The shortlists for the Mobile Choice Awards 2012 have appeared online. The Mobile Choice Awards which were decided with help from over 26.000 readers.
As you'd expect Samsung and Apple devices feature heavily across the board , but we're sure some awards will be snapped up by some other manufacturers.
The big award is the "Phone Of The Year" award where the shortlist consists of the Apple iPhone 4S, HTC One X , Nokia Lumia 800 , Samsung Galaxy S III and the Sony Xperia S. We predict that Samsung's Galaxy SIII will just pip Apple's iPhone 4S to the award because the iPhone 4S wasn't as revolutionary as everyone had hoped and Siri has been widely criticised.
The "Tablet Of The Year" award has been narrowed down to the Apple New iPad, Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, Nexus 7 by Asus, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and the Sony Tablet S. 3G really hopes the Google Nexus 7 wins the award because as far as value for money goes it can't be beaten !
Another noticeable award is "Best Camera Phone" which surely has to be won by Nokia's Pureview 808 smartphone , which has a stunning 41 mega-pixel snapper. "Most Innovative Device" should be a close battle between Nokia's Pureview 808 and Samsung's Galaxy Note , although Apple's iPhone 4S has also been nominated.
The winners of the Mobile Choice Awards will be awarded at a ceremony taking place on October 8th. 3G will be bringing you all the news of all the winners when they are unveiled next month.
