Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Wave, SE Xperia X10 Mini and Apple iPad win EISA awards

The European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) has announced the winners of its Mobile Device Awards for 2010-2011, and I think this is the first time when there are no feature phones awarded.

Samsung has nailed two awards with its Galaxy S and Wave S8500 smartphones.

The Android-based Galaxy S has been named the European Smartphone of the year for being “a jewel in the crown” and “a well made device that should capture the attention of every mobile phone lover.”

The Wave S8500 (Samsung’s first Bada handset) won the European Social Media Phone award – you can see why here.

Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X10 Mini (also based on Android) has been declared the European Mobile Phone of 2010-2011. One of the reasons the X10 Mini won this awards is its “female friendly appearance” – that’s not exactly a good criteria for choosing the best phone around, is it?

Anyway, another award that needs to be mentioned is the European Tablet 2010-2011 award, won by Apple’s iPad. Since the iPad doesn’t have any real competition – for the moment – the award comes as no surprise.
