Consumer electronics: buy now or wait?

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, November 29, 2011

When it comes to the latest electronics and gadgets, should you buy now or wait?   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Buying a new smartphone, tablet or digital camera can be pretty tough.   Once you’ve decided on what you want, the question becomes when to buy.   A new service called Decide.com is designed to help you make that decision with no regrets.   Marketing VP Michael Paulson…

You come to Decide.com, you look for the product you’re looking to buy and we will tell you to buy or wait.  And we’ll tell you to buy when we see prices holding steady or going up and there’s not a new model coming out in the near future.  And we’ll advise that you  wait if we see a meaningful price drop about to happen or if we see a newer model of this product about to release.”

Decide.com is available on the Web and through a free app currently available for the iPhone or iPad.   The service makes money by linking to retailers where you can purchase.  You can find us with archives, interviews and more.
