Before you jump from the Sprint ship, check out the new Samsung Rant. Design-wise, it's similar to the LG Rumor, with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard (for fast and easy texting, IMing, and emailing), but it's also got EV-DO for high-speed data transfer and access to Sprint's music store, movie channels, and on-demand TV. Additional features include a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and memory card slot. Right now the Rant is just $50 with a... more
Remember when you were a kid, how you could go play in the woods/streets/malls for hours and your parents had no way of finding you? Yeah, well, those days are over, thanks to cell phones (and house arrest ankle bracelets --Ed.). But you don't want to give little kids regular cell phones. Who knows who they'd talk to? And for how long? Enter the new Firefly phone, which has enough features to keep both... more
If you want an iPhone, you have to be an AT&T customer, at least for the next 5 years. But Verizon customers can get many of the same features in the LG Voyager VX1000. Although it doesn't have Wi-Fi, it does have a huge 2.8" touchscreen display and a full tactile QWERTY keyboard. The Voyager offers Web browsing, EV-DO support, a music player with dual speakers (stereo!), Bluetooth, integrated GPS, speakerphone, and a 2-megapixel... more
We admit it. We're impressed with your E90 Communicator. It's got everything we'd want in a handheld mobile office: High-speed mobile broadband, viewing and editing Word/Excel/PowerPoint documents, conference calling, a music player, a 3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, a microSD expansion slot that accepts cards up to 2GB, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Everything but the kitchen sink. But $900? Are you joking? Is it made out of gold?

You can also use the phone to access Sirius satellite radio and streaming radio from... more
PC Magazine recently did a feature on "10 Awesome iPhone Accessories," which included this Belkin iPhone sport armband for people who want to use their iPhones while running or working out at the gym. Made out of lightweight, flexible, and water-resistant neoprene, the armband protects the iPhone's screen while still giving you access to the volume control. It has a Velcro closure and an internal key pocket. More iPhone cases.
Built-in GPS, unlocked SIM capabilities, and dual-mode CDMA/GSM are just part of the appeal of the new BlackBerry 8830. Designed for people whose jobs require a lot of travel, the smart phone lets you make calls and receive email in other countries, swap SIM cards in and out, and even send instant messages with an AIM client. Additional features include EV-DO support, an expandable memory card slot, voice-activated dialing, and an integrated music and... more
In a week dominated by iPhone hype, we're going to do something totally crazy and tell you about another phone: The Sprint Mogul by HTC. Designed for "mobile professionals," the smart phone runs Windows Mobile 6.0 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), and has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, EV-DO support, and a 2-megapixel camera. A full QWERTY keyboard slides out from the phone, and the 2.8" color touch screen switches automatically from portrait to landscape mode. Best of all,... more
Also know as the BlackBerry 8300, the brand-new BlackBerry Curve is the smallest, lightest BlackBerry ever with a QWERTY keyboard. The Curve gets its name from its sleek rounded edges, and has everything but Wi-Fi and 3G support: Phone, email (with spell checker!), messaging, web browsing, Bluetooth, media player, organizer, 2-megapixel camera, walkie-talkie style communication (roger that), and a microSD card slot for adding more memory. See all BlackBerry smart phones.
The new Motorola Razr V3xx is "making the Razr cutting edge again," according to PC Magazine, which just gave the phone an Editors' Choice award. The camera's screen now has twice the resolution and works 7 times as fast as its predecessors. Other features include stereo Bluetooth, Web browser, support for Cingular's 3.5G HSDPA network (for fast Web surfing, streaming music and video, etc.), instant messaging, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and a MicroSD Card slot.
The latest issue of PC Magazine devotes an entire page to the Linksys Yahoo Messenger dual phone. It's a regular cordless phone that you can also use to make free (over your computer) or low-cost (over a land line) calls to people using Yahoo Messenger's voice functionality. Your Yahoo Messenger contact list appears on the handset's display, as does local search and weather. Sounds great, except it won't work for Mac users (yet).
Attention corridor warriors: The BlackBerry 8800 is now available. It's the thinnest BlackBerry yet that also has a full QWERTY keyboard. Features include Bluetooth, internal GPS, and music and video player, as well as the standard email, instant messaging, text and picture messaging, and web browsing. You can view Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents on it too. More BlackBerry smartphones.
Be the "envy" of all your friends with the LG enV multimedia phone. It combines EvDO high-speed technology, a full QWERTY keyboard, 2-megapixel camera, music player (with Bluetooth stereo support for listening to music), stereo speakers, and more into a slim, lightweight package. So you can make calls, take pictures, listen to music, send text messages, and check your email from anywhere. More Verizon phones.
Unlike the Energizer bunny, your cell phone doesn't just keep going and going and going. In fact, sometimes it decides to stop - at really inconvenient times, like when your parachute won't open (what a silly commercial). Enter the Energi To Go, a great $24 investment - or stocking stuffer - for motor mouths. It runs on AA batteries and adds up to 10 hours of talk time and up to 12 days of... more
Introducing the first Blackberry with a built-in camera and media player, the BlackBerry Pearl. Design-wise CNET says the slim Pearl is "the sexiest BlackBerry to date--it even gives the Motorola Q some stiff competition." The Pearl's features include Bluetooth, email, web browsing, and IM and EDGE support. Extra bonuses: A Micro SD slot for expanding memory, and a map application that provides local maps and text-based driving directions.
Even prettier than its Razr predecessors, the Motorola Krzr ("Krazer?" as in "Krazy?" We're not sure.) has a sleeker, sexier design, thanks to the hardened reflective glass on the front and a touch of chrome at the bottom. The Krzr has all the standard features (1.3-megapixel camera, digital music player, Bluetooth, EV-DO support for V Cast video and music, voice recorder, text and multimedia messaging) but its appeal is that it's so pretty.
Why must Nokia hide its cool phones behind such boring names? They should really call their new Nokia 3250 multimedia phone something more memorable, like the Nokia Twist. That way more people would stop to look at all its cool features, especially the way it twists to change functions (from smartphone to music player to 2-megapixel camera and video recorder with 4x zoom). Not to mention its Bluetooth, wireless Web browser, and the... more
The blogosphere is buzzing about the Nokia N73, the latest phone with a built-in 3.2-megapixel camera.

Other features of the N73 include Bluetooth, speakerphone, MP3 player, Web browsing, email, and FM radio.
Behold the latest BlackBerry business phone, the BlackBerry 7130c for Cingular customers. It's got all the stuff you've come to expect from a BlackBerry: Phone, e-mail, internet, messaging with text and images, Bluetooth, MP3 ringtones, fast performance, and sleek design. You can even use it as a tethered modem to connect your laptop or desktop computer to the Internet, so you don't need to carry a wireless PC card. More BlackBerry smartphones.
