Nokia today announced that the Nokia N70 multimedia computer has been awarded ‘Best Mobile Entertainment Handset’ at the annual Mobile Entertainment Awards, the Meffys. The device beat off stiff competition to take the top spot at this industry awards ceremony held in London.

The Meffys, organised by the Mobile Entertainment Forum, are the industry’s official benchmark for measuring success and rewarding innovating in mobile entertainment. The top entries in each category were chosen by a panel of independent industry, media and analyst experts and the winners were announced by top DJ Pete Tong at a ceremony coinciding with the Mobile Entertainment Market (MEM) 2006 in London in May.
