LONDON, January 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

This year's T3 Gadget Awards had an overwhelming winner, manufacturer Asus.
The readers of T3 magazine cast over half a million votes for their favourite
pieces of technology, services and people and it was certainly Asus' night.
The Taiwanese company scooped five awards in total including Tech Brand of the
Year and Tablet of the Year for their Google Nexus 7.

A sell-out sensation, the Google Nexus 7 incorporates Android's Jelly Bean
software in a pocket-sized package. Powerful, yet lightweight, this slender
tablet has a 1.2 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities and a vast
amount of standby time - 300 hours.

The ceremony didn't just honour gadgets, Carphone Warehouse founder; Charles
Dunstone presented the prestigious Outstanding Contribution to Technology
award to Alan Sugar. Although a business magnate who's been in the technology
industry for over 40 years, Sugar rose to notoriety on BBC's "The Apprentice".
The entrepreneur said he's always been a tech geek, apparent in the catalogue
of products he's been behind, from the first satellite dishes to his latest
venture in TV set top boxes, YouView.

Speaking at the event, the editor of T3 magazine, Luke Peters said that
there's never been a more exciting time for the technology industry. He stated
that not only is there a fantastic range of products out there, but the
standard of them is very high. With such a huge range of tech available,
multiple different ways to access the internet and so many things to do and
see online, it's easy to feel overcome. A report released states that 1 in 3
of us feels completely overwhelmed by technology . Those surveyed said they
frequently felt that they weren't managing their time online as well as they
would have liked. An article on Help and Support at Carphone Warehouse has a
simple breakdown of how many megabytes are consumed by typical things on your
phone , like browsing websites and reading maps. This way you can ensure your
mobile bills and your time is managed well.
