Official – HTC made the Best Coolest Hottest Smartphones of 2008

Wireless and Mobile News, using rather questionable methodology, has declared HTC the biggest maker of Coolest Hottest and Best smartphones of 2008.

The website added up the nominations for best smartphone of 2008 from 9 prominent websites (Infosync, Forbes, The Street, I4U, Channel Web, CIO, Infoweek, CNET and Wireless and Mobile news), and created this rather confusing chart:

When deciphered it looks like this:

T-Mobile G17
HTC Touch Pro4
Sony Xperia3
Palm Treo Pro2
HTC Touch Diamond2
HTC Fuze1
HTC Total19
BlackBerry Storm7
BlackBerry Bold6
BlackBerry Flip1
RIM total14
 iPhone3G7
Apple total7
NokiaE716
Nokia971
Nokia Total7
Samsung Omina2
Samsung Instinct1
Samsung Total3
LG Incite3
LG Total3
Motorola Krave1
Motorola Total1

The conclusion is that HTC manufactured phones were voted as cool 19 times, vs only 14 by RIM and 7 by Apple and Nokia.

When sorted by OS:

HTC Touch Pro4
Sony Xperia3
Palm Treo Pro2
HTC Touch Diamond2
HTC Fuze1
LG Incite3
Samsung Omina2
Windows Mobile total17
BlackBerry Storm7
BlackBerry Bold6
BlackBerry Flip1
Blackberry OS total14
 iPhone3G7
Mobile OSX total7
T-Mobile G17
Android total7
Nokia E716
Nokia N971
Symbian Total7

Windows Mobile is again the clear winner.

While this comparison is obviously just a bit of fun, it is likely that its only due to the efforts of HTC and Samsung that Windows Mobile did so well in Q4 2008, beating out media darling, the Apple iPhone, quite handedly.
