10 cool gadgets we can't wait to get our hands on

They're not available here... yet

In the internet age it's much easier for far-eastern technology giants to tempt us with their latest goodies than it is for them to ship the blessed things to Blighty. Too often it's too bad: we Brits can read about the latest gadgets, but we have to cross at least one ocean to get them.

The coolest gadgets almost always debut overseas - usually in Asia. Some are mobile phones that double as music players or TVs. Others are supersmall yet powerful notebooks or handheld PCs. And some are just weird, like the world's most disturbing piggy bank.

We'll get them eventually, and we just can't wait.

In some cases you may not be totally shut out when it comes to procuring one. Though these devices aren't officially for sale in the UK, some are available from gray-market importers or on eBay. Just make sure that you can obtain a service plan to support what you buy, if appropriate.
