The nominations for the EE Pocket-lint Gadget Awards are underway, but who will be the judges helping decide the best gadgets of 2015?

The EE Pocket-lint Gadget Awards looks to reward those devices that are best-in-class from throughout the last year. The rules are simple: firstly, we need to have seen and used the device in question; secondly, it has to have been launched within the last year, since the close of the 2014 Awards.
