LG VX9900 enV
The LG's split personality is its forte. On one side, there's a 2MP camera with a protected AF lens and flash; on the other, a phone keypad and tiny monitor. Flip it open for a powerful PDA -- with a color LCD, large keyboard, and controls for high-speed web surfing, slide shows, MP3s, and streaming video. Includes VZ Navigator for cellular GPS, microSD card slot, and Bluetooth stereo support. Phone: High-speed 3G EVDO data, CDMA 800 MHz voice. Size: 4.6x2.1x0.8 in., 4.6 oz. Street price: $199 with two-year Verizon contract. (www.verizonwireless.com)
The 2MP camera is so-so, but the iPhone's 3.5-inch touch screen can't be beat: With help from Apple's robust OS X, you can e-mail photos, check your calendar, view web pages, play iTunes, and type on the soft keyboard. Sensors rotate the display, turn off the screen when the phone's at your ear, and adjust brightness to ambient light. Available in 4- or 8GB versions. Phone: Quad-band GSM, EDGE data, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.0. Size: 4.5x2.4x0.5 in., 4.8 oz. Street price: $499 for 4GB version. (www.cingular.com)
