Get a cheap ass laptop unless you're doing heavy work on the go all the time. If you're a businessman who is always on the move, bringing your work with you then you could invest in a better laptop. Otherwise, there's no real point.
For cameras, there's no debate. Canon on Nikon. End of story.
For phones, everyone and their mother has an opinion, but the main players are:
Samsung Galaxy S3
Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Google/LG Nexus 4
HTC 1X (Android)
HTC 8X (Windows 8)
Nokia Lumia 920
Look into what each operating system (iOS, Android, Windows 8) offers, and then go to a store and actually physically hold each phone and see how you like it.
Blackberry at the moment is outdated as frack, so you'll have to wait for BB10 to drop and see how those phones are. Anybody suggesting you get a blackberry right now is delusional or just way too attached to their physical keyboard. BB10 will eventually have phones with physical keyboards, but not when it first releases. The first BB10 phone will be a touchscreen.
