Father’s Day is the third Sunday in June and there’s no better way to show Dad that you appreciate him than by giving him a gift he can actually use — and likes. Whether you want to get Dad a gadget that will enhance his productivity at work, help him relax during his off-hours or enable him to spend quality time at home with the kids, we’ve got you covered. From the hottest new smartphone and tablet to a huge table PC that has its own suite of games, we’ve rounded up the best Father’s Day gadget gifts for 2013.
If Dad prefers using a stylus to typing but needs a light device to haul to and from work, Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 is a great pick. The thin-and-light tablet is ideal for one-handed use, and Samsung has built pen support into many areas of the user interface, allowing him to take handwritten notes, sketch out ideas or scribble down responses to his boss's email. He can even use the Galaxy Note 8 outdoors, since its display is plenty bright, and a WatchOn feature lets Dad control his favorite shows on the TV using the Note 8's IR port.
