This week we’re introducing a brand new design for our tens of thousands of product pages here on gdgt, and I have to admit, it’s one of the most beautiful projects we’ve yet undertaken.
The first thing you’ll notice is, of course, an even bigger, more stunning product image. (Great product photography is sorta one of our things around here.) We’ve also made it even easier to write a review of your device — and just wait until you do write a review, because it’s pretty slick.
We’ve also brought back shopping to gdgt! We’re doing everything through one of our favorite electronics retailers — a little company you may have heard of called Amazon — but coming pretty soon you’ll be seeing a lot more vendors. We’ve also added some handy shortcuts at the bottom of the page to kick off product comparisons, and find other similar products by the same company. (Apple’s other great tablets picks are pretty great — scroll to the bottom here.)
And, last, but certainly not least, we have our awesome criteria-based product reviews, now upgraded with even easier to read graphs and criteria review data from critics, too.
Researching, discovering, and buying products is a process that’s at worst pretty painful, and at best something of a chore. The ways we help lift that experience into something simple, easy, even fun, is something our users have told us they’ve always loved about gdgt, and it’s something that deserves a lot more of our attention — and yours too, we hope!
So what are you waiting for, go check it out!
