Sing-a-Long: All I Want for Christmas is a New Android Device

Christopher Silva

OK folks, Christmas is just around the corner. And as we're munching on our Turkey tomorrow, I’m sure most of us will take the opportunity to make it clear what we want for Christmas. You know, the old “Wow Mom, great Turkey and very tasty stuffing. Hey, did I mention that the new Nexus 7 is just $199?”

I don’t know about you, but my kids are hitting me up already with Christmas wishes. So where are you at, and what do you want?

I personally would like to have the Nexus 7. First I was drooling over the Nexus 4. But since the update to my old S2, the Nexus 7 is looking sweeter and sweeter every day. I was in one of our local media and electronics shops here in Germany and played around with the N7. Wow, light, great screen and smooth. So I let it drop on my wife last night (no waiting for Thanksgiving dinner here).  I said, “You know, your mom and dad always spend a lot of money on dress shirts for me (I’m a business guy- argh). Actually I’m good on clothes this year, why don’t you guys pool your money and get me a new device and some accessories?” She kind of smiled- the one smile I don’t really appreciate–and said, “I’ll talk to my mom, but you know she doesn’t like all that technology.”

This was a bit of a letdown but I am not even close to giving up. Her dad and I talk a lot and he understands me, or at least I think he does. So like in Star Wars – Father in law, “You’re my only hope.”

Enough about me. What are your Android Christmas wishes, a new phone, a tablet or maybe a cool accessory for your current device?

Most importantly, to what extent are you prepared to go to make your Christmas wish come true?

    I wanted a Transformer TF300T but I already got that :) Well, I'd also like a Nexus seven and a Galaxy Note 10.1....

    Hi Anna, what would you do with all those tablets??

    0
  • Anna F. Nov 23, 2012 Link

    Yeah maybe that's too much... Initially I couldn't decide between getting the TF300T or the Note 10.1 because I wanted a tablet that could replace my laptop but I also wanted a tablet I could draw and sketch with. After a lot of hard thinking I decided that replacing my laptop was more important since I can always use paper and pencil to draw (which also results in much better drawings for me). So I could use my TF300T as a laptop, the Note 10.1 as a sketching and drawing device and the Nexus 7 as a tablet I can easily carry around with me and borrow to my dad :)

    Anna, good thinking. You very quickly rationalized the need for three tablets - Cool !

    Thank you :P We're probably going to get a 7 inch tablet for my dad anyway. Right now he has a 7 inch chinese tablet with a resistive touchscreen that runs Froyo -.-
    Since the Nexus 7 isn't available in Greece where I live (only the 8GB version is available for an outrageous price) and my dad doesn't really care about processing power and multiple cores, I was thinking maybe we should get the ChildPad for him xPP

    I would wait for the Nexus7. I have played with it and it is very nice. The price here in Germany is very reasonable. By the way, I love the greek islands. You're lucky, though the economy is not good the islands are lovely.

    Yeah I know, the economy is horrible right now.... But since we can still afford to buy tablets we are good :) And the islands are indeed beautiful but I'm so used to them that they I'm bored of going to greek islands every year -.-
    I'd prefer to live in Germany or France. I've been to the capitals of both countries and they're really great.
    About the nexus 7, I don't think it is ever gonna be available here, at least not directly by Google.
