Apple iPhone 4 was successfully named the “Best Mobile Device” at the recently held Mobile World Congress 2011 (MWC 2011) in Barcelona. Support from judges, Apple‘s newly released gadget was made the winner due to its “great screen, sharp design, fantastic materials, and phenomenal ecosystem for app developers.”
Other contenders at the Mobile Awards included, HTC Desire, LG Optimus 7, BlackBerry Torch 9800 and the Samsung Galaxy S. Even though at one point I do agree with the judges, on the other hand my choice would be the LG Optimus 7. An edge should have been given with the device being totally new, a totally different OS, features, design and specially the wide demand.
While HTC competed for the award with its “Desire” handset, the smartphone was not able to succeed but it did won the award for “Device Manufacturer of the Year”. Handing out the award, the judges told:
Built its market presence from nowhere, with fresh branding and marketing and a strong portfolio of devices across many platforms. In particular, it has proven an exceptionally popular and enduring phone manufacturer. With great communication and good customer service, this is a well-deserved award.
