Pick Our Next WM Smartphone and Review (and Win!)

We'll be posting up a full review of the Motorola Q9h and the Mogul next week (and even a mini-review of the Motorola MC35). There'll be more smackdowns to come too (intra-carrier style), but for now I'm itching to try something new out. I've already said that I prefer the Q9h to the BlackJack II, but as sbono13 pointed out in the comments, the BJII is a full $200 bucks cheaper (with contract) than the Q9h... so I'm thinking I should give that device a full rundown as well. Toss in the fact that I have (unfairly?) poo-poohed the Pantech Duo and the Samsung i760 and suddenly we're looking at a whole smorgasbord of Windows Mobile smartphones. That's a situation I love, but I can't decide.

So, what to do about that itch? Let you decide. Head on over to the thread associated with this post and vote in the poll. We'll leave the poll open through Tuesday, February 5th. We're also making your choices public so we can track 'em, not because we're nefarious, but because we'll choose one lucky voter from the top choice to win a $100 coupon at the WMExperts Store!

After the break - see the smartphones sitting on my desk, waiting on my eternal judgment (and the full rules to the contest). To vote, just click on this here link

Here are the

  • Pantech Duo
  • BlackJack II
  • AT&T Tilt
  • T-Mobile Shadow
  • T-Mobile Dash

I'd like to stick to phones that have carrier support in the US, if you're wondering about the choices above.

  5. The winner will be chosen at random from all the people who voted for the smartphone that receives the most votes (in other words, there's strategy involved!)

  • Cross Platform is definitely the place for this. :)
  • I say go with the Sprint Touch as it will be good for both Sprint Users and for the Verizon Users looking for information on Verizon's Upcoming 6900 release.
  • I agree. Sprint Touch. Next the blackjack 2.
  • Since I'm dying to try a Touch myself, that's my vote!
  • Lets throw a vote for the Sprint Touch.
  • don't forget you need to vote in the poll at the top of this thread:http://discussion.wmexperts.com/showthread.php?t=160238
  • I'm putting my vote on the Blackjack since so many people say it's so good.
  • i agree with the sprint touch,cuz i just got the ppc6800 and am thinking maybe i should take it back and GET the touch. would like more info on it.
  • The Samsung. Let me know why you hate it...
  • The samsung for sure; it should be good?
  • cmon, yall know its all about the touch.. it even has the best commercials, lolhttp://youtube.com/watch?v=AqxCkTt6ZCI
  • Sprint Touch
  • samsung sch i760
  • I would love to see a female oriented Pantech review since I am trying to get the wife interested in it over her A707. I am close since it is coming in red now, but she has some kind of block against WM phones and won't touch my BJ1
  • The Touch has it.
    Even coming from a huge Treo fan, I thought the physical keyboard was a must but with a little 3rd magic the Sprint Touch kiss butt.
    Fast, nice size screen, thin/light, good battery life. I can’t complain.
  • I too vote for the Sprint Touch, and not just because I am satisfied Sprint customer for 9 years.
    I demoed a Sprint Touch for Three days when it was just released, and have to say that I got pretty fast with the on screen keyboard. If the screen were larger I would have traded my Treo 700wx for it.
    My next vote would be for the Moto Q 9c from Sprint.
  • ha ha...that video is great bluef....i havent seen it yet where i live. thanks for the post. now i really think i should go for the touch and take back the 6800
  • I agree with most of them. Go with the Touch!
  • Looks like the touch is it. ...if you haven't voted yet, though, the contest ends at midnight eastern tonight.
  • Congrats to blue4shizzle!
