iPhone’s fellow nominees for the “Best Mobile Device” award included: Apple iPhone 4, Samsung Galaxy S,HTC Desire, LG Optimus 7 (running Windows Phone 7) and BlackBerry Torch 9800.
This is what the judges had to say about iPhone 4:
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 smart phones.
