For those who says "Nokia is bla bla bla bla" can see a cheap phone from Nokia "Asha 305" had won the spot of best features at entry level, even some iFanDroids will be mad at it right now...

Glad to see Nokia also holds a spot :) where is iphone in it btw?

the availability of Lumia began in November. It's simple, they couldn't have awarded a device for being on market for 2 months

I few months ago i bought a Galaxy S II thinking that i was buying the best smartphone of 2011. I was very disappointed when i realize that it was pricy peace of crap, Specially the camera, and all samsung's critical bugs. Even after udpating it to jelly bean i just sold it. Before i9100 i had a Nexus S, it was a better phone considering the realeasing time. Sorry justin bieber i'm not a belieber.

Facebook App the best App??? I love FB but I don't understand How it became the Best App.. Maybe because you can download it for free and it has more than 10M download..

Nexus 7 the Best tablet???
Hmm.. Maybe because its not a bad Tablet with a very cheap price...

Samsung S3 the best Smart Phone???
Maybe it has some good features in a very cheap price as well..

So... The Criteria for Judging is:

Being Cheap = 80%
Unit Sold = 10%
Originality = 5%
Innovative = 5%
TOTAL = 100%

What I have learned...
Copy other company's product and put the cheapest Price Tag and you will be the best..

I have a Nexus 7. It's not that good. Ok, but hardly great. If it wasn't as laggy as my other devices it would be perfect.

S3 seems like a good phone. No surprises there. Tho I do think the Lumia 920 is much better in every aspect.
