T3 Readers: iPad 2 will be the 2011 Gadget of the Year
Apple's inevitable sequel will lap up honours, according to you
Last week’s T3 poll results are in and the Apple iPad 2 is in first place as the predicted winner of the 2011 Gadget of the Year award. With 38.41% of the votes it seems that you, our discerning readers, believe that Apple will continue its stylish winning streak next year.
One reader commented: “I would say either the iPad 2 or the iPhone 5! Apple will pull out all the stops with their new devices next year to bounce back from a bad launch of the iPhone 4!” It seemed that the majority of you agreed as the Apple iPhone 5 came in second place with 22.54% - only marginally less than the iPad 2 love.
Our third place position went to the hi-tech and extremely fashionable HTC Desire HD with a vote of 16.19%, which isn’t all that surprising with the recent success and hype surrounding its launch. It seems not that many of you have faith in the sensor-tech-aided add-on that Microsoft believes will change gaming, as the controversial Microsoft Kinect came in fourth place with 9.21% of the vote.
The PSP 2 came in fifth place with a minute 7.62%, but still managed to fend off support for the Nintendo 3DS, which came behind it in sixth place with just 6.03% of the votes. Apparently you think the future in tech doesn’t lie with handheld 3D gaming.
