HTC and the Desire were all over the list, and wouldn’t you know it, they took two of this year’s top prizes. That’s right, HTC won Tech Brand of the Year, and the HTC Desire won Phone of the Year.

HTC beat out Apple, Google, Samsung, and Sky for Tech Brand of the Year, and the Desire beat out another HTC device, the Legend, along with the iPhone, Samsung Wave, and Blackberry Bold 9700.
