UPDATE: You can now see the final results in the polls below, or visit this post for a quick summary.

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

We intend on posting a set of articles, where we'll kind of award different devices and other achievements for their impact on the wireless industry, but in the meantime, why don't you take your time and vote for which you think were the best phone, tablet and person of the year?! The time has certainly come for all PhoneArena readers to truly state their opinion with regards to this important matter, so without further ado, let's see which devices and people we have lined up in our Best Phone, Best Tablet and Person of the Year categories...

PA READER AWARDS 2011: BEST PHONE


Without a doubt, this year saw an incredible amount of impressive devices, each leaving its own special mark on us. Who can forget the BIONIC, with its notorious delays, or the ThunderBolt, which introduced U.S. users to the awesomeness of 4G LTE connectivity? Not us, that's for sure! Some handsets, on the other hand, will stay in history with their remarkable approach to design - like the DROID RAZR and the iPhone 4S, both of which are probably the highest-quality phones, in terms of build quality, out there on the market right now. And then we have offerings like the HTC Rezound, which try to capture our hearts with their glorious specs sheets, or the Galaxy Nexus - the long-awaited upcoming warlord of the Android tribe. Be sure to vote in the poll below if you want your favorite phone to win!

PA READER AWARDS 2011: BEST TABLET


2011 was the best year for the tablet biz ever! This isn't really a surprise, given that tablets started their game last year, and have been gaining pace ever since. We're still observing the well-know situation of having a distinct leader in the field, in the form of the iPad 2, but interestingly, some more or less noteworthy competitors have started to emerge recently. We can't hide the fact that the Amazon Kindle Fire is the tablet that we think will come closest to the iPad's popularity, though exactly how close that would be, remains a mystery for now. And of course, there have been some other "standout" products, like the surprisingly well-performing Asus Eee Pad Transformer, or the exceptionally thin Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9. Okay, let's see which tablet you guys favor the most!

PA READER AWARDS 2011: PERSON OF THE YEAR


Alright, here's an interesting one - it's time for you to pick that influential person from the wireless industry that you think deserves to be called Person of the Year. Below, we've pre-selected a number of people which we believe should be given credit, due to their exceptional contribution to the progress of the industry. Of course, you'll see the names of Apple ex-CEO Steve Jobs (our reasons to nominate him shouldn't need any explanation), Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos (for producing the awesomely-priced Kindle Fire), NVIDIA CEO Huang (for being first to deliver multi-core SoCs for our beloved phones and tablets), Google Senior VP of Mobile Andy Rubin (for keeping a close eye on the development of Android) and many other great people. Think that someone needs to have their name stand out for a particular reason, or you just sympathize them? The way to help them win is by voting in the poll below!

S2 is the most worthy. Sales and Undefeated for months now.

I voted: s2, eee pad, jobs

jobs is worthy enough.
iPad 2... Seriously??? It's like a toy.

The ipad 2 is not a toy. It can go head to head with some of the best android tablets. It also makes MUCH more sales. And it practically created the table market. sounds like a pretty important toy to me.

Very true, even though I\'m sporting a Sensation 4G the GSII is the most worthy of all and also the DROID Razr.

I was truly saddened after hearing about Steve's untimely death, but we didn't see anything from him in the whole 2011. Yes he gets Person of the decade in my book and I know that he spent the whole year under treatment. Person of the year should be someone that gave the tech world the most in 2011 and I'm afraid Steve didn't do anything. NVIDIA's Huang made all the right calls this year and he gets my vote, followed by Bezos. And frankly I don't know what Ballmer is doing on that list, The funniest person of the year?!

I agree with u, Samsung Galaxy S2, its scooping Phone of the Year Awards. [Though I want my iPhone to win, FACT is, iPhone lost it's charm sometime last year and it's about time we realize that, remove the App Store, iPhone is nothing.....]

I'd rather see Matias Duarte on there over Andy Rubin. Matias has done more for Android this year.

i believe HTC will make the best ics device for 2012 & i hope that Google will make a galaxy nexus s in 2012 though im still contemplating on samsung being the new manufacturer of the nexus series & the iphone 4s will be sure to fade if they dont push the sale of the iphone 5 in 2012...im really excited about the ipad 3 though

I don't think Samsung will make the next Nexus. I think Google may choose LG or Sony for the next Nexus device. Google may also choose HTC again.

Agree!! A strong contender, and as a WP supporter, I would have been in his corner. Strange PA left him off.
