PRLog - Dec. 2, 2011 - TUPELO, Miss. -- TUPELO – If you're looking to give some of the latest technology for Christmas this year, you can find something useful in just about every price range. Jeremy Bandre, president of Exceed Technologies in Columbus and Tupelo, says that some of the most enjoyable technology also can be the most practical. “In today's economy,” he said, “consumers are looking for something that helps them as well as keeps them entertained. This year, you can find plenty of gifts that fit that bill.”And while his list of favorites includes a 47-inch Vizio television and the iPhone 4S, he also likes some less expensive products, such as a cellphone tripod, that can fit in stockings as well as under the tree. "Price doesn't necessarily mean value," Bandre said. "It's all about what the technology can do for you." No matter what you're considering, he said, “do your homework before shopping.” He recommends www.cnet.com for reviews, pricing and product information. Here are some of Bandre's recommendations, with comments, for a high-tech Christmas 2011:
• A 47-inch Vizio LED-backlit LCD television (SV472XVT). With Internet apps built into the set, Bandre says this television provides “an amazing Internet experience” on TV.
• A Dell XPS 15z laptop computer with up to 8GB RAM. This reasonably priced laptop has a very elegant design and will fit the bill for college students or professionals on the go.
From $200 to $500
• The iPhone 4S, with its larger screen than previous versions and the Siri voice command. “Apple does it again,” Bandre says. “Apple has always been the industry leader for user-friendliness. The iPhone 4s just adds to the collection. The new iPhone is faster, sleeker and more amazing than ever.”
• The Asus Eepad tablet, with a 10.1-inch LED screen and an optional dock with full keyboard. This is the first big-name tablet to incorporate a docking station. Docking station provides USB connectivity along with a full qwerty keyboard. Bandre calls it a great netbook-tablet solution for the professional.
From $50 to $200
• The Kindle Fire, the 7-inch tablet considered a formidable challenger to the iPad. Bandre calls it “an outstanding value” for its $199 price tag.
• The Logitech Harmony 700 Universal remote, which supports more than 225,000 devices and can be programmed by computer.
• The DECT 6.0 phones, using a newly designed protocol for cordless phones. Among the advantages: They don't interfere with home or office wireless network, they provide clearer calls and they cost less than other phones. Manufacturers include AT&T, Vtech and Panasonic.
• Quikpod portable tripods for cell phones. The tripod weighs less than 2 ounces and provides stability for video calling, still shots and video. It's also compatible with numerous cell phone brands.
