Mon, 01/11/2010 - 4:39am
LAS VEGAS, /PRNewswire/ -- The people have spoken! The Boxee Box by D-Link open-source media player, Microvision's SHOWWX laser pico projector, Clixtr and Gwabbit have been named the winners of Last Gadget Standing and the Mobile Apps Showdown, two of the most fiercely competitive 2010 CES contests.

The "best of" in tech gadgetry and smartphone applications were determined by thousands of consumers and tech enthusiasts through a live CES audience applause-o-meter and an online vote. The competitions, which are co-produced by Living in Digital Times and NetShelter Technology Media, whittled down dozens of submissions in order to find the cream of the crop.

Boxee Box by D-Link, an open-source media player that plays entertainment from the Internet or a computer on a TV, was selected as the winner of the Last Gadget Standing through the live CES audience applause-o-meter.

The Boxee Box supports a wide array of audio and video formats and is integrated with Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites.

Microvision's SHOWWX, the world's first laser pico projector, was selected as the winner of the Last Gadget Standing online vote. The SHOWWX projects big, bright and colorful photos, movies, and presentations that are always in focus, yet it is small enough to fit in your pocket.

Returning for its 10th year as a CES SuperSession, Last Gadget Standing showcased 10 of the hottest innovations. Past winners include such notable products as the Roomba, the Eye-Fi Card, and OnStar.

Clixtr, a mobile app that turns smartphones into smartcameras by leveraging location-based technologies and the rapidly improving quality of camera phones, was selected as the winner of the Mobile Apps Showdown live CES audience applause- o-meter.

Clixtr users create events, upload mobile photos, and, for the first time ever, create real-time event photo streams with the users around them.

When online voting officially ended at 12:00 a.m. PST on January 9th, Gwabbit, LLC was selected as the other winner of the Mobile Apps Showdown. Gwabbit is the only provider of automatic email contact management (ECM) solutions for the contact cloud that automatically searches and identifies contacts embedded in emails and adds or updates that information to your information in a single click.

The Mobile Apps Showdown featured the top 10 mobile applications in five categories: Education, Lifestyle, Entertainment, Productivity and IT. The NetShelter participating partner publishers who helped select the winner for Mobile Apps Showdown include PocketNow.com, PreCentral.net, PinStack.com, Windows Phone Thoughts, SprintUsers.com, CrackBerry.com, NokiaExperts.com, TheiPhoneBlog.com and IntoMobile.com.
