Battle of the gadget blogs

The New York Times is staking a claim in the world of electrogadget blogs with Gadgetwise.

Now about to wrap up its first month in business, the site is going head-to-head with more established blogs like Engadget and Gizmodo.

How will the Times fare in the gadget-blog wars? The site has five bloggers devoted to it, but as the Blog Herald points out those five aren’t posting as prolifically as Engadget’s and Gizmodo’s bloggers. The two established blogs each put up more than 200 posts per week, while Gadgetwise is averaging 26.8 posts per week. Still, it’s interesting that a mainstream publication is willing to devote so much talent to a new blog. It could be a portent of things to come.
