Sources predict that spending on consumer electronics will rise to an astounding $2.3 Billion (up from $1.6 Billion in 2012). When it comes down to Mother’s Day gifts this year, most moms agree that any gift that makes their day-to-day lives easier IS the way to go! On DivasandDorks.com, we’ve compiled a complete tech guide of Mother’s Day gifts from smartphones, tablets and accessories but I wanted to share my TOP 3 MOTHER’S DAY gifts AND where you can buy them for a huge percentage off online today.
Nokia Lumia 920: If you’re ready to bring mom into the new millennium and rid her of her old flip phone, then the Nokia Lumia 920 exclusively with AT&T is the way to go. My grandmother and mother can easily get confused with the options and menus that the iPhone and Samsung phones have and with the ease of having “live” tiles that keep them updated with social media, emails and more from the home screen – it makes their connectivity easier than before. Plus with cool features like wireless charging and bright colors like cyan, red and yellow – no wonder this was Engadget’s 2012 Reader’s Choice Smartphone of the Year.
Retails for: $449.99 OR $99.99 w/ two year contract
Mophie Juice Pack Battery Case: Wouldn’t you like to give mom the ultimate gift of power and protection on the go? This rechargeable smartphone case doubles as a battery pack. Turn on the case when your battery runs low to stay fully charged through the late nights. From the busy day filled with meetings and presentations to the day off filled with errands and friends. The juice pack air ensures that mom has more than enough power packed into a streamlined, protective case so she’s ready to take on the day.
Retails for: $79.95
Samsung Galaxy Camera: As a premiere Android powered point-and-shoot camera with the capabilities of instant social media sharing, this “smart camera” is amazing. It boasts a 16-megapixel sensor, a 21x optical zoom, 3G/4G connectivity, WiFi, GPS, a 4.8-inch touchscreen display, all powered by a Quad Core CPU running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Although this camera is powered by Android, it’s far from a smartphone camera. With options to shoot in Auto, Smart or Expert Mode, the Samsung Galaxy camera gives every photographer the ability to capture great photos regardless of skill set. Best feature for mother’s day? Best Face, which takes a quick burst of five images and then lets you select the best facial expressions of the people pictured, before merging them all into one photo. So mom, say goodbye to those awkward family photos with the Samsung Galaxy Camera.
