They would vote Samsung or some other non-iPhone maker as Manufacturer of the Year, because the MWC is for all the also rans, which Apple ignores!
The award, voted by Apple's competitors, conveniently ignores the fact that Apple is so successful that it makes three times as much profit as all the other mobile phone makers combined.
What is surprising is that they voted for iPad as the Tablet Of The Year, bearing in mind that the award is voted for by all Apple's competitors. It seems to show that even its competitors realise that the iPad is generations ahead of the rest of them!
