LONDON, United Kingdom – Nokia CEO Stephen Elop was last night awarded Mobile Personality of the Year at the Know Your Mobile awards at Vanilla in London.
In a double win for Nokia’s new direction, Windows Phone 7 scooped the prize for Operating System of the Year.
The awards were decided by a panel comprised of Jonathan Morris, senior editor at Steel Media; Susi Weaser, freelance journalist; Harriet Rhodes, editor of dialaphone.co.uk; Comedian and host Steve Furst; and Know Your Mobile’s features editor Richard Goodwin.
Group editor Clare Hopping pronounced 2011 “a great year for mobile”. We’re inclined to agree, although we think 2012 could be even better!
