Last year Samsung Mobile swept the 2010 CTIA Enterprise & Applications Hot For The Holiday Award show, and they have enough products in this year where they may sweep in 2011 as well. Hot for the holidays submissions are made over the summer and a group of industry judges (we’ve judged several times) take care of the semi-final round. This year, the public will help choose just what’s hot for the holidays in different categories.

The final awards presentation will be October 12 at 2:00pm in San Diego during CTIA’s Enterprise and Applications Show.
