2011 Winners from CTIA’s E-Tech Awards

At this week’s CTIA conference in Orlando, Florida a contest was held to determine the best in mobile applications, mobile consumer electronics, enterprise and vertical markets and network infrastructure. The contest, called the E-Tech Awards, was judged by media and industry analysts. The criteria for determining the winners included innovation, functionality, technological importance, implementation and overall “wow” factor. In addition, show participants and other industry peers could vote for their favorite via text message or online to pick the two “fan favorite” awards dubbed the “Best Online Pick” and “Best in Show.”

Below is the list of the finalists and the winners.

The finalists were broken down into the 14 categories, as seen below. The company in bold is the 1st place winner for that category. In parenthesis, it’s indicated whether the company place first, second or third.

The entry with the most online votes was the Keyring Rewards Card from Mobestream. Meanwhile, the “Best in Show” (based on text messages) went to the Samsung Galaxy S 4G.
