Windows Phone 7 has won “Operating System of the Year Award” at the 2011 Know Your Mobile Awards.
As a whole the judges liked the “easily customisable start screen, which is focused on putting people first.” and the fact that ” Windows Phone integrates the user experience to deliver smarter and easier communications, apps and Internet experiences.”
Individual judges thoughts:
‘It has the most potential, with a unique interface and a rapidly growing apps selection. It has a great looking UI and doesn’t look like Android or iOS.’
‘A massive move from the previous OS. Huge growth in apps and the system looks heaps better than the competition.’
‘Innovative interface, with more success to come.’
‘A refreshing OS that doesn’t try and copy other operating systems. Has attracted a large number of developers too.’
The runner ups on this category were Blackberry 7 and Samsung Bada.
