The desire felt by some purchasers when a popular new gadget launches.

Much like regular envy, it includes overlooking flaws in the desired gadget, as well as a discounting of the similar capabilities of a gadget already owned.

It is manifested with the typical expressions of envy toward anyone possessing the gadget, regardless of need.
I just saw Tom playing with the new iPhone. I've got the old one, and I've got such gadget envy right now!
