iPhone 4 Named Best Mobile Device at Global Mobile Awards

Apple's iPhone4 was named the Best Mobile Device at the Global Mobile Awards 2011 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The phone was praised by judges, and according to Apple Insider, the judges chose it for its “great screen, sharp design, fantastic materials, and phenomenal ecosystem for app developers.”

The judges continue, “In a tight race, the iPhone4 builds on the success of its predecessors to set the pace for smartphones.”

The iPhone4 was up against the HTC Desire, the LG Optimus 7, the BlackBerry Torch 9800, and the Samsung Galaxy S. Fair enough, considering the iPhone4 is last year’s model.

Even though an HTC phone was nominated for best mobile device and didn’t win, HTC did win the award for Device Manufacturer of the Year. The judges praised the Taiwan-based company, saying that it had “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 and exceptionally popular and enduring phone manufacturer. With great communication and good customer service, this is a well-deserved award.”
