The Best SmartPhone of 2006



2006 was a big year for Smart Phones. smart phones, with the launch of devices such as the RIM BlackBerry Pearl, Cingular 8525, and the Palm Treo 680.

When Bonnie Cha, Senior Associate Editor of CNet was asked to choose the best smartphone of 2006, she found the choice quite daunting. As we all know, there are two components that make up a great cellphone or in this case, smartphone experience. The actual mobile device and the mobile service provider.

So what did she decide and why?

It comes down to personal preferences; are the features of the phone more important to you, or is reliable coverage?

For Bonnie, it came down to the choice between the T-Mobile Dash and the Cingular 8525. She chose the Dash "for its design, which plays a big part in my buying decision, but at the expense of losing the 3G speed of the Cingular 8525".

The challenge was then put to the users with the combined results giving a clear winner - the RIM Blackberry 8703e. We combined the scores of CNet and Users to give an average rating below.
