PC Advisor readers have nominated their favourite gadgets of the year, and have come up with a shortlist that we're now opening up to a public vote.

As part of our second annual Reader Awards Survey, we asked participants to nominate the item of consumer electronics they love most or that they would most love to own. We totted up the free-vote nominations and came up with a shortlist of 13. We've put together a poll that anyone can vote on throughout the coming week. The poll winner will be crowned the PC Advisor Gadget of the Year.

The PC Advisor Reader Awards Survey, from which the shortlist originates, was conducted over a 10-week period from September to the end of November. The survey asked readers about the technology products they own and their experiences of customer service and support for those products. This annual survey forms the basis of the PC Advisor Reader Awards, for which winners will be announced next month.

Our site features a complete list of nominees for both reader and editorial awards.
