Sony PRS-505 e-Book Reader


Buy Now and Price - Various prices on PriceGrabber


If you know somebody this Christmas who likes to while away the long nights with a good book and a glass of port, then they probably don't do family get togethers at Christmas and you shouldn't buy them presents.


But if you know an avid book enthusiast, they will really love this sleek ebook unit from Sony.




The stylish one piece aluminum body with that oh-so-crisp e-ink screen makes for a joy to read in bed or on the go. Expandable memory through SD card and memory stick duo means this reader can be a veritable encyclopedia galactica. Throw in audiobook playback and we have a Christmas winner!


However, Sony pricing means that little Jimmy and Susie should hope mummy and daddy love them enough!


HTC's Hero Android Phone


Buy Now and Price - $579.99


The obsession with having the latest and greatest technology means constantly upgrading your phone to keep up with the cool kids. Make no mistake; this Christmas heralds the coming of the age of the Google phone! In 2010 Google will officially take over the world, so you best be ready with an Android phone!




Touch screen and a multitude of sensors means this phone responds to your every need. With integration into most social apps, you can wish your friends merry Xmas on Twitter and upload those embarrassing holiday sweater photos to Facebook.


There are hundreds of reasons to get this phone for yourself or crimbo, buy your wife/girlfriend/mistress one! Hell, buy the dog one! (just don't be mad when he has more friends on Facebook than you)


Sony NWZ-A828 Walkman MP3 Player


Buy Now and Price - Unlisted


Everyone likes to ignore people on public transport and Christmas is no exception. The holidays bring out the freaks. What better way to ignore your disgusting fellow commuters than with a brand new shiny wireless MP3 player from Sony!




Bluetooth means you get a nifty set of comfortable over the ear headphones, with built in controls. So you can stash the lightweight player in a bag or pocket and not get yourself tangled in any pesky wires.


The NWZ-A828 Walkman is commonly available in 4, 8 and 16GB flavours for expected Sony prices, but hey; you are worth it! Also, it plays videos. Fancy that!


That about wraps it up from me. Just remember, it's better to give than receive. But make sure you give a little to yourself this Christmas, too!
