In a closely fought battle with Gizmodo’s Jason Chen, who this year famously surfaced the Apple iPhone 4 ahead of launch, Suzi, who is also an avid tweeter @suziperry, was awarded the Personality of the Year title by the T3 readers whose votes split a tied decision by the award judges.
The former face of MotoGP, Suzi’s can-do attitude and interest in all things tech have helped make The Gadget Show a powerful brand in UK electronics with the Gadget Show Live and Gadget Show magazine both landing in the last 12 months.
As a likeable and knowledgeable host of the popular channel Five broadcast, Suzi has helped make technology and the gadget industry accessible to a huge viewership.
On Suzi's receiving the award for Gadget Personality of the Year, T3.com Editor, Kieran Alger said: “She’s the main reason thousands of people tune in to watch a TV programme about gadgets.”
