DALLAS, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* earned top honors at Mobile World Congress, winning two awards at GSMA's 19th annual Global Mobile Awards.  The recognition reflects AT&T's commitment to deliver a best-in-class customer experience while constantly seeking opportunities to keep customers connected to the most innovative products and services.

The Global Mobile Awards honor the most innovative products and services in eight main categories spanning the areas of mobile apps, consumer devices, connected life and infrastructure. More than 680 submissions from around the world were judged by a panel of distinguished industry experts, media and analysts assessing innovation, functionality, implementation and overall value. AT&T secured the following recognition:

  • AT&T Digital Life
    • Winner, Best Consumer Mobile Service
    • AT&T Digital Life is an all-digital home security and automation service that offers on-the-go access to your home from virtually anywhere using your smartphone or tablet, as well as your computer.  Adjust the thermostat, lock/unlock a door or shut off the water main if you're alerted there's a leak—and do it all remotely.
  • FiLIP connected by AT&T
    • Winner, Best Mobile Enabled Consumer Electronics Device (Joint entry with Filip Technologies, Inc.)
    • FiLIP is the world's first smart locator with voice for kids, keeping parents and kids in touch at the push of a button. Unlike other smart locators, FiLIP combines GPS, Wi-Fi and cell tower location, as well as cellular voice capability to provide reliable communication – indoors and out.** FiLIP is a new breed of wearable device that was designed as a simple way for kids to reach their parents, and for parents to find their children quickly and easily.
