Global Mobile Awards – Winners Announced!

mwc-2014-awards.pngRecently 85,000 people transformed Barcelona into the veritable mobile capital of the world. There was so much going on – from the growth of mobile payments to IoT to mobile marketing – that we have written a special MWC 2014 Wrapup.

One of the highlights of the show is always the Global Mobile Awards. Here below is a complete list of the companies and projects that took home the prizes this year.

One key feature this year was the inclusion of several new categories related to “Mobile for Development“, in line with the growth and impact of mobile internet in developing markets and resource-poor regions of the world.

As Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg highlighted in his keynote, we will see more opportunities involving the use of mobile internet for women, health, education, disability, agriculture, energy and green initiatives in the near future. We applaud GSMA’s strategic move to reflect this development in this year’s awards categories.

Selected from over 680 entries from around the world, the winners listed below represent the leading edge of mobile services and products.
