    Some of my favorite gadgets of 2010. What are yours?

    I figured with 2010 winding down I'd give a short list of my fav gadgets of the year. 2011 is gonna be crazy in tech. I'd love to see some of your faves as well!

    I'm a phone addict so here's a few of this years top devices for me.
    Android phones:
    The Google Nexus One from HTC. This phone is still a powerhouse and kicks all kinds of butt.

    Dell Streak! This is my current favorite device to use. It's size is imposing, but it works great and web browsing is killer.

    Samsung Galaxy S phones. Killer screen and internals with one sweet display.


    iPhone 4. Fanboys and girls like to argue about the advantages of their favorite OS, but iP4 is a seriously good phone. When I was using it reception and battery were pleasant surprises. The display is just amazing and it continues to improve upon the most popular line of phones on the Planet.


    Tablets: The iPad and now the Galaxy Tab are selling well and it can only mean more choices and improvements from competitors in the next few months.



    Internet TV: Apple TV 2 and Logitech Revue are my favs, but I'll also throw and honorable mention out to Roku HD.



    Macbook Air 11". It's pricey and underpowered and I absolutely don't care one single bit. This is the hottest looking piece of gear I've seen in a long time. For productivity the Macbook is a better choice, but I'd have a tough time not buying the Air.


    My sleeper choice is Windows Phone 7. I love it to death and along with ZunePass it will get a ton of use from me between the Samsung Focus and HTC Surround.
    Focus:


    Oh, and $500 50" Plasmas

    I may as well just use your image

    I now have the focus, after having the iphone for 4 years now, I am finally sick of it and I am seriously enjoying my focus. I also had the Samsung Captivate but I sent it back. Just didn't quite like it and I've come to the realization that after trying 3 different android phones, I just don't like them! Personal preference.
    Focus:


    I've also recently purchased a 13inch macbook pro.

    Samsung 50 inch 3D plasma tv, which I am enjoying a lot


    Bought a bose acoustimass system as well.. I think that's it.

    On top of that and about 9 new snake purchases later, I'm done for buying stuff for 2010!

    Oh? From where? Or is that why they just released a bunch of content for it in the last month? Personally I don't care, I look at it as a top of the line plasma tv with the added benefit of being able to watch 3D content. Just finished Alice in Wonderland in 3D actually, pretty good movie.

    I'm jealous of that TV! Plasma owns and 3D is a nice plus. If it takes off I'll jump on it at some point. Nice gadget buys!

    The tv is the only thing I paid full price for and I definitely don't regret for a second. Played all of black ops in 3D as well, that was awesome.. Had to take a few breaks though. Don't use the actual 3D all that often because I don't want to get used to it. They have recently released some IMAX 3D films on 3D blu-ray.. that is just awesome! I find the real life 3D content compared to animated is a lot different though.. in my opinion, the real life stuff is better than animated.
