It's that time of the year again, when we feel the need to sit down and think about all that has happened since last January. And once again, we're amazed to find out just how many incredible devices we've seen during 2011 - this has surely been the best year ever when it comes to smartphones and tablets...

why do you make an assumption that we are all trolls here? The very fact that in 2/3 categories apple is leading opposes what you just said.. We sir do know what we talk about and have the ability to comprehend that although we love somethings more doesnt mean that they are the best out there.

Can you cut it out already? If we where to be trolling the poll would be a mess. You are just a louzy hater because we can like things about apple while you don't about Android Or other OS's. grow up

What? Eee pad is a great tablet concept. It tries to make a new experience by giving people two devices to use. People can have an experience similar to the ones they have on their notebook while having a slim super portable device, you can do work on the dock then remove and take it to work Then dock it back when you arrive. they tab was well priced had some good innovative idea. The tab gets updated rather fast. Its simply a good device. So why it is a troll job?

Galaxy S 2 (Obviously, its my beloved and has been the benchmark this year)
Ipad-2 ( I love the asus and the galaxy but i-pad 2 has way better apps which clinched it for me)
Steve Jobs (no need to explain)

I get that its been released in Europe but sense PA is an American website I figured they would wait to post this article only after the Nexus was released in the U.S.

If you count the Samsung votes, which are Apple knock offs, Apple has almost 90% of the smartphone votes and over 70% of tablet votes.

That's a dumb statement. Maybe people are voting because the device is good had a little number of issues and is fast? Of you just are picking up a fight? Are you that bored?

i gave my vote to the iphone because is the phone i owned but the SGSII has been released since June so to call it phone of the year it must be available most of the year.. but i am an Apple faithful,.. and this is a popularity more then the truth..the Nexus is not released unless you live in the UK.. bloody bastards.. the ipad2 and Mr. Jobs...

Rezound, Transformed, Jobs. Rezound is extremely underrated, and slightly better than Razr. Nexus shouldn't be on the list because its not out in the US market. Transformer and iPad depends on your preference. Jobs should win hands down. And btw, why is the Bionic/Thunderbolt in there but no ATT/Sprint phones like Evo and Photon?!?!? PA Verizon biased

I obviously vote for Galaxy S II as the best phone 2011.
Simply because SGS 2 price was reasonable & it's performance was nearly perfect. Sorry for iPhone 4 S (although it isn't bad either but as an apple user i was expecting more).

Person of the year? i'll guess Steve Jobs deserve it (not to mention he didn't do much in 2011), it's because Steve Jobs successfully creating a strong mindset to apple fanboy & i respecting him as an inventor.

I voted... Galaxy S2, Ipad2 & Steve Jobs..... I´m a Galaxy S2 lover, but I have to admit that the Ipad2 is the tablet to beat & that Steve Jobs is the person of the year.

Let's left all fanboyism from voting...

Voted Samsung Galaxy S2 (perfect all-rounder), iPad 2 (I must admit iPad 2 has the best experience on tablet) and... where is Stephen Elop? Well, I voted Peter Chou then, since he's very open minded and I like it.

I have an SGSII, so that means i voted for...
Kindle Fire! I thinking about it's effect in the long run, and how consumers perceive their tablets to be.
I'm going with Steve Jobs for the single fact that he's passed on. But if Samsung's CEO were in the mix, I would have voted differently.

I must start out by saying I really am not a fan of where the mobile industry has headed for the last several years, nor of where it appears to be on its way to. That said, I did decide to participate in the vote. I do not own any of the mentioned phones. I do not own a tablet. When it came to phones, I voted for the one that I feel works the best and smoothest out-of-the-box, regardless of specifications, from my own toying around with my friend's devices, or when I find them in stores. With the tablets, I went for what appears to deliver the most bang for my buck, because I really would not get a tablet unless it both worked decently AND was cheap, and it would not be primarily used, by me, for internet or communications. As for people, I chose the one who I felt had the biggest impact on the industry this year, and that choice was super-clear and easy to make.

My picks for 2011:

Phone - Apple iPhone 4S
Tablet - Amazon Kindle Fire
Person - Steve Jobs

If other choices were available, I probably would still have voted for Steve Jobs anyway... his affect on the industry has continued to be a driving force since the original iPhone in 2007, and has never let up even after his recent passing.

Personality = NVIDIA CEO Huang

Mobile = Samsung Galaxy S II (though my best wishes are with Nokia for a comeback and i am sure it will in 2012)

Tab = Asus Transformer (I am ordering Asus Transformer Prime ..lucky to have that on preorders in Canada)

I voted for the Droid Razr. Honestly, I think that is the most impressive device out of all the phones on that list. iPhone, yeah whatever, Galaxy S II is not really exciting, but I mean the Razr is freaking awesome with its screen and processor and Kevlar.

Okay, I'm have the three ecosystem of mobile phones, (iOS (iphone 4), Android (HTC Sensation) and Win. phone 7.5 (Samsung Focus) . All of the three are good, I'm not pleasing everyone to like nokia-microsoft partnership but give nokia a try, It's starting over again, so why not try to give nokia a chance to return back to mobile industry.

OMG Jobs? Really? The lock it down, I know better than anyone else what is best for you guy?

I'll give him salesman of the decade... he knew how to put together and market a product that would bring in the most profit.

It drove me nuts that he insisted on not pushing the limits with the devices he made, and his refusal to give the customer the freedom to control their own devices.
