Ella Williamson’s Guide to the Top Gadgets of 2011
BBC2 Gadget Girl and LOOK magazine columnist Ella Williamson talks us through the hottest gadgets of 2011 along with the best power solutions from Duracell™, keeping you powered up and a finger on the technology pulse this Christmas.
They say Christmas is all about the kids but that means big kids and small kids alike right?! To keep the littler ones entertained this festive season, and to stop them pinching your tech tablet, invest in a VTech Innotab, the tablet aimed at children from 4-9 years old. With games, activities and stories this tablet will amuse and educate at the same time. The Nintendo 3DS is also a real wow product to hit the shops this year. Sporting glasses-less 3D technology, this hand-held gaming console will have your children wowed in three dimensions. Children, bless their hearts, are not the most patient of souls so thank goodness for the Duracell Speedy Charger RRP £29.99 offering a quick recharge for your kids’ tech charging 2 AA/AAA batteries in as little as one hour *.
So the kids have got their hands on a tablet but what about us older ones? The iPad2 has won countless awards this year and it’s not difficult to see why. It’s thinner, smarter and lighter than its predecessor, sporting two cameras and HD video-making capabilities. This wasn’t Apple’s only exciting launch this year. We were introduced to our new friend Siri with the iPhone 4S. With a super fast processor, top notch camera and our new voice activated personal assistant Siri – this is one seriously smart smartphone. Pop in your Dr Dre Monster Beats Headphones and you’re good to go. So, if like me you are a multi-tech tasker, you’ll want a multi-charger to keep your tech charged on the go. Duracell’s 5-hour smartphone Charger RRP £39.99 is just the ticket, giving you up to 5 hours extra talk time** and keeping you texting, gaming and listening to music wherever you are.
If pretty tech is what you’re after then look no further than the ultra gorgeous, vintage-look Fuji X10. With manual 4x optical zoom lens and packed full of features, the X10 allows you to experiment with your photographic skills or let the EXR-Auto mode kick in to adjust the settings to suit the light automatically. To add a bit of retro chic to your home, try the Cardboard Radio – a simple, stylish FM radio that you can plug your MP3 player into, and it’s made from recycled cardboard – wow! Speaking of pretty, we’ve all heard that curves are cool so how about popping the Blackberry Curve on your Christmas list. Make sure you have a stylish power supply to keep you chatting for longer while out and about with the Duracell Portable 3-hour smartphone Charger** RRP £29.99.
Keep your Christmas powered for longer
While technology is constantly taking us to new places, enabling us to do things we’ve not been able to do before, we’re also becoming more dependent upon powerful gadgets to keep up, stay connected, and capture ‘not to be missed moments’. Duracell’s new and evolved line up helps your gadgets perform beyond their usual power limits and thanks to its range of portable chargers, keeping your gadgets powered on the go has never been easier.
So let Duracell take care of powering up this Christmas so that you can get on with doing the things you love.
