Tech Question: What is your next technology purchase?

You have seen my 2012 Gift Guide suggestions over the last week. Now I am going to ask what YOUR SUGGESTIONS might be?

What is your next technology purchase? What device, game, software, or hardware has you itching to buy? What technology would help you be more productive -- or just give you a chance to have a great time?

For me, I am looking at the new iPhone 5 as my next purchase. I am ready to upgrade from my iPhone 4 and pass it along to my wife, who has yet to own a smartphone. I think it is time she entered the modern world and I get the latest, greatest phone in the bargain. You can't really beat that. (LAUGH) I also want to buy a new LCD TV with at least a 46" screen. We are currently using a hand-me-down TV that was graciously offered to us, but it is projection HD monitor with fairly limited inputs and capabilities -- it doesn't' even have an HDMI port. So, that is also near the top of my list.

So, tell me, and the other TechIQ readers, what is next on your technology to-buy list? Share your thoughts, and comments below and let's see what neat ideas turn up. It might just change my own list.

For me it will be the Nexus 10.

I moved from iPhone 4S to Galaxy SIII 3 months ago and it was the best decision I ever made. Android 4.1+ and the play store has finally made the switch from Apple easy. I can do everything that I did on Apple and more with Android devices and most importantly I get to keep more of my hard earned money as I move forward.
