The Shiny Awards Tonight!

Our posh frocks have been dusted off and dry-cleaned, our high heels are sat under our desks, ready and willing to cripple us as soon as we put them on, and our handbags are weighed down with make-up kits three times the size of the ones we usually carry. It can mean only one thing...

It's time for The Shiny Awards! For the third year, Shiny Media will be handing out gongs to the best in technology and gadgets, and this year the fashion team have had their say on some of the worthy winners. After all, I've talked many times before about how closely the fashion and technology industries are linked.

This year we voted on categories that included the Best Fashion Mobile, Gadget Accessory of The Year and our favourite, the WAG Gadget Of The Year (basically the pinkest, girliest thing on the market). For a full list of the nominees, see below the cut. We'll be posting the results here tomorrow, or if you can't wait until then, check Tech Digest tonight after 8pm.
