TD Award for Indispensable Mobile
This was a toughie – everyone’s got their favourites when it comes to mobiles and one man’s top spec, top notch phone is another girl’s ugly cumbersome brick. In then end, though, the winner was pretty obvious to all of us. The Orange SPV C500 was a surprise when it was first announced – after all those big, ugly handsets we were expecting more of the same, but the C500 defied all expectation with its tiny size and some rather nice styling. A phone this size that let’s you send emails, sychronise with Outlook and browse the Internet – and looks good while it’s doing it – is truly indispensable. Nokia’s 7610 was our runner up. It may look a bit funny, but the screen and the 1.3mp camera got the judges vote.
