As we move on to our top 2 gadgets we look at tablets and in at number 2 is the google nexus 7
#2 Google Nexus 7
If you’re looking for a tablet this year then you really should check out Google’s new Nexus 7 . The new Nexus 7 looks very much like the old version it’s slimmer and lighter than the original just 8.7 mm and 290 g. and significantly easier to hold.
The Nexus 7’s best feature is its amazing screen. The tablet still has a 7in IPS display but the resolution has been cranked from 1280 x 800 pixels to 1920 x 1200, giving it a mammoth pixel density of 323 ppi. The display is simply stunning and without a doubt the best of any 7in tablet around at the moment
The Nexus 7 is equipped with a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core Krait processor and the memory has been doubled to 2 GB.
It even boots up quicker than your average tablet. But there’s still no microSD card slot for expansion. It’s one of the only downsides to this tablet
The Nexus 7 comes well equipped with dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and now has two cameras rather than just one and is small enough that using the rear camera for taking photos and video is easy with generally crisp nice looking shots Video can be shot at up to 1080p resolution and looks good if you hold the Nexus 7 nice and steady.
So the top spot on our Top ten Gadgets for Tech Heads this Christmas is (drum roll)….. The iPad Air
#1 iPad Air
Apple have really out-done themselves with this product it is the smallest, lightest, and most powerful tablet out there. Its amazing size only 7.5mm depth smaller than most smart phones on the market. Apple have streamline everything possible on this tablet and still haven’t lost any of the essential features; in fact everything you find on the iPad 4 you will find on this device including the 9.7 inch screen a 2048-by-1536 resolution and over 3.1 million pixels, photos and videos pop with detail and text looks razor sharp.
The new Apple-designed A7 chip brings 64-bit desktop-class architecture to iPad. That means up to twice the CPU speed and graphics performance for everything you do. And a fantastic battery life up to 10 hours.
But all in all this is a great product as we mentioned in an earlier blog; the battle of the smart phones wasn’t as clear cut any-more with iPhone losing ground to its competitors but in the tablet wars iPad are leading the way. At a RRP of €487 the iPad is clearly the best tablet out there this year and that is why it tops our Top ten Gadgets for Christmas this year.
