I think I'm going to wait for next year's improved front-lit e-ink screens. That's a brand-new tech, after all. Version 2.0 is bound to be better. I am very tempted by the iPhone 5, and I'm eligible... not sure, though.

I picked none. All of the items in the poll I've bought new in the last 18 months or so and shouldn't need to upgrade for a long while.

My next electronics purchase (for myself) will be either a camera or another lens, but it won't be this year.

I ordered a couple of iPads last week, does Halloween count as a holiday? I'm currently updating our Macs and iThings to Mountain Lion and iOS 6, so it's the right time to add a couple of tablets to the mix.

I don't buy electronics at Christmas.

I got myself a 4gen iPod Touch recently, got a good deal on a second hand one as people who have bought the iPod 5th gen or the new iPhone are selling. I've never had an iPod before and I'm very happy with it - it's very light and makes it easy to carry all of my music and podcasts around with me.

Although I got it for a good price, that's all the money I'm allowed to spend for the time being

Black Friday tends to have the lowest prices and deals. That's when I usually pull the trigger.

I chose "other" - I plan to use my Christmas bonus to buy a true macro lens for my DSLR. I believe that qualifies as a gadget of sorts, as it's a digital component complete with its own firmware.

I don't think we need anything. My daughter wants a Nintendo DSI XL for Christmas, but I haven't decided whether she'll get that, and it isn't on the list anyway. We are set for e-readers and tablets and phones though.

Yep; it's in the 'other' category. Since we're a reading forum, I only listed devices that can be used for ebooks and/or audiobooks.

Have you considered an iPod touch or Galaxy Player? There are tons of free and low cost games for these devices. Feeding handheld gaming devices is very expensive by comparison.

Not trying to talk you out of it. Just giving you something else to consider. I suggested the iPod touch to a few friends who were considering Nintendos for their kids. They went with the iPods and are glad they did; considering its versatility and low cost appetite.

It's my favorite "reading" device. I always have it with me in my pocket. In the words of that AmEx commercial - "don't leave home without it"

I am for sure getting an iPhone. And debating between a Kobo Glo or iPad mini. I have a full iPad I use at work and would like something small and light to read with at home to replace my Kindle Touch.
