Apple’s iPhone 4 has been named the best mobile phone of 2010 at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.
Despite a no-show from the Cupertino-based company, which is saving its announcements for its own special event stateside, Apple still managed to bag the most coveted prize of the night at the annual GSMA awards, hosted by Jonathan Ross.
The iPhone 4 beat out strong competition for the gong from Samsung and HTC, which released a number of critically acclaimed smartphones last year, namely the Desire and the Galaxy S.
Although HTC was awarded ‘Manufacturer of the Year’, it might be less than pleased to lose out to a handset that was blighted by reception issues for months after launch.
What do you think of the award? Let us know in the comments section below.
