The Apple iPad Mini and HTC One smartphone just proved to be two of the most valuable gadgets of today. These two mobile devices just bagged the two most coveted titles at the recently-announced T3 Gadget Awards. HTC One got the “Gadget of the Year” award while the Apple iPad Mini got the “Best Tablet” Award. Aside from the “Gadget of the Year” award, the HTC One also got other titles to further boost its value in the mobile phone industry. The Apple iPad Mini also proved that it can still kick some latest gadgets despite of its aging.
HTC One Still a Valuable Winner Despite Company’s First Ever Loss
The HTC One also got two more awards aside from the “Gadget of the Year” award which is the most important title of the T3 Gadget Awards. It also bagged the “Phone of the Year” title and the “T3 Design” award. HTC did a really great job in designing and crafting of the HTC One smartphone. However, the company had their first ever loss in sales. Shockingly, HTC reported that their market share for smartphones even declined by 50 percent in just a span of 12 months. If this trend will continue for HTC, we might never see another amazing smartphone from them in the future.
Apple iPad Mini Still Rocks Despite Aging and Outdated Display
The Apple’s iPad Mini has been out there for a year now. A lot of tech rivals already launched their new flagship tablets that already beat the iPad Mini in terms of specs and other factors. However, T3 Magazine still chose the smaller version of the legendary iPad primarily because of its amazing design. The award could have been given to the revolutionary Sony Xperia Tablet Z but people just could not move on with the iPad Mini’s stunning appearance and design. Despite the release of different tablets out there with high definition displays and more powerful memory and chips, the iPad Mini is still a force to reckon on the tablet arena.
Other Important Titles Given at the T3 Gadget Awards
Aside from Apple iPad Mini and HTC One, other winners were also announced for the T3 Gadget Awards. Google Glass bagged the “Innovation of the Year” award with its revolutionary design and concept of augmented reality. On the other hand, Samsung Electronics got the “Tech Brand of the Year” title. Samsung is really a winner not just at the T3 Gadget Awards but also in the market as the South-Korean tech giant had skyrocketed profits all around the year.
