Windows Phone is hot on the competition’s tail. A recent PCMag.com survey put the Windows Phone 7 Samsung Focus on the top spot of best mobile phone on AT&T network, beating the famous iPhone 4. The survey, titled “Readers’ Choice Awards 2011,” involved PCMag’s very own readers voting on several phones on different networks, and their operating systems as well. The survey involved asking readers what current phone they used, what they enjoyed about it, what type of connection it uses (3G, 4G, etc.), and finally to rate each category of features several phones have based on a scale of 0 to 10. Head over to the article to read it in it’s entirety, or just take a look at the full survey results provided by PCMag.
