Amazon Kindle 3 is PC Advisor's Gadget of the Year

PC Advisor Awards 2011 winners announced

The Amazon Kindle 3 has won the PC Advisor Awards 2011 reader award for Gadget of the Year - voted for by the readers of PC Advisor.

Not the foregone conclusion we might have assumed, the Amazon Kindle 3 beat the Apple iPad into second place by 80 votes to take the coveted Gadget of the Year crown. With its sleek profile, scant 241g weight, high-contrast 6in greyscale display and built-in Wi-Fi, plus cut-price book deals, it proved a tempting £111 (or £152 for the 3G version) package.

Runners up in the Gadget of the Year poll were Apple iPad, Apple iPhone 4, BlackBerry Bold, Dell Streak, HTC Desire, Huawei MiFi 3G hotspot, Humax PVR, Microsoft Kinect, Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Sony Reader, Sony PS3 Slim.
