Touchscreen phones are finally taking over the world. But it’s not all about the iPhone 3G. There are now stacks of cells with tons of different features, so whether you want one for firing off spreadsheets or taking killer photos, there’s one for you. Read on to find out which one you’ll be stroking in a worrying fashion come Christmas.
You love taking snaps and are gagging for some touchscreen action. The iPhone’s 2MP snapper doesn’t cut it, but the new LG KC910 comes packing a massive 8MP sensor. Not only will it slip easily into your pocket, it’ll also bring an end to the days of you carting round a compact camera.
You live for work, spending your waking hours barking orders and working up presentations for men in pricey suits. The Samsung Omnia is the touchscreen blower for you. It’s got full Windows Mobile, so you can work on docs and spreadsheets as well as being at the cutting edge of gadgetry.
You like sticking out of the crowd and looking cool in front of your brogue–wearing buddies. The HTC Touch Diamond has got plenty of cool points, with a killer touchscreen, stacks of great features and the looks to match. Plus you can laugh at those iPhone–owning sheep, eh?
You love music, especially when it doesn’t cost anything. Nokia’s as–yet–unreleased Tube is coming later this year and is a banker to rock their new Comes With Music service, offering you 2.1 million tracks for nowt. Plus it might just be as cool as it looks in The Dark Knight.
You can’t cope with being offline for more than five minutes. Whisper it, but the iPhone 3G is a bit special when it comes to the web (if you can overlook the lack of Flash), its browser looking and feeling a million miles better than other phones out there. Plus it’s finally got HSDPA, so broadband speeds are a banker.
