Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3 set for MWC Global Mobile Awards showdown

The GSMA just nominated more than 150 products for its wide-ranging Global Mobile Awards, the premier annual awards for the mobile-phone industry. The winners will be announced at Mobile World Congress later this month.

So who's on the list? As there are six main categories and a half-dozen subcategories for each one, it's a very long list. Developers and manufacturers nominated themselves for some categories, but in the phone and tablet categories, all nominations had to come from the judges. Here are some of the more consumer-friendly competitions.

The Global Mobile Awards 2013 ceremony will be hosted by Little Britain star and Britain's Got Talent! judge David Walliams.

Last year, the best smartphone award went to the Samsung Galaxy S2 The top feature phone was the Nokia C3-00, and the best tablet was the Apple iPad 2.

Who should take home the prizes this year? We'll find out the winners on 26 February.
