T-Mobile G1 Wins “Highly Commended” in Global Mobile Awards

gsma_awardThe “clunky” and “not very sexy” T-Mobile G1 has won “Highly Commended“  in the GSMA’s Global Mobile Awards.  Well, it tied the Nokia E71 to be fair for the runner up spot.  Both handsets were ‘highly commended’ and come in right behind INQ’s INQ1.

According to the GSMA , this award “recognises the combination of design, technical excellence and functionality that comes together to position a product at the top of its market.” 

Not too shabby eh?

In order to qualify, products entered had to be commercially available in at least one market and launched between December 1st, 2007 and November 28th, 2008. 

Judging was based on:

  • Functional and physical design innovation
  • Product performance
  • Simplicity of use – such as an intuitive user interface
  • Wide range of applications and features supported
  • Unique attributes (i.e. key market differentiators or Unique Selling Points)

Thanks for the tip Paul!

EDITOR UPDATE: This was erroneously reported on earlier. Thank you to Mark Murphy for helping clear this up.
