HWM and HardwareZone.com Honour the Best in Technology

HWM, Singapore’s leading tech magazine and HardwareZone.com,
Singapore’s No.1 technology online portal, paid tribute to 37 companies
across 60 categories at the much-awaited HWM+HardwareZone.com
Tech Awards
. The Awards ceremony was held at Sheraton Towers on 3
February 2010. Radio personality Cheryl Miles and Tech Writer Sutlej
Soin co-hosted the event.

Thirty-two Editor’s Choice and 28 Reader’s Choice awards were
handed out in categories ranging from computers, consumer electronics,
communications and digital entertainment. These awards honour industry
players who have introduced products of exceptional quality, innovation
and performance released between December 2008 and November 2009.

Vijay Anand, Editor of HardwareZone.com, said: “The
HWM+HardwareZone.com Tech Awards 2010 is the only such event in the
region where tech products and services are honoured with the highest
accolade that the two publications can offer. It’s simply to celebrate
the massive amount of innovation that has gone into these companies’
products and the impact they have made on our lives. The Reader’s
Choice awards, on the other hand, are awarded based on readers’ votes
and it is an indication of the brand’s success in this crowded IT and
consumer electronics space.“

During the qualification period, the tech teams at both HWM and
HardwareZone.com identified more than 150 products in 32 popular
categories. The list of nominees was then refined by selecting products
that brought consumers benefits, value and significant advancement in
technologies. These products were then meticulously tested and
benchmarked in HWZ Labs, where a panel of tech experts evaluated the
results to finally determine the Editor’s Choice awards.

Meanwhile, readers of HWM and the online tech community in
HardwareZone.com participated in the awards by voting for their
favourite brands. More than 80 brands competed for the Reader’s Choice
awards where more than 80,000 votes were received.

David Chieng, Editor of HWM said: “Technology today has evolved
so rapidly that the criteria we set as the benchmark the year before
may not necessarily remain the same this year. It was a challenge to
get so many products tested in the lab while ensuring that our results
remain relevant and useful to consumers.”

Eugene Low, Deputy Managing Director, SPH Magazines, added: “We
believe the HWM+HardwareZone.com Tech Awards 2010 will set a benchmark
in the tech industry as the platform for our technology partners to
showcase their innovative products. We hope the award recipients will
be encouraged and will continue to look into constant improvements and
innovations that will benefit consumers.”
