We mentioned in July that RIM asked users via Twitter to vote for the BlackBerry Bold 9700 in the T3 Gadget Awards. While the BlackBerry Bold 9700 managed to make it in as one of the 3 finalists in both the Phone of the Year and Work Gadget of the Year categories they did not take the award.
The HTC Desire managed to take the title as T3 Phone of the Year but the real oddball result was that the 3 Mobile Mi-Fi won Work Gadget of the Year. Seriously?
All things considered the other finalists were the iPhone 4 (wildcard entry), Macbook Pro, Livescribe Pen, and the BlackBerry Bold 9700 so we are not talking about hardcore business tools. It is just kind of shocking that what I consider the most popular business phone did not win the category.
Odd results but I guess since it is a user vote based award we didn’t get enough of a response to back up the 9700. What do you think?
