The 2009 Engadget Awards

The 2009 Engadget Readers Choice and Editors Choice pics are out.

By and large the editors and readers saw eye to eye on the pics, with both groups naming the Motorola DROID the Gadget of the Year.  Readers went so far as to name it the Smart Phone of the Year as well.   Readers and editors also agreed that the GPS Device of the Year was Google Maps Navigation (Beta) for the DROID.  A bold assertion being that for the last few years GPS device have been one of the leading consumer electronics for purchase, use and fascination. 

With all the hype and fanfare for the N1 just a couple months ago, do you think this list would have been different if the magical ‘Google Phone’ would have been released before the year end?

There are a few other notables, so be sure to hop over to Engadget to check out the full list.
