We have only just entered the second part of the year and already I have heard people mention the 2010 Holiday Season. We are now in the summer and only care about our vacations, but let’s face it – Christmas will be with us soon and before you know you will be left wondering what you gifts you should buy.

However, help is at hand thanks to Robert S. Anthony, from PC World. He attended the recent Holiday Gift Guide Media Event in New York, where he and a number of journalists had a chance to see what gadgets will be hot this year. Some are already available to buy, but I would not consider purchasing yet, as you will lose at least 5 months of the warranty.

The first product is a Verbatim Wallet Drive; it is nice to see that this boring device has seen a little bit of a makeover. This 500GB hard drive will cost $130 once released in August.

The next gadget is a 14.1-megapixel camera from General Electric Power X5, and offers a 2.7 LCD display and 15x optical zoom. The retail price is a real shocker – just $180.

One of the coolest gadgets has to be the Oregon Scientific ATC9K All-Terrain Video Camera. Ok you will not need anything this robust when filming your kids opening their gifts on Christmas morning, but will come in handy once it snows and you take them out sledging. The camera costs $300 and for $70 extra you will be able to add a GPS module.
