The Global Mobile Awards 2009 ceremony took place yesterday evening in Barecelona as part of the Mobile World Congress, and Research in Motion's Co-CEO Jim Balsillie was in attendance to pick up a couple of awards for the company.
In addition to winning the GSMA Chairman's Award for RIM's all around awesomeness in terms of keeping the mobile data flame alive and helping justify the industry's investment into GPRS and 3G in the early years, RIM also won the Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough award for the BlackBerry Storm's SurePress Screen. The judges comments: "RIM does it again, with a new twist to the touch screen. The SurePress screen incorporates touch with confirmation, taking interaction to a new level."
