Believe it or not, we’re just getting started when it comes to the Christmas shopping season. This is a huge event for the shopping industry, but it’s also a time where the costumer can get some pretty wicked discounts. Today I’d like to bring up the discussion of what you think is the hottest gadget this year. There have been a wide variety of new releases in a wide variety of categories including cellphones, HD Pocket Cameras, GPS, and much more. Which gadget do you think is going to be the most popular for Christmas?

In my mind, one of the best devices this year is the Kodak Zi8, which I’m hoping will be in my stocking for Christmas. This nifty little camcorder is one of the more advanced pocket cams on the market right now. Allowing for up to 1080p recording and the ability to plug in an external microphone, there’s no doubt in my mind that this camera will be a hot seller during the upcoming shopping season.

There are plenty of other interesting new products that came out this year. The Motorola Droid, the Palm Pre, and of course, the iPhone have been real competitors when it comes to smart phones. Although the iPhone is without a doubt the most popular of the three, it has been proven with these new releases that there is still some fight left in these companies.

There will be plenty of deals and savings throughout the upcoming weeks. Since companies are fighting for every last dollar they can get, you’ll probably notice a sharp decrease on some of the most popular items. Definitely keep an eye out on Tagjag and Coupons.lockergnome.com.

With that said, what gadgets do you think will be the first off the shelves?
