Round 2 of our Most Important Gadget of the Year tournament is in the books, and you made some, let's say, interesting choices to get us down to just eight gadgets. You might be pretty surprised about what made the cutoff.
There were a few big upsets this round, like the iPhone not making the final four, and the Lytro Camera and Chevy Volt both taking a dive in an earlish round. But there's still plenty of deciding to do before we're down to one.
As a quick reminder, the gadgets were seeded by where we sort-of-kind-of expected them to land, and will be advancing through their remaining matchups based on those seeds—the same way it works in the NCAA.
Let's get to it:
MacBook Air (2011) vs. Kindle 4
Lumia 800 vs. Samsung Galaxy Nexus
iPad 2 vs. Canon S100
Kindle Fire vs. Galaxy Tab 10.1
Join us every day this week as we—no, you—crown the most important gadget of the year, playoff style.
