David Pogue, our good pal over at the New York Times, has given his roundup of the best gadgets and technology of 2006. He’s given his thumbs up to the iPod Nano, YouTube going Google, and a whole slew of other noteworthy’s. Who did he put the sash on for best smartphone of 2006? Both the Treo 700p and the Pearl walk away with the honours – a tie. Maybe the Pearl should have flirted more during the competition, I don’t know.
