9. LG Optimus 7Q

Disguised as a plain old candy bar phone with 800 x 480 pixel capacitive touch screen, the LG Optimus 7Q also hides a QWERTY keyboard that slides in and out of view. This 3.5-inch screen model for Windows Phone 7 includes Outlook integration and can sync with calendar, mail, contacts and Windows Live apps out of the box.

Measuring 4.7 x 2.3 x 0.6 inches, it's not the smallest of the bunch, but it does include a 1GHz processor, 16 GB of memory for storage and another 512MB for running apps. Its five megapixel camera with LED flash can capture video at 720p, and with LG's PlayTo feature, can send (or be sent) media files to (or from) DLNA-DMR devices via its WiFi radio. Works on GSM and UMTS networks.
