Amazon Kindle 2
Freescale i.MX31 Processor
ARM1136JF-S & ARM9 Processors
This upgraded version of the Kindle 2 has a 9.7” display, 3G wireless to download new books right from the device. It even has an auto-rotating screen that shifts from portrait to landscape view when you turn the device and a “read-to-me” feature where it will read out loud to you what you are viewing on the screen. All these capabilities and the battery life will last for days, which is perfect for long trips and plane rides. Having already hooked my Dad on the iPhone 3GS where he loves to listen to books on tape (or iTunes), he still misses the benefits of having an actual book in front of him. With this larger screen and voice features he gets the best of both worlds.
Garmin Nuvi 205
ST Cartesio Processor
While Garmin is one of the most popular navigational device brands, it’s the extra features on this one that make it so great. With JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, and a calculator. The coolest feature by far is the photo navigation, where you can download pictures from Garmin Connect Photos and the device will lead you to the location. This would be the perfect gift for my mom who loves to travel and has to hit every museum, monument, and historical landmarks that she can.

This would be the perfect addition to my brother’s ultimate bachelor pad.

This fabulous camera is six megapixels with 12x optical zoom and includes burst shooting capabilities. It can capture 60 to 1200 frames per seconds based on the resolution and features a new high speed CMOS sensor that helps take care of illumination. The best part is that it shoots 1920 x 1080 Full HD movies at 60fps as well. While this one will have sit on my wish list due to its high price point, the quality and capabilities of this camera makes captured memories come to life.
