Best gadgets you could own for the money

Below is a list of gadgets that you should be owning if you already haven’t, given that their prices are fair for the features they bring:

* If you already don’t own a smartphone, get one. The cheapest, but at the same time most well-crafted all-around smartphones are the Nokia Symbian S60 3.1 ones. I would recommend either the Nokia 6120 or the Nokia 5700 as they are the cheapest of all for the features they offer — while running the latest version of the operating system.

* A camcorder. If you just need “a” camcorder, get the Canon ZR800 ($230). If you need HD, then don’t even think getting anything else other than the Canon HV20 ($800). Consumers get it because the Indies get it, and the Indies get it because it’s cheap for what it does.

* Sony MDR-W20 in-ear-but-over-the-head headphones for sports. I can’t find any picture of it online, but we bought a pair yesterday at Frys for just $14, and quality/loudness was extremely good. Better than some other headphones that sell for much more. It’s the only “in-ear” model that actually fits in my ears.

Hi Eugenia,
I recently began to use Series 60 smartphones…mainly because my Treo broke down.

For me, a Treo still is the better smartphone, if just because of the keyboard. T9 on a 3×4 keyboard CANNOT work for entering long texts…at least it cannot work for me.

And don’t get me started on the email client of my N71…

Best regards
