PA Reader Awards 2011: current standings

PA Reader Awards 2011: current standings
We are only a few days away from the end of the voting phase for our PA Reader Awards 2011, so we wanted to throw a quick look at the current standings and see who's been performing best so far.

In the Best Phone category, you've shown very strong support for the Samsung Galaxy S II, and having in mind the little time that's left (we'll be issuing the results on December 7), we doubt that any of the other competing handsets will be able to overtake it. With less than 50% of the votes given to the Galaxy S II, the Galaxy Nexus seems to be the second most-loved smartphone by our readers. Not very far behind however comes the iPhone 4S at the third place. Surprisingly, we have the DROID RAZR outside of the top 3 for now, but it's actually pretty close to the iPhone 4S, so who knows, it might be able to grab the bronze if its fans decide to participate more actively.

The Apple device is performing much better in the Best Tablet category. There, the Apple iPad 2 has occupied the top spot as of now, but the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, which is currently second, still has a chance of gaining the lead. Whether this will happen is another story. Not surprisingly, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer has grabbed the third place, and is ahead of the Kindle Fire by quite a margin. It may be late for the Transformer to fight its way to the gold, but it can certainly finish second, so if there are some Eee Pad Transformer users out there who haven't voted yet, this is the right time for them to join the party.

Finally, we aren't surprised by what we see in the Person of the Year category at all. It looks like Steve Jobs won't give a chance to anyone else, seeing that he's first right now, and with a very healthy lead. Far behind, but with enough number of votes to guarantee the silver, we see Google's Andy Rubin, also known as the Father of Android. It will actually be interesting to see who'll finish third, because there are a few participants who are very, very close to each other. Right now, this is HTC CEO Peter Chou, but just two votes behind, we have NVIDIA CEO Huang. However, Amazon's Jeff Bezos isn't far from scoring a bronze either, as he's also just two votes behind Huang.

As you can see, there's still much that you can change. So, if you think that your favorite isn't getting the deserved attention, the best thing you can do is go to you PA Reader Awards 2011 post, and vote!

Who'll come out on top? There are only a few days between us and the final results of the PhoneArena Reader Awards 2011, which will be available this Wednesday, on December 7!

I hope so i love HTC , but cmon who are we kidding? theyv been making huge profits , what are they doing with them? they should spend them in R&D and innovation , not spend it on acquisitions like s3 graphics , or buying 51% shares of beats , they need to invest in creating their own super display screens , their own chipests , they have potential , i like their marketing style and their phones , but just innovate! :)

The Transformer deserved to be second, if not first best tablet. I agree the SGSll should win for best phone followed by the Razr. The galaxy nexus should be third for best phone. I don't really have a best person. Yes, the results will be interesting indeed...

the results are not suprising so far. Everything is pretty much where i expected it would be. :) I would have thought that the asus would have taken 2nd place as we generally have a pretty tech savy crowd, but with steve's death he is a sure win in that category and samsung's innovations are sweeping the phones. Thats pretty much on target.

For some reason my gut tells me that >80% of the readers that would have voted for the Galaxy Nexus, have never actually held it, let alone own it.
