Five Companies That Came To Win This Week
Apple Wins MWC Mobile Device Award Without Being At MWC
As if the Apple fanboys and fangirls needed anything else to be smug about, Apple's iPhone 4 managed to win the award for best mobile device at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week without actually being at the show. As mobile device makers jockeyed for attention at MWC, Apple watched haughtily from a position above the fray without offering a shred of perceptible satisfaction with its achievement.
We know that the iPhone is popular, but it has now officially veered into the territory of comic absurdity.
Meanwhile, the iPad helped Apple overtake HP as the top global shipper of mobile PCs, according to new research from DisplaySearch. Apple shipped 10.2 million notebook and tablet PCs, while HP shipped 9.3 million units during the quarter.
