For god's sake, i just read most of the comments, it's a joke people!! Let me break down in simplified baby english.

Mobile Imaging Award- Iphone, with a 2 mp camera without auto focus or flash, and the joke is that it has to be daylight to take snapshots, in other words, it sucks!

Creative naming category- They just added HD, Diamond2 and 09 on their new phones, how creative is that when naming a new phone.

Best touchscreen phone category - Motorola A3100 has the worst toucscreen ever, it hardly responds.

The most reliable handset on the market - Nokia 5800 and the Blackberry freezes up and stupp alot.

Original design award - Sony Ericsson W705, this design has been on the W series SE phone since the middle ages, so it's not exactly a original out of the box design, it's same boring W series design we have seen over and over again.

Compact design category award - Toshiba TG01, compact my ass, haha, this is phone is as big as a freakin mini laptop! That's the joke.

Top all-rounder award - Nokia 1202, it is a basic phone with almost nothing in it, just like the iPhone, that's the joke.

The awards are given to phone that are the complete opposite of what they got the award for, THAT'S THE JOKE!! for god sake, can't believe i'm actually explaining this.
