Gadget Countdown 2012: And the winner is...
It's been a close call, excuse the pun, but there can only be one winner of AccountingWEB's Gadget Countdown 2012.
Run every year, resident tech-head and peripheral expert Nigel Harris has been busy bringing you 12 days of Christmas gadget goodies.
Somewhat unsurprisingly, Apple still lords it over the market, with the iPhone 4s coming up trumps as winner of this year's countdown.
While the iPhone 5 may be the latest smartphone issuing from the technology giant, the 4s with iOS6 seemed to strike a chord with AccountingWEB members and editors alike.
There's no doubt that there are many close contenders, such as the Samsung Galaxy S3, the iPhone 4s was lauded by Harris as the "ultimate Swiss army knife of gadgets".
"My iPhone even doubles as a spirit level and tape measure when doing DIY," he quipped, but added that many found it was in great need of a longer battery life.
