Black Friday is almost here. Don't forget, even if you're shopping for others, this is probably the best time of year to take care of getting some tech goodies for yourself. And until then, you can sift through ZDNet’s ultimate guide to the sweetest deals and steals of 2010. Set the alarms on your smartphones, laptops and iPod speaker docks now. But before you rush out the door on that early Friday morning (or hit up the awesome pre-sale events even before Turkey Day), here are some quick tips that might make your shopping experience smoother, if even a little bit enjoyable:. ) If shopping online, check out multiple vendors to find the best price for that special something you have your eye on. A lot of retailers (including Kmart, Sears, Target , Walmart and Best Buy ) have pre-Black Friday sales. While these are never expected to be as good as Black Friday itself, they are definitely worth checking out. This is the year of the e-book reader and 3D. Expect big deals on the former thanks to price wars that started back in the summer time. Apple isn't known for really going all out on Black Friday (or during the holiday season in general). So unless you buy something on Black Friday itself, you can always save this stuff until after December 31 if you need to make room in your budget.
The new JBL WR2. 4 wireless over-ear headphones offer untethered listening freedom up to 100 feet (30 meters) away from the base station. These headphones should not be confused with Bluetooth headphones, which stream directly from smartphones. Instead, the base station must be connected to your home stereo via regular RCA audio cable, which is included. The base station then streams music using 2. 4 GHz wireless technology to the headphones. Since the headphones require power to receive a wireless audio signal, they must be re-charged by docking them back on the base station. JBL engineers have designed the WR2. 4 headphones with semi-closed back acoustics for naturally enhanced sound quality throughout their 18 Hz to 20 kHz sound range. 5 mm stereo to dual RCA audio cable for connecting your audio system to the transmitter base.
While Nokia has ventured ever-so rarely into touch screen phone territory (we're thinking of the Nokia 7710 , the first and last S90 smartphone, dating back to 2005), the iPhone craze seems to have gotten them on their way. This is Nokia's first S60 5th Edition phone-- 5th Edition is the touch screen version of S60, while 3rd Edition is the non-touch version used on all other current Nokia smartphones such as those in the N and E series. There is no 4th Edition since many high tech companies that market products in Asia avoid the number 4 because in Chinese the word for four sounds the same as the word for death. The flagship Nokia N97 will run 5th Edition as well (released mid-2009), which makes the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic even more interesting since it gives us a sample of what's to come in that top-of-the-line model and it offers an affordable... The Euro version has Euro 3G (900/2100MHz) rather than US 3G and lacks a US warranty. The Nokia 5800 is a GSM quad band unlocked world phone, and it's sold direct from Nokia's US website and from online retailers like Amazon and Dell. These include WiFi, GPS with Nokia Maps, a 3. 2 megapixel autofocus camera, Bluetooth and Nokia's usual bevy of built-in S60 smartphone applications.
