The year 2009 saw the introduction of several new phones in various mobile platforms . But only a few managed to impress us !
Presenting the Top 10 phones of 2009 (not in any specific order)
The Maemo platform just needs more apps to make the experience better. But as a first attempt the device is certainly revolutionary !
But we manged to the review the phone for all you die hard apple fans !
If the iPhone was to get some serious competition in the US market , it was the Droid which ousted the iPhone for the Times Gadget of the Year
The MotoDroid aka Milestone is one of the best Android phones in the Market right now
Symbian is here to stay if its as stable and snappy as on Nokia E72 . Built on the success of the Nokia E71 the E72 is one great all rounder device.
Nokia launched it for just 22989 in India and the price has fallen to around 20,000 and in our opinion it’s a great buy !
Nokia N97 Mini
And it won the GSMA award for Handset of the year
Samsung Omnia HD
You might even think Samsung managed to pack in one of their LCD TVs onto this phone. Amazing All-rounder phone running on Symbian S60 5th Edition. The HD Video Recording is great and the Camera captures some amazing pics ! Sadly you need to be hacker in-order to get a Firmware update for the phone which will give you Kinetic scrolling soon.
Sony Ericsson Satio
Well , this phone looks more like a Sony Digicam as it sports a 12MP Camera. It was the first phone to enter the 12 Megapixel Arena. This phone along with the Samsung Omnia HD demonstrated the power of Symbian on a non-Nokia device.
Blackberry which was often seen as a Corporate device made a brave move by offering the 8520 at the Rs.15000 level .You still have to pay for the Blackberry Subscription though. It sold so well that RIM ran out of stocks in the country. It made owning a Blackberry very affordable.
The Samsung Corby has been one of Samsung’s most successful handsets in recent times and it’s great hit amongst youth who want a simple phone with chic looks. Though the phone looks girly, even men can use it like FoneArena’s Aditya reviewed the Corby . Looks like Samsung made Corby a brand name rather than a Model name, as we have the CorbyPlus, CorbyPro , CorbyTxt,CorbyMate CorbyPOP and CorbySpeed CDMA
