For a digital camera that can withstand the elements, check out the Pentax Optio WS80, now on sale for $130 at Abe's of Maine. Enter the coupon code LOYALTY10 to make the price drop even lower to $120 plus free shipping.
This 10-megapixel point-and-shoot measures less than an inch thick and offers a 5X-optical-zoom lens (35mm to 175mm). The Optio WS80 first caught our eye with its waterproof frame, which can withstand submersion down to 5 feet underwater.
TomTom XXL 540S GPS Navigator, $150
We like the XXL 540S for its roomy 5-inch screen, which makes the on-screen directions easier to read. It features the same easy-to-use interface and menu system that most TomTom products have, and adds a database of 7 million points of interest with sensible directions from TomTom's IQ Routes.
DJ Hero Bundle for PlayStation 3, $80
Similar to Guitar Hero, this title allows wannabe musicians to perform songs for a digital audience. The DJ Hero control pad is a full-rotation, 360-degree platter with three buttons: two for scratching and a bigger one that you bop for samples. On the side is a cross-fader that switches between the two songs that you mash up on screen. The game has more than 100 songs to choose from, and you can play against a friend in DJ Battle mode.
HTC Hero Android Phone, $60
With activation of a new Sprint service plan, you can buy the HTC Hero Android phone at Amazon for a mere $60. If you were to go through Sprint directly, the phone would cost you $150; the unlocked version runs around $550.
The Hero was the first phone to feature Sense, HTC's popular user interface developed for Android and Windows Mobile. We also liked the phone's sturdy but attractive design and its 5-megapixel camera.
