Revered as the ‘Oscars of the gadget world’, the T3 Gadget Awards in association with Qualcomm & EE recognise and honour the gadgets, software and personalities who have intrigued, inspired and wowed the world over the past twelve months.
Christian O’Connell has become one of the most respected and recognised people in British broadcast journalism. Winner of thirteen prestigious Sony Radio Awards, six of which being gold, he was previously the presenter of XFM’s breakfast show, before moving to Absolute Radio (then known as Virgin Radio) in 2006. He has built on the success of the breakfast show in his own inimitable style, making it must-listen radio and one of the most popular breakfast shows in the UK.
Christian O’Connell says: “What man doesn’t love a gadget? They are the new rock ‘n’ roll – irresistible to us all.”
T3 are delighted to announce EE, as an official partner of the T3 Gadget Awards alongside Qualcomm. EE is the company that runs the Orange and T-Mobile brands in the UK, and will be launching its new super fast 4Gbrand –
EE – in the coming weeks.
T3 editor, Luke Peters, says: “Having Christian as host is fantastic. As one of the UK’s most respected broadcasters, it will be great to have his own unique take on the Awards. And having the newest and most innovative communication company, EE as a partner, we look forward to delivering the biggest and best awards yet.”
