Samsung claims top prizes again at GSMA Awards event

Samsung claims top prizes again at GSMA Awards eventMobile World Congress 2013 is all done and dusted, and while we'll no doubt be picking through the bones for the next week or two, the GSMA has its own way of noting the MWC highlights: its Annual Global Mobile awards.

And surprise, surprise, Samsung has won both the Device Manufacturer of the Year award and the Best Smartphone award for the Galaxy S III, while the Google Nexus 7 has been named Best Mobile Tablet.

Samsung's double success sees it retain both awards it won for the first time last year (though with the Galaxy S II, obviously).

And with the announcement that the Galaxy S IV will launch on March 14 having gone out during MWC too, it's fair to say Samsung's dominance of the smartphone market is hard to avoid right now.

Nokia, meanwhile, retained the Best Feature Phone award, this time for the Nokia 305.

On the app front, Facebook took the prize for Best Mobile App for Consumers, Evernote the Best Mobile App for Enterprise, while the Judges Choice award for Best Mobile App Overall went to Waze.

For more details on these and all the other winners from the 18th edition of the GSMA Annual Global Mobile awards, check out the GSMA's dedicated Awards site.
