If you are planning on buying a new tablet, a 4K smart TV, a new phone, or some other new tech gadget this holiday season, chances are you’re not alone. Two-thirds of American adults plan on buying a tech gift this year, according to projections from the Consumer Technology Association. Luckily, many of the latest consumer tech products don’t have to break the bank. There are a number of popular gadgets available for less than $100 this holiday season.
Many popular tech products have become much more affordable over the past decade. Since 2008, the average price of a phone in the U.S. has fallen by more than 45%, and the price of a television by more than 83%, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Some of the most advanced tech products, including new smartphones, portable speakers, and virtual reality headsets, are now available in models running below $100.
