Chumby Classic

The Chumby Classic isn’t our favourite gadget of 2010. To begin with, its chunky shape and squishy leather casing make it feel like a Fisher Price toy: My First Web 2.0 Widget Device, perhaps.

3 Skypephone S2

As the credit crunch continues to bite, free calls have never looked so attractive – and neither has 3’s Skypephone.

Somebody at Apple obviously hates the phrase “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” because it has completely redesigned its best-selling iPod, the iPod nano, yet again.
