Had it been a list of gadgets I wish to purchase, I would have said the Eink phone or dual screen 5 inch (LCD and Eink on each side). Such a device will replace my current smartphone and ereader (possibly even the tablet). Offcourse its not in the market yet, so, maybe next year around this time.

I'd love to have a 5" eink ereader with a flexible display the size of the Galaxy Player 5. I'd also want it to have a touch interface, WiFi, mSD, web browser, audio player, loud speakers, and access to Google Play. It would make a great ebook, audiobook, and net radio device.

Well Santa Claus came early this year, I already got my Kobo Glo so I don't think I'll be treating myself with anything else in the coming weeks.

I've just bought a Kobo Mini, I bough and iPhone 4S and an ASUS ultrabook last year, my desktop two years ago and an iPad on June, so I think none goes this year (Camera either, Panasonic TZ-10 two years ago...)

Hope you enjoy yours. I love mine! They just added (within the last few days) a search feature that searches across content "channels". If you haven't already, bookmark Roku Private Channels Directory. Not that there aren't enough "official" Roku channels to keep you busy, but it's always good to have more options!

Does an electric toothbrush (Braun Oral B) count as a gadget? That's the only one I can think of that I'll be getting anytime soon.
But you never know what might jump in front of me yelling "buy me, buy me!"...

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.
She has an iPod Touch. And a Nook Tablet with an N2A card. She wants the DSI XL as well. She doesn't even play games that much so it seems pointless, which is part of why I'm unsure she'll get it. When I asked her what she wanted for Christmas, that was all she mentioned, but I imagine I'll hear other things before then.

My daughters, 6 & 9, enjoy both their Nook Color + n2a and their DSi XL. The NC is much more versatile, but they wouldn't want to give up the DSi XL. I got it for them a couple years ago.

We have 2 Rokus. We love them. One for the girls room, one for the boys room. We borrow them when we want to.

We had a DS Lite that we've had for ages, but it broke, so it isn't like it would be a brand new thing to her. But she didn't use the DS Lite all that much, so I wonder how much she'd use the other.

Thanks for tip. I'm sure I'll love it.
Anything's gotta be better than using the Wii's remote for Netflix ... and Netflix is frankly all I use the Wii for.

I think it's the kobo arc for me because I want a tab smaller than my iPad and would like a new ereader. I am hoping to kill two birds with one stone😄
