The T3 Gadget Awards have been announced for this year, and Apple has done very well for itself winning five categories, with HTC, Samsung and Panasonic picking up two awards each as well.
The awards seek out the “most innovative, most functional, most visible and most stylish gadgets of the past 12 months”, and were decided on via some 750,000 votes from readers, combined with the opinions of a judging panel.
The iPad walked away with the coveted Gadget of the Year title, and also won Innovation of the Year. The iPhone scooped Commuter Gadget of the Year.
Apple’s success didn’t end there, however, as the MacBook Pro scored as Computer of the Year, and the company itself as Retailer of the Year.
Apple didn’t manage to grab the Tech Brand of the Year award, however, which went to HTC instead. HTC did a double also snagging the Phone of the Year for the HTC Desire. The iPhone wasn’t helped by the whole antennagate fracas with the fourth generation handset.
Other winners included Google Maps Navigation which was voted App of the Year, the Alienware M11x laptop was Gaming Gadget of the Year, and Spotify bagged New Media Service of the Year.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 won Camera of the Year, and Panasonic also took home the TV of the Year accolade for the Panasonic Viera TX-P50VT20B.
Samsung also did a double, winning Home Gadget of the Year with the Samsung NaviBot SR8845E, and the T3 Design Award for the Samsung UE55C9000 LCD TV (a very nice set indeed, if you can afford the five grand asking price).
