The best gadget of 2011, Period – Part 7

The downside to the flamboyant Android device is the lack of applications that could test and utilize the true potential of four cores nestled inside the chassis.

Furthermore, device can also be used as a full-fledged laptop. The optional dock available is worth spending every penny of $150. When attached to the dock, the tablet becomes fully functioning laptop, with even a mouse track-pad.

10. Sonos Play:3

You can control the Sonos Play: 3 single-speaker streaming-audio system from any iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, or Android smartphone using a free app. It offers good sound, its compact, elegant design cuts down on cord clutter, and it can stream Internet-based radio and audio services, plus your own digital music collection, from any Mac, PC, or NAS drive. Also, it’s simple to set up, particularly if you already own a Sonos system, and linked Sonos players (purchased separately) can cover up to 31 additional rooms.

The Play:3 has almost no stereo separation and doesn’t offer the detail and clarity of the step-up Play:5. Also, while it can wirelessly interact with other Sonos products, you’ll need a hard-wired connection or the $49 wireless Sonos Bridge accessory if it’s your only Sonos component.

While it doesn’t sound quite as good as the larger Play:5, the Sonos Play:3 delivers a superior streaming-audio experience that you can control from any iOS device or Android smartphone.
