Here are the nominations for Innovation award in The Vodafone Pocket-lint Gadget Awards:

Asus - for the Eee PC
Panasonic - for the Micro Four Thirds
Flip Video - for the Flip
Sony - for the XEL-1 OLED TV
Google - for the Android operating system

The Pocket-lint awards are the longest running gadget awards in the UK (that we know of) with 12 categories in total including the coveted Best Product of the Year 2008.

The awards, voted by a panel of leading gadget journalists, including the staff from the Pocket-lint team, will decide the real must-have gadgets of the year, rather than those simply deemed cool or anticipated, and be the definitive guide for consumers looking to buy gifts this Christmas.

Winners will be announced at an Awards evening in London on Thursday 6 November.

If you would like to order tickets to the event please contact us via the feedback form (tickets aren't available to the general public).

We will be announcing all 12 categories today at 30-minute intervals.
