2014 has been a great year for tech products -- heck, every year since 2000 has. Plenty of electronics, including smartphones and entertainment systems, will be right at home under the tree. There are lots of gadgets that you can have this Xmas, but what about the ones you can't have?
1. The iWatch
One of the most anticipated gadgets ever won't be out in time for the holidays. You will have to wait until next year to gift the iWatch, which can cost as high as $5,000. It looks like the Apple smartwatch will go on sale in Spring 2015.
2. Prynt Smartphone Case
Prynt has made headlines for it's intuitive design and reasonable $99 price. A must-have for Polaroid nostalgists, this gadget breathes new life into the realm of instant photography. The release date hasn't been specified, but the CEO has announced Prynt will be "made available via a Kickstarter early next year."
Navdy has created a buzz by describing itself as safer than checking your phone (when driving). The device creates a dash-display which shows you (amongst other things) directions or text-messages sent from your smartphone. However, the device will only be compatible in states where "hands-free texting" is permitted. Navdy also touts an early 2015 release date.
4. Google Glass
Social media is amuck with people wearing Google Glass. But the much hyped product will not go on sale for the general public until next year.
5. Google Smartwatch
Although the Moto 360 smartwatch (running Google's Android Wear) will be here for Xmas, the much-rumored Google Smartwatch will not. Google filed a patent in 2013 for a smartwatch, but the earliest we can expect the device would be 2015.
Have a techie Christmas!
