With many toys and electronic devices that enhance a week’s vacation at sea, we choose 3.
Our charter professionals take a look back at their favorite gadgets for 2012.
FIRST – Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 ($470)
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
With battery life almost equal to the iPad, and a memory-card slot not found on Apple’s iconic tablet, the 10-inch, 16GB Galaxy Note offers capabilities that no other tablet currently offers.
Second, Nikon Coolpix S800c ($327)
What’s a Caribbean yacht charter vacation without a boatload of photos to share with family and friends? The 16 megapixel point-and-shoot camera can run Google’s Android operating system and all the apps that go with it, enabling users to edit an image, and quickly post it to Facebook, etc…
Third, Samsung Galaxy S III ($280)
Samsung Galaxy SIII S3
We’ll admit the Apple iPhone 5 has a better camera, and new features place it head and shoulders above previous iPhones. Still, our choice for the best smartphone in 2012 is the Galaxy S III . The Android-driven Galaxy has a bigger screen than the iPhone 5 and lots of features you can’t get on Apple ‘s smartphone. The sensor-based tools are great for social networking.
