T3 Gadget Awards: Shock winners announced

Don't be too surprised; you voted them in...

The readers voted in their thousands, the gongs have been given out and the winners are now revelling in their success. But it wasn’t all as expected; the 19 categories in the T3 Gadget Awards 2010 have thrown up a few shock results.


T3 Gadget Awards 2010: The winners

- See this year's winners in all their glory

First up we have the Gaming Gadget of the Year category, which has turned up a surprising, somewhat muted contender as the outright winner. Despite this year being the one in which Microsoft unveiled its potential game changer Xbox Kinect, and what with Apple seeing huge continued success with the thriving App Store gaming library, our winner was the unassuming but hugely capable Alienware M11x. As far as you, the readers, are concerned, the M11x is the best gaming gadget on the planet - your support has helped it see of some stiff competition. Who saw that one coming? The folks at Alienware, presumably.


Next is the Music Gadget of the Year, which has, in the past, been a category dominated by Apple. This year was really no different, and yet our winner – the Cambridge Audio DACMagic – has come out of nowhere to smash both the iPod Touch and the Sony Walkman A845 (among many others) to take the prize. The upsampling box of tricks takes your music and pushes it through a wall of audio sheen, bringint the best from your tunes.

Lastly we have the Green Gadget of the Year award, which has been scooped up by the most unassuming product in the entire show. The One Click Intelliplug, which turns your kit off of standby when it’s not being used, has fended off competition from water-saving kettles and solar-powered radios, phones and satnavs to be crowned king of the eco brigade in 2010.

Who’ll be next year’s surprise winners? You’ll have to keep it locked to T3 to find out. In the mean time, tell us what you think of the T3 Gadget Awards Winners and losers on the T3 Twitter feed.
