Coro, the most trusted tech expert for Latinos appeared on Maria Elvira Live on CNN Latino recently to talk about the tech gift ideas, gadgets that are trending, and the latest in cameras, tablets, smartphones, and shopping apps to make it all happen.
He showcased the Sony Cybershot QX10 Attachable Lens-Style Camera. This wireless lens works with your smart phone to deliver high quality images, and with 10x (times) the zoom of your cell phone’s built in camera, it enhances its ability to take high-resolution photos at any time and any place. Also, anyone can control this gadget with an app installed on the camera phone. It’s the perfect gift for the amateur photographer and videographer in your family, who will be able to document those memorable moments during the holidays.
Coro also introduced the audience to “Nabi”, a tablet designed specifically for kids, thinking of their safety online, their learning and of course, fun too. Your child can play games, and even do their homework with Nabi. This tablet and its built-in apps are perfect for your child, and will make him or her associate the use of technology with balance and responsibility.
In addition to cool tech gifts, Coro also talked about holiday shopping apps that can even help you save money by monitoring your “gifting” activities and by keeping you on budget, so you don’t go broke on the holidays. Two of these apps are Zoomingo and Shop-Your-Way.
With Zoomingo, you can find all the local deals from renowned stores, and in real-time. That way, you’ll have all your discounts (from your favorite stores and brands) in one place, making it easier for you to locate the latest holiday deals in your local stores.
And when stores meet apps, Shop-Your-Way is the result. This app works with your local stores, such as Sears, to ease your shopping experience, to the point where you can shop while outside the store and have them deliver the item(s) outside to your vehicle minutes later. You can shop in-store, online or from a mobile platform, your choice. It’s as easy as joining the community (for free) to win points, get exclusive offers and member-only deals.
If you have a very large family, and want to keep yourself within budget, you can use another type of app: The Christmas List. You can enter info on your family and your budget (such as, how many giftees and how much you have to spend on gifts) to keep track of each gift and each purchase (and remind you about the ones you haven’t yet bought gifts for). This app functions perfectly in both platforms, tablets and smartphones, and it will become your personal assistant this Christmas.
