iphone won?! i cant believe it, from 2g,3g and 3gs like not much changes and still can snatch an award? thought so much better phone out there that far superior than iphone? nevermind...this is their last award...the next iphone will not much different in spec...you all must agree...they are not creative people...right apple?
congratulation with all the winner, well done... too bad the award come to early...there are bunch of great phones that not released yet...
thanks gsm for sharing this :)
I love it how all the iPhone haters suddenly come out of the woodwork. The iPhone is a great phone.. Better allrounder than anything else of the Market.. And I sell phones for a living. There is nothing that matches it's ease of use and versitility. It is easily deserving of the award ahead of the old fassioned and outdated windows mobile system.. With their terrible touchscreens.. Give me reasons as to why they are best for business? What do they do the iPhone doesn't for business use? I'm even typing this on an iPhone now!
Anonymous, 17 Aug 2009How the iPhone receives a "Smartphone award" if it is not a smartphone!!!?? there is nothing ... moreA smartphone has to have the capability of third party apps, iPhone is the undisputed champ at apps, so therefore the no. 1 smartphone
I think that a smartphone ought to handle multitasking with third-party programs just as any pc, EISA just lost credibility.
Apple's iphone will never dominate the market due to Apple's greed and coveting of their software. The technology they use is hardly innovative, as they've been sued for patent infrigement a few times now. It's taken them two years to finally be able to label it as a smartphone and looking at the competition I'd bet a considerable sum that the iphone will be old hat within the next year, 3GS v2 or no.
Can the iphone open several programs at once and allow me to flip between them quickly whilst listening to music and making calls?
lol iphone n°1 smartphone. it cant even multitask. just about every feature on the iphone is outdated except for the capacitive touchscreen. its a joke lol
Anonymous, 17 Aug 2009totally agree with you but SE flagship for business will be SE X2 not SE X3 because WM is bett... moreSorry... you're right,
I mean Xperia X2 not X3,
in my opinion:
Camera Phone award : SE Satio (but it's too late SE!)
Music Phone : SE W995 (I agree)
Business Phone : SE Xperia X2 (away better than E75)
Smartphone award : Nokia N97 (not iphone)
Green award : iphone (may be)
I'm sure that 99.9% of readers are agree with me!!!
(sorry for my bad English)
How the iPhone receives a "Smartphone award" if it is not a smartphone!!!??
there is nothing smart about iphones. Except for apple and their big money - THAT'S smart! nice one fooling the world apple, i'll give you some nuts as a prize.
Aasim, 17 Aug 2009iPhone critics should be silent now - once and forever!Why should we? That blasphemous phone (OMG, what do you call it? Jesusphone?) ought to be banished from this world. So much for the smugness. Lol.

Agreed, it can't multitask. Basic multitasking like listening to music while browsing gallery, and songs resuming from where they stoped during a call are available in even cheapest of fones.
Great fone though. Zippiest UI, Superb browser, and Best touch response.
But I think Sony Ericsson Satio will be the best camera phone and it's better than OMNIA HD but it's not available in the market till now.
Also Sony Ericsson Reachel X3 will be the best in Business and it'a away better than Nokia E75.
Sony Ericsson phones are the best but they are toooo... late.
Sorry for may bad English,
Nokia e75 an best busines phone...no way. It maybe a good busines phone but commoon. The desing is awfull flat buttons Cheap touch screen wanabe.
And iPhone an smart phone? I don't think so for my opinnion

They want to limit the growth of 3rd parties, to let themselves rule and dominate the software market as well.

hahah i see no blackberry, also iphone are for kids big icons and colourfull OS easy to use.
Couldn't agree more!!! Omnia HD i8910, iPhone 3GS and LG Arena are the best! no doubts:)
i never trust those award giveaways for mobiles - cuz everytime i see one they give it away to a phone that is out of winning area . last time they gave away the award for the well balanced option phone to s.e. w910 which is no where near well balanced options , thats in last mobile world congress event . many have refused it . and this time the i phone . these are all marketing gimmiks . they want to sell the phone as much as they want to . dont fall for tricks .
for eg - take a look at some of the pc video games - they get so many awards by some magazines and companies months before they get released to the gamers .
srq, 17 Aug 2009How can iPhone win the European Smartphone award, without the feature of multitasking?! BTW it... moreI like how I can start a photo slideshow on my iPhone while music plays via iTunes, it interrupts when a message comes in then resume, WOW IT'S MULTITASKING.
I like surfing the net while music plays and when a call comes in I can answer it, resume surfing the net as I talk and then the music picks up where it left off when I end the call... MULTITASKING.
The iPhone won and deservedly so, build a bridge, get over it.
There's a new kid on the block and they blew the smartphone market wide open in a couple of years, I guess there are some who cling to the tired old ideas of cramming a device so full of features that it becomes virtually unusable.
Now instead of mouthing off with the same rubbish we've heard for the last few years maybe you should take a look at what people are doing with iPhone's, particularly developers with their Apps.
