Top 5 iPhone Competitors

Since the introduction of the Apple iPhone on January the 9th, the world has gone touch pad crazy, touch pad technology is the way of the future and many companies have heard the call and made their own touch pad phones in direct competition with the iPhone.
This is a top five list of iPhone Competitors, some of the phones are the real deal, some are just concepts at the moment, all are cool.

1 - HTC Touch

HTC Touch

The HTC Touch uses TouchFLO touchscreen technology that was developed by HTC. It runs Windows Mobile 6 and a rotating “cube” shows you icons for your contacts, music, and more. Unfortunately there’s no Wi-Fi which is one of the down-sides to this phone, but it is fairly affordable at $250 from Sprint after instant savings and a mail-in rebate.






2 - LG Voyager

LG Voyager

The LG Voyager is priced at about $299.99 from Verizon Wireless with a 2-year contract. Of course it’s touchscreen like the iPhone but also includes a physical keyboard that pops-out. Overall it does look pretty sleek and includes Ev-DO support, but doesn’t have Wi-Fi.







3 - Samsung Instinct

Samsung Instinct

Samsung’s Instinct hasn’t reached the stores yet, but from the looks if it, it’ll be a great competitor to the iPhone. Gizmodo says that it may be the best stab at the iPhone yet! As far as size goes, in dimension and weight, it’s about the same as the iPhone. Even with battery life, it’s right up there with with 5.75 hours of talk-time. Sprint will be the one to carry this one for an estimated $200-$250.






4 - Garmin Nuvifone

Garmin Nuvifone

Sometime this year in the 3rd quarter we’ll be seeing the Garmin Nuvifone hit the market. The phone will be big on GPS and helping you navigate, and will feature an on-screen keyboard like the iPhone. Just a few days ago, rumor started floating around that it will be sold to AT&T subscribers for a whopping $500! While it may be pricey, that GPS could be worth it!






5 - Sony Ericsson Xperia X1

Sony Ericsson Xperia X1

Yet another phone that is expected later this year is the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1. It’ll have a full QWERTY keyboard, and will run on the Windows Mobile 6 operating system. What will be unique with this phone is a “paneled” interface and an “optical” joystick for easy web scrolling. The price is expected to be over $400, so it’ll definitely be on the higher-end of the pricing spectrum.

LG KC910:8 MP camera phone:picture and features(launched internationally)


LG announced that they will be naming their 8-megapixel full-touchscreen-operated cameraphone after the famous French artist Renoir. The new name of the LG KC910 doesn't change anything in the specs sheet and is only meant to add a certain artistic flavor to the otherwise high-end feature package.

Equipped with an 8 megapixel auto focus camera, the LG KC910 Renoir is the first feature phone of the company to sport Wi-Fi connectivity. In addition it extends the functionality of the Viewty with GPS, which allows geo-tagging of the photos.

The sweet VGA videos at 30 fps and slow motion 120 fps QVGA videos are also there. A xenon flash is also on board to facilitate photography in low-light conditions. The display of the new LG Renoir will be a 3" 262K color one with a resolution of 240 x 400 pixels.

Connectivity is also duly covered in the LG KC910 Renoir, which has support for all the four GSM bands. 3G with HSDPA is also available and so are Bluetooth and USB. The final extras of the KC910 include microSD card slot, TV-out support, Xvid and DivX video playback and Dolby sound for the music.

Touch Pro Diamond HTC mobileHTC has recently announced a touch screen plus a slide out QWERTY keypad, with navigating tricky Windows Mobile menus and tapping out e-mails. It is just like the Diamond.

Touch pro and diamonds are just the latest in Taiwan. Both are identical to their respective specs. Both phones can access speedy HSDPA data networks, do Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and they each pack in Opera HTML Web browsers (if phone is turned sideways it switches pages to landscape view. Also GPS and 3.2MP digital cameras. For video conferencing the Touch Pro adds a front-facing VGA camera.) The Touch Pro has 512MB of internal memory, compared to 4GB of diamond. Both handsets come with slots for micro SD memory expansion.
Both the phones have a screen of 2.8 inch, VGA touch-enabled display with HTC’s snazzy TouchFlo UI, an animated 3D interface allowing you to access your contact, event, music, pictures, phone widget, and calling features with swipes of your finger tips.
Both Diamond and Touch Pro run the professional edition of Windows Mobile 6.1 a powerful and highly configurable mobile OS.
The Touch Pro’s slide-out, five-row QWERTY keypad is handy while tapping out messages or editing mobile Office documents.
The Touch Pro’s slide out QWERTY keypad is 4 by 2 by 0.7 inch thick. It is bulky and it weighs 5.8 ounces.
Though the Touch Pro is worthy competitor to Sony Ericsson’s upcoming Xperia X1, with Window Mobile 6.1, a handset with slide out keypad, with its innovative, panel-based touch interface.
Expected price for Touch Pro is about $900.
HTC promises that North American version of the Touch Pro will come by year end. And Europe, Asia and the Middle East will get the phone by late summer.
