Nokia Lumia 800 wins Editors Choice at What Mobile awards

The Nokia Lumia 800 has received praise in reviews from many different venues and Nokia can now add a new piece of hardware to the shelf, the Editors Choice Award. At the 2011 What Mobile awards, the Lumia took home the Editors Choice award and the Samsung Galaxy SII took the mobile of the year award.

It was reported across the web that the Lumia 800 took the Mobile of the Year award but in fact, it took the Editors Choice award. Both the Lumia 800 and the Galaxy SII are worthy of their respective awards as both devices have received high marks in nearly all aspects when the devices were reviewed.

For Nokia and Microsoft, the Lumia 800 being selected as the Editors Choice will help bump the image of Windows Phone and give Nokia hardware more exposure. This is critical as Microsoft and Nokia are going all in on Windows Phone and the platform, so far, has been the underdog despite being well received by those who use the platform.

The Samsung Galaxy SII is no surprise either as it has been often referred to as the device to beat in all segments, including Apple's iPhone.

How can a touch screen phone (Galaxy S II) win phone of the year, but not best touch screen phone?

That was exactly my though... )

they meant SNOW not the idiotic spanish name

Of course they didn't meant to call it "whore", the question is if they'll keep that name in Spanish speaking countries.

Quite, he probably would have spun it as it "is was disappointing that there was no other Windows Phone related items on the list", and how it "looks discouraging for Microsoft"

He probably also would have thrown in something about how Apple had three of its devices on there and how Nokia only has one thereby stating that Nokia has no chance against Apple in terms of manufacturing.

Which is a better award? Mobile Phone of the Year or Editors Choice Award?

haha Yeah I wondered that too. They both sound the same to me.

Best phone for business = iphone4 wtf?

I guess if you only use one Exchange account it's ok. For me, I use WP7 for multiple Exchange accounts and the ability to work with Sharepoint from the phone.

iOS does support multiple exchange accounts since version 4.

Yeah I had them on my iPhone but the implementation was a bit gooberish. WP7's is much cleaner.

Beside iOS supporting it since version 4, your average business person only has 1 exchange account.
