Earlier this week, we got the ball rolling on our fun best of polls when I asked you: What is your favorite social networking site of 2009? Well now I'm turning the attention to another popular topic of '09 — cell phones! Last year seemed to be all about the iPhone 3G, but this year, we not only got our hands on a new iPhone 3GS, but some pretty fancy BlackBerrys, Android handsets, and impressive smartphones from Palm. There was certainly a lot of pretty new smartphones to choose from, but which one did you like the best?
Over the past few weeks, I've been trying to get prepped for the holidays with my gift guides, but now that it's December, I am finally realizing that my shopping time is quickly dwindling! If you're like me (hello — last minute shopper!), don't stress, because there's still time to get everything on your lists. Need some more ideas? Here are my must haves for this month that are sure to spoil at least one geek in your life.
Since a good majority of you have been checking out the BlackBerry Bold 9700, you'll be happy to know that it is now available from T-Mobile. This tiny but mighty phone packs WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth functionality and a 3.2-megapixel camera.
You can either get it for $200 on the Even More plan (a 2-year plan), or $449 on an Even More Plus Plan (no contract).
This past week was a busy one with cell phone chatter, as we learned about three new phones that will be making their way to store shelves very soon. For instance, the new and improved BlackBerry Storm2 has just gone on sale in Verizon stores across the US and will cost $180 on a two-year contract after a $100 mail-in rebate. Meanwhile, the fashionable Palm Pixi, which costs $99, will be coming to Sprint stores on Nov. 15. And last but not least, the beautiful BlackBerry Bold 9700, which doesn't have a release date just yet, but is rumored to be hitting T-Mobile and AT&T networks this November. With all this talk about smartphones, I'm interested in knowing whether or not one of these handsets has made it to your wish list or if there's one in particular you can't wait to see in person? If so, which one?
When RIM wasn't unveiling its latest BlackBerry Bold this week, it was introducing cool new apps for the BlackBerry, unveiling a fancy new watch and sneaking new Storms into some Best Buy stores. If you want to catch up on the latest and greatest from BlackBerry this past week, here's a roundup of what you may have missed.
