Computex 2002 has announced its Best Choice Awards, for products on display at the show. The awards are presented by the organisers of Computex, the Taipei Computer Association and the China External Trade Development Council, in twenty different product categories. Among the winners were Asustek, Via and Benq.

Asustek scooped awards in three categories, winning best mobile product for its PDA A600, its P4B533-E motherboard and the AP2400R-T PC/Server system. The PDA A600 PocketPC, known as MyPal, has been attracting considerable interest at the show, as it contains the fastest mobile processor to date, running at 400MHz, in one of the slimmest PDA form factors.

Via was awarded for its new tablet PC design, a reference design product that is due to hit the market later this year. The product is aimed at bridging the gap between the notebook and the desktop, according to the company, and utilises a number of Via components, including the Apollo 2002 mainboard, C3 E-series processor and the Apollo Pro266T chipset.

Benq made a good showing in its first show after relaunching (previously it was Acer peripherals) winning the award for best LCD monitor. While LCD monitors have definitely now established themselves as the industry standard, Benq's FP781 LCD stood out because of its slimline design and range of onboard features such as multi-media speakers, microphones and earphones all in a 17" form factor.

Among other notable winners was AboCom's 6-in-1 card reader and HDD, Symtron Technology's FaceOn Logon facial recognition software, and Chic Technology's wireless optical mouse.
