Android Holiday Gift Guide 2012 [Part 1]

Wondering what to get the Android lover in your life something for Christmas? Here’s our list (part 1) of fun and cool gadgets that they will no doubt enjoy! Who can resist a cute little Andru “Chill” charger to put in a stocking or even a beast like the Nexus 4? Check out our list below!

Andru Charger



The Andru charger is just like any other charger with the only exception being that it is Android themed and comes in a few different colors. The above image is the Andru charger in its “chill” color. There is a Andru “Dark” charger and the standard Android green as well. One of the benefits of the Andru charger is that it has very low standby power and Level V efficiency. Another benefit of the Andru charger is that it can charger any smartphone with a micro USB charger slot.

This little fella will cost interested customers $25. While the price may sound a bit steep, why not spend a little money on a high quality charger instead of a low quality cheap universal charger?

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Smart Dock

 The Samsung Galaxy Note II Smart Dock takes advantage of the device’s crazy-fast 1.6GHz quad-core CPU. This smart dock will allow you to connect the device to an HD monitor, external storage device, and even a USB keyboard and mouse. Crazy isn’t it? Those who have been itching to get their hands on Samsung’s Galaxy Note II probably already have the device. The Smart Dock will set you back a good $99 (plus tax & shipping) but is definitely well worth it if the user is on the go a lot and just needs to hook up his/her device for a email or to edit a document.

Keep in mind that this Smart Dock does require a Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which is priced at $299 on-contract and a good $700 off-contract.

Google Nexus 4


Sure the Nexus 4 is constantly listed as “Sold Out.” If it’s possible to get your hands on one though, the Android lover in your life will love you forever. Well, at least until there is a successor to the Nexus 4 anyway. On the Google Play Store the device is currently sold out. If you don’t mind spending more than what the Play Store asks for, you can grab the device off of e-Bay or third-party retailers on Amazon. If you don’t mind getting yourself in a two-year pact with T-Mobile, interested customers could probably snag one from there as well. Albeit, they could be listed as “Sold Out” at any moment.

The Nexus 4 is the perfect device for Android lovers. The device comes packed with the latest version of stock Android (Android 4.2 Jelly Bean), wireless charging, a 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 display, a 8-megapixel rear-facing shooter, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter, NFC and HSPA+ connectivity.

These are no doubt some of the most fun gadgets you can get for the Android lover. Albeit some may be a bit on the pricey side, these are just a few gifts that an Android lover could not deny.
