Apple given a good kicking by Samsung

Written by Nick Farrell



Innovation crown shifted


Jobs' Mobs' reputation for being the innovator that everyone copies has been given a good kicking by the GSM Association. The Association announced the winners of its annual Global Mobile Awards, and Apple's rival  Samsung took home two of the biggest prizes, with Apple following close behind.

As the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona drew to a close, the GSM Association announced the winners of its annual Global Mobile Awards, where the best of the previous year’s mobile-related technology, companies and applications are honored. Samsung walked away with the coveted Best Smartphone award for the best-selling Galaxy S II, beating competition from the Apple iPhone 4S, the Nokia Lumia 800 and its own Galaxy Nexus. Samsung was also Device Manufacturer of the Year, which given the sheer amount of new phones and tablets it came out with during 2011, perhaps isn’t much of a surprise.

Apple can take some consolation that it managed to win the best tablet price against stiffer competition from Amazon with its Kindle and Asus and the Eee Pad Transformer. Nokia won Best Feature Phone with the Nokia C3-00.
