The 10 Coolest Smartphones Of 2010, So Far


Apple iPhone 4

Carrier: AT&T

Price: $199.99 (16-GB edition)

Released: June 24

Does Apple's new iPhone really need an introduction, after weeks -- no, months -- of breathless fanfare? According to Apple, iPhone 4 sales exceeded 1.7 million in the phone's first three days on sale, breaking Apple records and becoming the most successful product launch in company history. Struggles abounded -- preorder and launch difficulties from AT&T -- but they hardly derailed Apple's momentum. Oh, and it's a pretty nifty phone, too: 9.3 mm (and 24 percent thinner than the most recent iPhone 3GS), ARM-based A4 processor (same as iPad's), a realtime video chatting application called FaceTime, a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture capability, a second, front-facing camera, and a 3.5-inch, 960 x 460 display.
