The annual awards for the tech magazine T3 have been announced, with Apple scooping no less than five awards – but failing to bag the coveted ‘Phone of the Year’ award, which went to our favourite handset, the HTC Desire.
Apple’s iPad picked up the headline-grabbing ‘Innovation of the Year’ and ‘Gadget of the Year’ awards, but Apple once again lost to the upstart HTC who scooped up the coveted ‘Tech Brand of the Year.’
Apple’s iPhone 4 won the ‘Commuter gadget of the year for its iPhone 4’ award – to be honest we would have thought something with a better battery life would be more deserving in that category – and the company also picked up gongs for ‘Retailer of the Year’ and ‘Computer of the Year’ for its Macbook Pro.
The astonishing Samsung 9000 series television won T3’s Design Award for the year, with Panasonic’s Viera TXP50 snaffling the Television of the Year title.
We’re not quite sure what a ‘Gadget Personality’ is, but it was won by Suzi Perry.
