Smartphone Holiday Buyer’s Guide

Smartphones are hot this year, and there’s likely someone on your gift list who would want one. Phones make good presents: they are both fun and useful, cool and practical. In fact, a recent poll from SodaHead.com about what people wanted as gifts this holiday season found that 39% of respondents are hoping for an Apple iPhone 4S.

There are a range of options available, however, from the most powerful (and expensive) to more modest handsets that can be had for free when signing a new wireless contract. This includes devices running the Android OS, Apple’s iPhone, Microsoft’s Windows Phone, and the venerable BlackBerry, so there’s something for everyone.
