Apple wins BTA awards

Apple has won five prizes at this year's British Technology Awards, sponsored by a regional publisher. Four of these are for the iPhone, which earned Apple Gadget of the Year, Best Mobile Technology, Most Stylish Technology and Technological Innovation of the Year. The fourth is for the iTunes Store, which won under the aegis of Best Music Technology. The distribution of awards was based on public voting.

Other notable winners include BBC's iPlayer TV and radio streaming service, which won for both Best Online and Best Home Entertainment Technology, and Google Maps, which was voted Most Indispensable. Google Maps integration is considered a selling point of the iPhone, although it is now being added to phones such as the T-Mobile G1.

    Stay sharp.

    Just wanted to be ahead of all the people that will comment about how the Apple Store can't have won the fourth award for Apple, as the iPhone already won four. It can, as for all we know maybe the iPhone won the first three, and the fifth. Seen that way, the Apple Store would won the fourth. So stay sharp; think outside the box. But weird it is, indeed.
