Those who favor the exceptional e-mailing and messaging capabilities of a finally have a sleek touchscreen: 's BlackBerry Storm under the network. Yet this one keeps the all-confirming click of a physical button with a screen that actually depresses. The 3.25-inch LCD has a hi-res display that automatically switches between landscape and portrait mode as you turn the phone, which then switches between full qwerty and RIM's SureType keyboards.

Included with the 5.5-ounce device are a 3.2-megapixel camera with flash, video, autofocus and zoom; 1GB onboard memory, expandable via microSD slot; built-in GPS navigator; and Bluetooth capabilities.
