The votes are in, and if polls can be trusted you all really like yourselves hot new mobile tech! We’ve tallied the results, and here are the winners of TechnoBuffalo’s CES 2012 Readers’ Choice Awards as selected by you, The Herd:

Nokia Lumia 900 (18.6% of the vote)

Nokia Lumia 900 - CES 2012 - Award 05

Nokia’s new flagship phone was built specifically for the US market and will be available on AT&T’s LTE network in March.

Asus Eee Pad MeMo (13.9%)

Asus Memo Tablet - CES 2012 Award - 003Asus’ new 7″ Tegra 3-powered tablet picked up Editors’ and Readers’ Choice awards for its combination of power, portability and price.

Samsung Galaxy Note LTE (11.6%)

Samsung Galaxy Note - CES 2012 Award - 01Samsung’s phone/tablet hybrid picked up Editors’ and Readers’ Choice awards thanks to its huge, beautiful display, thin profile, and high-tech stylus.

Since you were asked to vote for three products, it’s not fair to single one out as the winner, but it is interesting to note that the Lumia 900 outpaced the pack by a healthy 5% margin. Also worth mentioning is that Samsung’s phone/tablet hybrid, Galaxy Note LTE, barely eeked out LG’s 55″ OLED HDTV for an award. LG’s stunning new television picked up 11.33% of your votes, losing out to Note by a scant 0.29%!

Thank you to everyone who voted, and thanks to the folks who used the comments section to suggest worthy products we didn’t nominate. We debated long and hard, but ultimately decided that adding more nominees to the list after voting had opened would have made for an unfair process, so we left good enough alone. But we agree, Intel’s first Android phones looked very impressive in show floor demos.

Just because the voting’s over doesn’t mean you can’t choose your own Best in Show. Make your picks in the comments!
