Now if you were out running wild and shopping like an animal this black Friday then you probably have notice that what kids are wanting and what’s being marketed to them this Christmas are electronics. Being a lover of tech and being someone who watches tech religiously I decided to let you in on what I think is the best christmas gift for a kid in 2012.
Now kids are wanting iPads and iPods and rightfully so, they are amazing peaces of technology. However they are also really expensive and maybe not the best idea for a child.
There are some great alternatives out there for our children. We know they want the ability to play music and video on a handheld device like an iPod or an iPad.
I believe the top gift for a kid in 2012 is a product called Ematic.
An Ematic is an Mp3 and video player for around $30-$40. That is a lot easier to swallow then say $600 for an iPad! They come in all different colors and sizes and appear to be a lot more durable then most mp3 players.
Take the time to check out an Ematic. I will bet your small child will love it! So stop going out there in the black friday jungle and check out the great deals that are online like this awesome Ematic.
Here are some specs to check out. Although keep in mind there are several different models to choose from.
4 GB Flash Memory, Expandable to 12 GB
The EM604 features 4 GB of on-board memory–enough room for 1,000 songs, 3,500 photos, or 4 hours of video.
You can expand the player’s capacity by adding a microSD card with a capacity of up to 8 GB. Swap out different cards with different content for a quick change.
Touchscreen control from the EM604′s brilliant QVGA screen makes for easy control and access to all your media.
Versatile Audio and Video Playback
The EM604 supports MP3, WMA, and WAV audio files, complete with display of ID3 tag track info. It’s also compatible with AVI, MP4, and FLV video formats (or use the included software to convert WMV, ASF, RM, RMVB, and other formats).
Built-in Still/Video Camera
Take pictures and record video with the built-in camera, complete with special video effects such as black and white, negative, or sepia. When hooked up to a computer via USB, it can be used as a webcam. Furthermore, you can connect your player to your TV and use it to watch movies, view photos, or listen to music (RCA cables not included).
When you’re in the mood for some live programming–your favorite morning show, the traffic report, evening news, etc.–flip on the FM radio. You also get the ability to record right off the radio, so you can save a song or piece for later reference/enjoyment.
Use the handy voice recorder to capture lectures, memos, meetings, or anything else that might merit a quick field recording.
