There can hardly be a better authority on this year’s tech choices for Christmas than The Gadget Show’s Jon Bentley. In recent weeks it has become clear that Tablets are going to be the genuine gift big hitter, but with so many on the market, catering for so many different needs, choosing the right one could be quite a challenge.

New research commissioned by technology retailer Argos, amongst over 2,000 ten to eighty year olds, sought to take the tablet temperature of the nation and found that 44 per cent of us enjoy using technology more than we used to, with 41 per cent (19 million) people aged 16 or over planning on buying tablets as gifts or for their own personal use this year.

It also seems 2014 could be the year for getting more tech savvy as one in 12 plan to make a concerted effort to try out new technology next year.

So what’s on your shopping list as Christmas approaches? Are tablets top of your children’s Christmas wish lists but you’re about how educational or even how robust they are? Perhaps you’d like a tablet specifically for watching movies or listening to music but don’t know what specifications you need?  Not sure of the latest techcessories?
