Carrier: AT&T and T-Mobile
Pros: It offers both a touch screen and a keypad, a sliding screen that tilts upward for video viewing, Bluetooth 2.0 and 5-megapixel camera with flash. It also has 32 gigabytes of memory that can balloon to 48 gigabytes through a microSD expansion slot. Its built-in apps include a YouTube-specific player and AP news, while its world-roaming feature makes it a low-maintenance global travel companion.
Cons: Did you see the price? Sure, you're getting an unlocked phone, but if you're dropping six Franklins on a smartphone, it shouldn't have a touch screen that's more difficult to use than those of less expensive counterparts like the iPhone and Pre. Its Symbian OS is starting to look aged compared to the offerings of Apple, Palm and Google.-- Reported by Jason Notte in Boston.
