Ouch! DROID Beats iPhone for Time’s Gadget of the Year

Android fans, rejoice! Time Magazine has just published its Top 10 Gadgets of 2009 and surprisingly (yes it surprised me) Motorola’s “recently” released DROID is the no.1 gadget of the year. Now, how is that possible?

No offence meant to Android fans and DROID users. But how could a gadget that was released only during the 4th quarter of the year possibly become “the gadget of the year?” Even if Time didn’t bother to explain their criteria for choosing this year’s gadget of the year from among the other gadgets that were released and became so popular this year, there’s no way that DROID can become the gadget of the year.

Or perhaps I’m not aware of how far the Moto DROID has affected the mobile consumer market. According to Time Magazine:

The Droid is a hefty beast, a metal behemoth without the gloss and finish of the iPhone, but you don’t miss it. The Droid’s touchscreen is phenomenally sharp and vivid, it has an actual physical (not great, but good enough) keyboard, and best of all, the Droid is on Verizon’s best-of-breed 3G network.

But how many users does the Moto DROID have right now? I mean, how many people have already seen if not used it?

Anyway, in case you want to know, Time’s top 10 gadgets of 2009 are the following - Motorola DROID, Nook (another controversial choice), Dyson Air Multiplier, iPhone 3GS, Canon EOS-1D Mark IV, Dell Adamo XPS, FinePix Real 3D W1, Casio G-Shock GW7900B-1, Beats Solo by Dr. Dre and Panasonic G10 Series Plasma HDTVs.
