The Global Mobile Awards just announced the winners for 2011. A couple of phone makers and several software developers were honored this year. Some of the winners were expected, while others came as a surprise.

We'll take a quick look at the two more interesting categories - the App Awards and Best Mobile devices award. You can check out the full list of winners and the GSMA judges' comments over at the Award's website.

The Apple iPhone 4 was chosen for the Best Mobile Device award, commended for its sharp screen, build materials and last but not least - the "phenomenal" ecosystem for apps and their developers.

The Device Manufacturer of the Year award was snatched up by HTC. The company built itself up from obscurity with fresh branding and marketing and offers a solid portfolio across software platforms. Their Android offerings stand out the most though, especially the HTC Desire. HTC also received a pat on the back for good customer service.

On the software side, Rovio scored both the App of the Year on the Apple Platform and the overall Best Mobile App award.

Google and BlackBerry won the awards for best app on their own platforms, for Google Maps and BlackBerry Messenger respectively. Herocraft & InnerActive are taking home the "App of the Year on the Nokia Platform" award for the Zum Zum game.

Check out the rest of the awards and judges' coments at the Awards' site.
