Introducing “The Gadget Fan”!
From being expensive bricks to an affordable device to a must-have accessory, gadgets of all kinds have come a long way. Many parts of our lives are touched by these wonderful contraptions and we live with them and sleep with them – literally. What can explain the phenomenal rise of gadgets as an important part our lives? There could be multitude of reasons from improved technology to rising income levels, whatever the reasons be, we now accept that they are important part of our lives. Why not give gadgets an important place or the place they deserve?
Observing the trends and looking at the insatiable appetite of trak.in readers, we have launched a new blog called TheGadgetFan. The blog does exactly what it says. It talks, analyses and discusses about India-centric gadgets and everything about them.
The blog had a soft launch on 10.10.10 (October 10, 2010) and it now has 80+posts and it is brimming with rich content. The blog is collaborative effort of Trak.in and Sriram Vadlamani of Indianomics.
Could we have done it sooner or later? Absolutely not. This is the perfect time to give gadgets its due distinction as the consumption and user interest is on the verge of a explosion. 3G launch which has given the much needed fillip for gadgets is yet another reason for a special interest for gadgets.
Some of our research so far includes a comparison between Olivepad and Samsung Galaxy Tab, comparison of three home-grown tablets Binatone Home Surf, Wespro ePad, Infibeam Phi, 10 3G touch screen phones under 10K and right-sizing the tablet screen.
Join us for this exciting ride and drop-in your suggestions and feedback.
Note: The blog is still new and we are still in the process of sprucing it. If you would like to see something specific on the blog, do drop us a line!
