With smartphones soaring in popularity in recent years, it is interesting to look back and review the best models of 2009. From iPhone to Palm Pre; here is five of the best:
5. Palm Pre – Called a "Blackberry Killer" in a few quarters, Palm Pre introduced a new new smartphone approach in 2009. Release Palm Web OS launched the user interface as the first priority and made Palm Pre a really useful and versatile smartphone. A bad point of Palm Pre is the case with its battery life, according to many users.
4. HTC Touch Pro2 – Installing HTC Touch Pro2 behind HTC Hero is hard to do, but I just feel it. The Touch Pro2 comes with a 3.2MP camera, qwerty keyboard and Windows Mobile OS – three features that are better available in HTC Hero (in my opinion). The best thing about HTC Touch Pro2 though, is the larger resolution of the screen.
3. HTC Hero – Although similar to HTC Touch Pro2, HTC Hero has one big difference – Android OS. The two HTC phones were released at similar times, but the hero was packed with 5MP camera and Google Android, which puts it ahead of the manufacturer's competitors. The OS is smooth, sleek and contains a lot of cool features. Other than that, HTC Touch Pro2 and HTC Hero are pretty similar.
2. iPhone – Top 2 smartphones in this list are predictable, some might say, but that's not to deny that they are current leaders. The iPhone continues to increase the popularity it deserves, because Apple really works to present its star product during the Christmas season. Music, video, web – iPhone can do everything. As a phone, it may not be the best in the world (in terms of phone calls and text), but it is certainly the perfect one; applications.
1. RIM Blackberry – The iPhone may be knocking on the door, but RIM is still strong and continues to deliver outstanding BlackBerry smartphone. Considering the business market at the beginning, BlackBerry brings you all the things you need to take on the go. While iPhone focuses on offering users the perfect device, BlackBerry is doing so very well. Email and conference call has been perfect by RIM, so much that BlackBerry is still the leader in smartphone devices.
Thus you have – five smartphones that have evolved and continue to take the world by storm throughout 2009. IPhone is set to become the most popular smartphone in accordance with many reports, but at the moment, Blackberry is still regulating all of them.
