I'm somewhat surprised to say it was my Lumia 920 - despite the windows phone doom and gloom I really like it.

Lots of new gadgets this year. But the best is my HTC One.

For me next year is probably going to be the year of the smart watch.

Probably the S4, very versatile, fast, and quite robust.

The paperwhite I got for Christmas last year, that's still fantastic. I haven't wanted to read a paper book since I got it, though I did try one and found it annoying.

zhuyan: For me it has to be the new Macbook Pro with Retina Display - stunning screen, faster processor and thinner/lighter design/build

Look forward to the year of 2014 bringing more interesting and helpful gadgets to our lives! 


Hmm.

A toss up between my 27" i7 iMac or my Kindle Paperwhite.

Probably the Kindle.

Kindle is better for reading, no competition at all. It's lighter, easier to see in bright light, can go very dim for nighttime reading, uses very little battery (just the light and page turns). I got one after I went to Samoa with my fiance, I ran out of books after a few days and tried to read on my tablet. The reflections in the tropics were awful, wifi was too slow to download more books, it was heavy, needed charging, etc. I bought a kindle as soon as I got back and have used it ever since. I got my Mum one for her birthday as well, she loves it.
