Not a lover of the awards, but I think that it is not over share with you the winners of the GSMA Global Mobile Awards, awards that are granted at the Mobile World Congress, the discretion of a large jury made up of professionals in the sector.
19 existing categories, and more than 500 nominations submitted, I’d like to highlight the best mobile phone in the last year, in it the winner has been the HTC Hero, the best exponent of the Android operating system in the first generation of terminals, with a super hardware and a customization of the interface with HTC Sense which has created school.
Has been assessed particularly with an affordable price, you can have excellent connectivity, access to a world of applications, and integrate major social networks, with hardware that allows a correct way.
Apple is not a friend of the Mobile World Congress, but that does not mean that it can not be valued by the Court, in fact Steve Jobs, it has been awarded as the personality of the year in the mobile industry, a category elected by means of communication credited.
