    I thought this was a pretty big win, and then I started thinking about the alternative competitors. I've tried a LOT of smartphones, and it doesn't surprise me that the 3Gs tops that list. Not one darn bit. Kudos to Apple though. Consumer Reports has a lot of sway when it comes to people making financial decisions, much like CNET.

    sarcasm. the iphone 3gs release was such a huge hit, just like the iphone 2g was, and just like the iphone 3g.

    it's not surprising at all that it was number one on the consumer reports.

    Sorry, homeslice. High sales have nothing to do with Consumer Reports ratings.

    Just saw your sarcasm. But really, many times something can sell great and be slammed by CR.

    BB Storm is a surprise. I thought people hated it.

    This is about quality of voice, data, the features of the handset, etc (however Consumer Reports decided to test it), and not about popularity with consumers.

    It certainly helps. What would really help is if the next issue of Consumer Reports on newsstands had the iPhone3GS on the front cover. :)

    Also, I like how the article says "In the meantime, it's another nice piece of recognition for Apple, and a reminder that competition and innovation are alive and well in the smart phone sector."
