The Asian Civilisation Museum was the venue for the presentation of this years’ annual CNET Asia Readers’ Choice 2010/11 Awards. The media and representatives from major electronic manufactures were invited.
CNET Asia (www.cnetasia.com ) is a popular site for people who want to find out more the latest gadgets and electronic equipment. It was taken over in 2008 by CBS Corporation and is now under the CBS Interactive division.
A set of 167 products in 19 categories were selected by the CNET Asia editors based on overall reader popularity and feedback as well as performance based on CNET Asia lab tests. The awards were then given in Bronze, Silver and Gold according to the number of votes.
As might be expected, Apple phone 4 was a Gold Winner in the ‘Best-Looking Phone’ and also hit the top spot for ‘Best Performance Smartphone’. Nokia N8 was close behind in both those categories with 2 Silvers.
Gold for ‘Best Compact Cameras’ went to Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX9 with the Nikon Coli S8100 winning the Silver and Panasonic Lummox DMC-TZ10 picking up the Bronze. Apple took top spots in all the Notebook categories while Sony, Samsung and LG shared most of the awards in the TV categories.
