Gadget lovers may be aware of T3 magazine, a glossy UK publication that celebrates consumer electronics. Every year the magazine asks readers to vote on the best gadgets of the year in various categories, and the winners have just been announced.
“Gadget of the Year” goes to the 32GB Apple iPod Touch. The judges write: “Fresh from a number one showing in our Hot 100, the Touch beats off all comers to be crowned 2008’s Gadget of the Year, thanks to sterling music features, plus web and email gubbins.”
“Why, with much finer audio quality and twice the storage, not to mention no camera of dubious merit or inflated monthly fee, you could even say it’s better than the iPhone. In fact… you have” it continues.
The Apple iPod touch also won for “Best Music Gadget,” while the Apple iPhone won “Commuter Gadget of the Year.”
