And now here are we screaming Wait! from the top of our lungs. Don’t buy that device, it might be a mistake! Not now at least. You might argue that those devices have passed the test of time, but hold your horses, captain! Let us explain why despite all gadgets below being good on their own, waiting just a couple of weeks will guarantee you that you really have the greatest gadget there is and not something you’d fall out of love in weeks.
5 devices that you might want to buy, but shouldn't
1. Apple iPhone 4S
Yes, the mythical iPhone is all around you, but with the new iPhone expected to get unveiled on September 12th and come very soon after, you’d feel like you made a huge mistake. Why? The new iPhone is believed to become the biggest upgrade since the launch of the original in 2007. It is believed to feature a 4-inch Retina display, LTE connectivity, iOS 6 and a twist of Apple magic.
2. Google Nexus 7
Yes, the Google Nexus 7 is a steal. Yes, it has a great design. And yes, your conscience will keep on blaming you for rushing to buy it if Apple introduces a brand new 7.85-inch iPad mini. Why not just avoid that unhealthy inner collision and wait a couple of weeks until September 12th to see whether Apple is indeed launching that elusive smaller and affordable iPad. Then, you can still buy the Nexus 7, but get a feeling of relief as a bonus.
3. Samsung Galaxy Note
The Galaxy Note is a phablet, a device for those caring for every additional fraction of an inch of screen space. It’s huge, but it’s nearly a year old! Don’t get fooled by its recent arrival on T-Mobile - Samsung is bringing the new Galaxy Note II in just a week and it will probably have an even bigger screen and upgraded hardware. Wait for August 29th.
4. Nokia Lumia 900
If you want to try out Windows Phone enamoured with its cute Live Tiles, wait. The flagship Nokia Lumia 900 might be a few months old, but it’s not getting the new Windows Phone 8 and it’s got that single core processor that will soon look like an antique. September 5th will bring brand new Lumias, so stay tuned.
5. Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX
The Droid RAZR MAXX might have enchanted you with that huge battery, but you’d have to settle for a compromise - the current phone doesn’t have an HD screen, and a brand new one is coming on September 5th. You guessed our prescription right - patience.
