So here we are. Below you'll find our list of winners for the inaugural Pocket Gamer Awards, as judged by the entire PG editorial team.
If you're wondering how we got here, do check out the Pocket Gamer Awards 2010 Finalists.
The winners have just been announced at a special event taking place during GDC 2010 in San Francisco (thanks to the support from our sponsors, TheGameTrail, Scoreloop and MachineWorks Northwest) and through the miracle of technology we're bringing the results to you near simultaneously.
We're still running the Pocket Gamer Readers' Choice Awards where you can vote on your favourite title of 2009 across the same formats, by the way.
Right now, though, our hearty congratulations go out to this year's winners.The Pocket Gamer Awards 2010: iPhone
