Samsung Galaxys 2

The Samsung Galaxy S2 has beaten the iPhone 4 and a host of other mobiles to claim T3’s phone of the year award. It is the first time for three years that Apple or HTC have not won the category.

Talking about the handset, judges said: “Not content with pretty much owning internet search, Google has turned Android into a real threat to Apple’s dominance on both mobiles and tablets.” Gadget of the year went to the Microsoft Xbox Kinect. The console also picked up the gaming gadget of the year.

T3 Editor, Luke Peters, said: “The Kinect is not only an amazing gadget for today, it’s a mouth-watering technological prospect for tomorrow too.” Other winners included Apple’s iPad 2 (Tablet), Amazon’s Kindle (Commuter gadget) and the RIM BlackBerry Bold 9780 (word gadget).

Apple picked up three awards in total with Samsung also winning the TV of the year. Twitter was voted digital media service of the year while Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg picked up the gadget personality prize.
