Diwali, the festival of lights is upon us. It is usually one of the biggest festivals in the calender year of Indians and no wonder people use the festival as a great excuse for purchasing plenty of gifts. As a tech nerd, the best gift you can get or gift to someone is always a piece of latest technology. So this Diwali, let’s check out the gifts you can consider for yourself or your family to make it a happy festival of lights.
1) iPad Mini: iPad Mini is the smaller and more pocket able version of an iPad. It measures a nice comfortable 7.9 inches in screen size and can be picked for a very decent price of about $349. It may not be available everywhere in India, but if you have a relative coming over from the US or UK, you must consider this piece of technology. It is both easy to carry and resourceful. It gives you a great way to step into the Apple Ecosystem too.
2) iPod Touch-5th Gen: iPods have easily transformed the way we listen to music. Today our entire music library is stored in this small handy device that lasts much longer than your capacity to hear music on the go. Imagine if this iPod came with all the apps and features that a regular iPhone or a iPad comes for, and at a fraction of a price, would it not be a great buy? The answer is obviously yes. So this Diwali, why not pick the latest iPod Touch and treat your ears to nice soothing music rather than the blasts of crackers. And the new gen of iPods are available in plenty of colors too making it the perfect gift.
3) A Samsung LED Smart TV: I until recently failed to understand the fuss people made in picking their TV sets. I had been a loyal Sony Bravia user until I recently tested the Samsung Smart LED TV. If you are in for a TV this Diwali go ahead and pick this. The picture quality is amazing, but the ability to run apps, play games as well as stream content on your TV has never been easier. Also, it is very competently prized which would make it a great pick on Diwali. Do look out for various exchange schemes as well as discounts with your local retailers, you could get as high as 25% off if you have your eyes open.
4) A Nexus 4 Smart Phone: We love Nexus devices here at Blogtechnika. And the latest in the line of Nexus is the Nexus 4. It is a device made by LG and beautifully carved in glass. The phone gives you pure Android Vanilla Ecosystem, Android, just the way it should have been. The device is very well priced for just $299 unlocked if you pick from Google in the US. In India too you can pre order the phone for as low as Rs. 21,000. The phone has every single feature and much more than any of the other high end Android smart phones out there like the HTC One X, Note II, SIII or Xperia TL.
5) A DSLR Camera: We all love to capture that special moment with our family and friends, and what better way to do that than a DSLR camera. These are in rage of late as every Tom and Jerry seem to think they are photographers, as a result there are plenty of DSLR’s especially by Canon and Nikon that can be picked for a very reasonable price. It also makes for a wonderful gift for family and friends. You can pick a DSLR starting at about Rs 25,000 or up depending on the model and the lens configuration you wish to pick up. We would highly recommend the Canon EOS 600D SLR and Nikon D3200 SLR as potential good choices.
