Apple CEO Steve Jobs was named the Mobile Personality of the Year award at this year's Global Mobile Awards hosted at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) show in Barcelona, Spain.
The awards honor "excellence and innovation in mobile communications." Steve Jobs wasn't on hand so actor Stephen Fry, the host of the Global Mobile Awards, accepted the reward on this behalf.
The GSMA (http://www.gsmworld.com) represents the interests of the worldwide mobile communications industry. Spanning 219 countries, the GSMA unites nearly 800 of the world's mobile operators, as well as more than 200 companies in the broader mobile ecosystem, including handset makers, software companies, equipment providers, Internet companies, and media and entertainment organizations.
