    Okay, just out of curiosity, what is the best mobile phone out there. I just got done playing with a RIM Pearl. WOW. I love that phone.

    Oh, and hey, RIM is totally copying the Mac OS.

    Anyhoo - the Chocolate is also a blatant rip off of the ipod scroll wheel - except that it doesnt really work...

    So, with all of these options, is there a favorite? Is anyone still impressed with a Razr? Whatever happened to the SLVR? or are we all just waiting for Apple to rescue us?

    Ive tried to put this poll together with the best options, but something tells me that "other" will win out...

    so, whats the best phone out there?

    I have the Motorola L2 (the SLVR's cheaper cousin) and I love the profile.

    What's so great about the Motorola's? I have yet to find a moto that isn't totally useless in some area (such as battery life, interface, build quality). I do prefer the european and asian cell phone brands to be honest. There's some amazing looking new Samsung cell phones on the market here. Thinner than the SLVR or RAZR and much better looking too! As far as smartphones go. Anything is fine as long as it's not running windows. The new Blackberry Pearl does look very neat, only too bad it doesn't have WiFi connectivity.

    I hate motorola. I currently have the L2 as well and it is the biggest piece of junk. I does nothing, I can't sync it, I can't really put dates in the calendar. It is just useless. I do not recommend getting one. I'm going to make the jump to the Nokia E62 after christmas. I've always been impressed by the finnish and their phone making abilities.

    I haven't yet found a phone that has a good interface that I enjoy using. Best ones are the Nokia ones, but still isn't the best! Thats why I'm waiting for Apple!

    If it's not iSync compatible it's a no go. Which rules out anything Samsung or Blackberry (though Mark/Space might sort the Blackberry thing out).

    I haven't had any issues with Motorola phones - since I left Verizon Wireless. Things like iSync, file transfer, etc. work well now that I'm using a T-Mobile Motorola phone. Verizon cripples their phones to force use of their for-fee extra services.
