The GSMA has announced the nominees for the 16th Annual Global Mobile Awards. The winners will be announced at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on 15th February 2011. In total, 115 companies have been nominated in ten categories.
The awards categories include a series of new ‘Global Mobile App Awards’ joining the regular high-profile categories of ‘Best Mobile Device’ and ‘Device Manufacturer of the Year’. Jonathan Ross will be presenting all the awards.
Michael O'Hara, chief marketing officer at the GSMA, said “The GSMA warmly congratulates all the nominees in this year's Global Mobile Awards. Our judging panel once again faced a daunting challenge in determining the nominees this year, selecting just 115 nominees across 10 categories from more than 470 entries. To have been shortlisted in such a highly competitive and innovative field is a tremendous achievement and we look forward to recognising the winners and celebrating their success at Mobile World Congress next month.”
In the running for Best Mobile Device are the Apple iPhone 4, the HTC Desire, the LG Optimus 7, the BlackBerry Torch 9800 and the Samsung Galaxy S. Apple, HTC and Samsung are the three nominees for Device Manufacturer of the Year.
