Gadget title Stuff magazine has stuffed it to Apple by awarding the Asus Eee Pad Transformer with its title of gadget of the year – ahead of the popular iPad2.

The hybrid device features a hybrid tablet screen and detachable keyboard which enables the unit to function both as a passive touchscreen and productive laptop.

This combination of features was sufficient to convince Stuff’s editors, that Asus were worthy of their accolade, despite the iPad2 being better than the Asus as a standalone tablet.

Stuff’s consulting editor Simon Osborne-Walker said of the winner: “Best tablet? No. Best netbook? Probably not. But as a combo of the two - awesome."

In a further blow to Apple the magazine voted Samsung’s Galaxy S2 smartphone as phone of the year.

It wasn’t all bad news for the tech firm though; the iPad3 and MacBook Air were named most wanted future gadget and best computer by the magazine.
