Five for the weekend: FIFA 12 Ultimate Edition, carbon VAIO laptops and more!

It’s the weekend once again, and with lots of new announcements over the past week we’ve been sifting through the very best to find you the gadgets worth buying and the toys worth waiting for. Read on to find out more.

FIFA 12 Ultimate Edition You won’t be able to get your hands on FIFA 12 Ultimate Edition this weekend, but it’s still worth putting your name down as soon as possible for pre-order, as you’ll get some bonus features and money off when pre-ordered from Game.

Nokia X7 If you’re smartphone shopping this weekend, it could well be worth checking out the new Nokia X7. It lacks the firepower to trouble the very best smartphones, but it is likely to be affordable, packs in a decent range of features and features very distinctive styling.

Sony Ericsson Neo A mid-range Android smartphone, the Sony Ericsson Neo actually has a lot to offer for the money. Sure, it’s not quite as sexy as the Sony Ericsson Arc, but it packs in similar processing, the same operating system and an even sharper touchscreen display. If price is a factor, it’s well worth a look.

Olympus PEN E-P3 Another gadget that’s definitely worth waiting for, the PEN E-P3 isn’t on sale yet, but it offers one of the most stylish and high quality designs we’ve seen yet on a mainstream camera. There’s a range of different lenses available to suit any conditions, and it’s the perfect choice if you’re stepping up from a regular compact camera.

Sony VAIO Z Available from the end of July, if you’re in the market for a new laptop then Sony’s VAIO Z series is definitely worth waiting for. It’ll be pricey – as with previous versions – but nothing comes close to the Z when it comes to cutting-edge features in a tiny lightweight design. If you want to work on the move, it’s the laptop of choice.
