in features and good for my budget or the latest MSI Wind PC with prepaid broadband but more expensive and for the least expensive maybe just an Ipod Shuffle a good partner for an early morning jog.

  8. Jejo says:

    Maybe an LG Cookie, or if my parents can afford, a Nokia 5800.

    But I think I’ll have to wait until graduation.

    I’m planning to buy a Canon 40D BUT there’s a 50D

  22. elmer says:

    Bad economy so i guess no new gadget this Christmas :( just maximize of use of what i have right now.

  23. issai says:

    yeah, i agree with elmer, bad economy, no gadgets for me this christmas. i bought all the things in my 2008 wishlist last june just before the economy turned bad (42″ hdtv,ps3,2 computers). so now, i’m writing down what i want for my 2009 wishlist, maybe getting the wow expansion or rockband 2 for my birthday.

    merry christmas to all!

    I wish for (just one even):

    A Nokia 5800 (early 09 pa daw? I’ll wait for my SC-Nokia card to get approved)

    A desktop gaming rig (although I don’t have desktop space)

    An iPhone (although this is pure wish)

    An Omnia or Experia (again pure wish)

    A new watch (not exactly a gadget but this is what I’m really gifting myself this year)

    Actually, I upgraded this year to an E71. Best business phone this year for me, feature- and price-wise. I’m also getting my Samsung NC10 in a few days time, but that’s more a business need on a business expense.
