Apple’s iPhone 4 wins Best Mobile Device award at Mobile World Congress

The event, a major confab of the mobile industry, has been virtually ignored by Apple in much the same way as the more general Consumer Electronics Show held in January. Apple not only fails to show at both events, but also appears to leak news or hold press events of its own that tend to overshadow the announcements of competing firms.

Judges didn’t hold that against the company however, calling iPhone 4 “Best Mobile Device,” saying that it has a “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 smartphones.”

A separate award for Device Manufacturer of the Year went to Taiwan’s HTC, of which judges said, “this company has 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.”

Also cited was a “Highly Commended” note for the HTC Desire, which judges said “set the bar for Android phones across much of the world in 2010. Packed with great features, this is an enduring product that has performed consistently well.”
