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.
