Whether you like it or not, the iPad has paved the way for an entirely new form of computing. Now with the Galaxy Tab, plus a heap of cheaper resistive-touchscreen tablets hitting the market, the way we use these devices has completely changed. But are they better than traditional computers? That's one of the questions the inaugural 2010 Gizmodo Gadget Awards hopes to find out.
For the next two weeks we're calling for nominations for the best gadgets of the year over five categories: Mobiles, Cameras, TVs, Computers and Apps. Tell us your favourites, and then stay tuned for the voting to begin. Once the winner from each category has been determined, they'll battle it out for the crown of "Gizmodo Gadget of the Year".
With all the great gadget releases this year, it's going to be a tough competition to decide. So help us out by nominating your favourite gadgets of the year in the comments below.
