T3 Gadget Awards: Nexus 7 Wins Top Honour
The leading innovators in the world of technology have been honoured for their achievements at the T3 Gadget Awards 2012.
ASUS were the big winners of the night at London's Old Billingsgate, scooping no fewer than five accolades.
These included Gadget Of The Year for the Google Nexus 7 by ASUS, which was also named Tablet Of The Year.
The awards recognise and honour the gadgets, software and personalities which have intrigued, inspired and wowed the world over the past 12 months.
As previously announced, Lord Sugar, the evening's guest of honour, was given the Outstanding Contribution To Technology Award.
Sky Go, which allows Sky customers to watch live television anywhere in the UK and Ireland on selected Android smartphones, iPhone, iPad, laptop or Xbox 360, won Digital Media Service Of The Year.
Despite being nominated in nine and 10 categories respectively, Apple and Samsung were triumphant in only one category each.
Samsung were victorious in the most hotly-contested category of the evening, Phone Of The Year, with their Galaxy S3 beating the iPhone 4S.
However, the 4S won Apple's sole award of the evening for Work Gadget Of The Year.
Alongside Google and ASUS, the only other multiple winners on the evening were Amazon - for Retailer Of The Year and Commuter Gadget Of The Year, for the Kindle 4.
Sky News was a media partner for the event and also the sponsor of the Tablet Of The Year category, and technology presenter Martin Stanford was one of the judges.
T3 Editor Luke Peters said: "The awards were another astounding success. This year saw more closely contested categories than ever, with our judges deliberating in great depth to decide the eventual winners.
"The public vote also played a crucial role.
"The tech industry has never been more exciting and the multitude of winning brands demonstrate how much quality buying choice there is now."
