Last week we asked you what’s the best and most significant gadget of 2012. Naturally, not every gadget released in the past year could be included, but unfortunately, I forgot to include an “Other” option in the poll, as pointed out by observant reader Alan Wade. To make up for it, after the poll’s results I will mention all the major suggestions made by all those who had no option to vote for. But first, let’s find out which gadget was voted best of 2012!
Out of 586 votes in total, less than 1% voted for the Playstation Vita, 1.5% voted for the Kindle Paperwhite, 2% voted for the Wii U, 3% voted for the Nokia Lumia 900, 5% voted for the Kindle Fire HD, 5.5% voted for the iPad mini, 6% voted for the “new” iPad, 10% voted for the iPhone 5, 11% voted for the Microsoft Surface, and the two winning gadgets, that received far more votes than any of the others were the Google Nexus 7 with 24% of the votes, and the Samsung Galaxy S III with a full 31% of the votes.
In the comments, readers mentioned the new iPod Nano, the Raspberry Pi, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, The Nokia Lumia 920, the HTC OneX, and even Curiosity’s landing on Mars.
Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.
Don’t forget to check out the poll’s best comment by Obed Cutaran, who won 150 points for his contribution!
This week’s poll question is: Have You Made A Tech-Related New Year Resolution This Year?
This week’s poll is not only about whether or not you’ve made a resolution, but which one or ones you’ve made. Last week, we shared some ideas for new-year resolutions, and today I want to find out if we’ve managed to inspire you, or if there’s a different tech-related new-year resolution you’ve chosen. Since I know you might have more than one resolution for the year (being ambitious is excellent), this week you can choose more than one answer in the poll. So what is 2013 going to look like for you?
Didn’t make a tech-related resolution? Tell us about other resolutions you’ve made. Don’t see yours on the list? We’d love to hear about it too!
