Gadgets to Watch Out for in 2010?

With 2009 past behind us, you are definitely on my side that there are some useless gadgets from last year that were not so much a hit (and a not so good idea to start with), and we're hoping that new gadgets this year would be better enough to wow us (at least... if we can't buy).

Here are some gadgets “now showing” for 2010:

1.Amazon Kindle 2 International Version

This e-reader has it's second generation released in 2009, but during that time it was only released in the US, and after releasing an international version (which could work in over 100 countries), the world is now starting to catch up on this e-book reader.


A standalone online radio that allows you to listen to thousands of radio stations without the need to connect using your laptop or PC. Pandora music radio also allows you to customize your music and programming by utilizing dedicated “thumbs up” and “thumbs down” button on the device. You don't have to access your computer or setup a software through your PC or phone to connect and listen. It has its own speaker, a remote, connects online using wi-fi, works pretty well with any audio source and can also be used as an alarm clock.

3.Optimus Tactus Keyboard

Imagine your keyboard – without keys. That's what Optimus Tactus Keyboard is all about. It's a touchscreen flat surface “touchboard” (I can no longer use “keyboard” because now it has none). That allows you to program each individual keys on wherever you like it. The cool thing about this keyboard is after pressing here and there, just wipe up those sweat and smudges and you can turn it to a video screen.

4.Nikon S1000PJ

A not so typical compact digital camera that you can bring during a presentation. This 12.1 megapixel camera has a built-in projector. Point and shoot and just press a little button and it will show you your favorite pics and your latest shoots on any flat surface that's up to 40 inches in size. You can also add some music aside from numerous transitions you could do to make your presentation aplomb. (Nikon S1000pj)

5.Apple Tablet

No official news about its release yet but Apple Tablet (iPad) is now getting a lot of attention online. This sleek and thin device is again a multi-touch screen that would enable a user to get online, browse websites, send emails, flick photos and pretty much everything you do online.. (for Apple it means to point and touch). Although there have been a lot of rumors about how this product would fare, there has been a growing criticism about iPad saying it's an iPhone, only it is oversized.
