Few questions to think / ponder about:
1. What are the learning's to take from these startup's that have won the award? is it their business model? team? funding? - behind their success...
2. How many years will social networks dominate? Facebook is the winner for second consecutive year & FriendFeed being the new startup
3. Is Google Android giving any serious competition to iPhone? will they be able to get the required adoption by mobile manufacturers?
4. Can Windows 7 introduce any new products for startup category next year?
5. Looks like India based startup's did not even make into final nominees, are we being innovative enough?
