While Mobile World Congress (MWC) is the world’s largest exhibition for the mobile industry, they also host a Global Mobile Awards ceremony as well. The purpose of the Global Mobile Awards is to give credit to the best mobile companies, devices, and software.

This year’s “Phone of the Year” winner, was (unsurprisingly) none other than Apple’s iPhone 4. The GSMA nominees for “Phone of the Year” included the iPhone 4, the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy S and HTC Desire, along with the LG Optimus 7 running Windows Phone 7 and the BlackBerry Torch 9800. Here’s what the judges’ had to say:

“Great screen, sharp design, fantastic materials, and phenomenal ecosystem for app developers. In a tight race, the iPhone 4 built on the success of its predecessors to set the pace for smart phones.”

The funny thing is, Apple didn’t even attend the event. Aside from that, I think Apple definitely deserves the award. Now let’s see if Apple can win next year’s “Phone of the Year” award with the iPhone 5.

    IPhone 4 is the best piece of tech I’ve touched since my first PC in the early 90’s. I can actually go days without even turning my laptop on. (when I do I use my iPhone as the mouse)
