In a surprisingly reluctant acknowledgement of the iPhone's leadership among mobile phones, PC Magazine reports results from its Readers Choice survey. Read the original article here. Excerpts below.
Like the dude, our readers' love affair with the Apple iPhone abides, as it was the only phone brand they rated significantly better than average, making it the clear Readers' Choice with a SBA 9.0 out of 10. Amusingly, the iPhone's overall score went up between 2008 and 2009 even though individual ratings for coverage, call quality, and sound quality all went down! The iPhone didn't rate spectacularly as a phone, but it received great scores as a messaging device, music player, video player, and gaming device.
