I know there are plenty of excellent smartphones out there. Narrowing down a list of 5, and then ranking them in order of preference, certainly isn’t been easy. But one thing is true who says that there is nothing to great things to expect this year in terms of smartphones and mobile devices? Also inevitably, any such Top 5 list ends up being a subjective process. And any buying decision is going to be one based on a balance between your need, affordability, desirability and brand loyalty., and also I know most are intelligent enough to know that carrying around a cell phone and a PDA is inefficient so lighten your load by picking up an all-in-one device. Whether you use it as an organizer, an e-mail device, a cell phone, or all of the above, getting a smartphone is a smart move
So let me start the show without much honks:
1) BlackBerry Curve (8310, 8320, 8330, 8350i, and 8900)
The BlackBerry Curve is an all-around top-performing smartphone wrapped in a snazzy design. it though lacks 3G, but the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900 is a solid update to the Curve series, bringing a better design, improved features, and faster performance and is one of T-Mobile’s top smartphone offerings. Also no much differential to Bold series
Specs: AT&T GSM 850/900/1800/1900, EDGE; Intel Xscale CPU; 64MB memory; BlackBerry Handheld Software
Price: $149.99 – $609.99
2) Apple iPhone 3GS (16GB and 32GB)
iPhone 3GS doesn’t make the same grand leap that the iPhone 3G made from the first-gen model, but the latest Apple handset is still a compelling upgrade. The iPhone 3GS is faster and the new features and extended battery life, but call quality and 3G reception still need improvement, also Performance enhancements distinguish the otherwise evolutionary step-up iPhone 3GS from its previous iterations.
Specs: AT&T, OS Supported: OS:Mac OS, Battery Life Average (hh:mm): 6:12, 16GB and 32GB
3) Nokia E71x
Affordably priced, the Nokia E71′s sleek design and multitude of useful features makes it ideal for both personal and business use.
Specs: AT&T, OS Supported: OS:Symbian, Battery Life Average (hh:mm): 4:48,
Price: $99.99 – $449.99
4) T-Mobile Mytouch 3G
MyTouch 3G is high-tech android mobile and also as a first android phone T-Mobile’s G1 was a much welcomed entry into the smartphone market with host of features, with a big improvement from its predecessor, but the physical keyboard is sorely missed.
Specs:Carrier:T-Mobile, OS Supported: OS:Proprietary Google Android.
5) Palm Pre (Sprint)
Palm has developed a solid OS that not only rivals the competition but also sets a new standard in the way smartphones handle tasks and manage information, may not be the most innovative smartphone, but it’s extremely capable and affordable enough to fit any budget.
Specs: Carrier:Sprint, OS Supported: OS:Proprietary, Battery Life Average (hh:mm): 5:17,
Price: $199.99 – $699.99
Also here is the top 5 smartphones according to Consumer Reports:
Samsung Blackjack II
Blackberry Pearl Flip
These phones are all fine smartphones but it is surprising that only one Blackberry made the cut, and where the heck is the iPhone 3G? The iPhone 3G was further down the list and actually tied with the T-Mobile G1. Interesting list to say the least.
