GSMA today unveiled winners of the 19th Annual Global Mobile awards, held at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The ceremony itself was hosted by British actor and comedian James Corden. It's news to us all as Nokia came away with multiple awards.
With the company announcing a new family of Android products, alongside a new plan of action to increase the adoption rate of Windows Phone, it's positive to see Nokia be named in the ceremony.
The Nokia 105 took away 'Best Entry-level or Featurephone', while the Lumia 520 was awarded the 'Best Low-cost Smartphone' (sub $150). It's no secret that the Lumia 520 has been a hit with smartphone owners. The Windows Phone has taken off in numerous markets and has helped Nokia effectively dominate the platform ecosystem.
