The world celebrates the biggest technology awards of the year 2011 – “The Oscars of the gadget world.” Every leading person to leading technology is nominated for an award. Apple and Android are having a fist fight to be number one, while Lady Gaga and Stephen Fry are ready to battle it out for the next ‘Tech Personality of the Year’ as T3 reveals its 2011 Gadget Awards today.
As of now, Apple is in the lead with its ever necessary iPad 2 and its iPhone 5 to back it up. But on the the other end we have Android which has performed far better than expected and is at its heels running close to Apple.
All eyes are on the newest category added to the scene, ‘Tablet of the Year’ and that’s where the question arises – “Is anyone bold enough to stand against the all efficient iPad?” And for the much awaited ‘Tech Personality of the Year ‘ we have Lady Gaga and Dr Dre, Jamie Oliver and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, going against former winners Stephen Fry and The Gadget Show’s Suzi Perry.
According to Editor of T3.com – Kieran Alger,
“These are the world’s biggest gadget awards and this year promises to be the most fiercely fought contest yet. Apple’s dominance faces a serious challenge, particularly in the smartphone and tablet markets where other big brands have been bringing out better and better products to take on the might of the iPad and the iPhone.”
