Apple CEO Jobs wins award at Mobile World Congress

Despite Apple’s notable absence at Mobile World Congress, CEO Steve Jobs has been named “Mobile personality of the year” by the GSM Association as voted by the media. Jobs’ award was the only award won by Apple at the event, however, as Best Mobile Handset or Device went to the HTC Hero. British actor, comedian, and writer Stephen Fry, who hosted the awards, accepted the award in Jobs’ stead, adding that he couldn’t make it to the event because “he’s busy working on Apple’s next big thing the iDiaper.” Jobs bested fellow CEOs Eric Schmidt of Google, Mike Lazaridis of RIM, and Pete Chou of HTC for the award.
