Philips Xenium X830

Philips’ Xenium X830 is like a marathon runner, with an incredible 1.5 month standby time; it also features a 3″ touchscreen and 5 MP camera, but sacrifices 3G for battery life.

Samsung SCH-W760

Samsung’s SCH-W760 is a fairly standard slider phone, but its killer feature is a night-vision IR camera that lets you teleconference in the dark–nefarious purposes notwithstanding.

Verizon HTC Ozone

Verizon HTC Ozone

An answer to the Dash 3G and Snap, Verizon Wireless’ HTC Ozone smartphone has similar features–WinMo 6.1, 3G, Wi-Fi and full QWERTY–but its best feature is the price: $50.

T-Mobile Dash 3G

T-Mobile Dash 3G

Due out in July, T-Mobile’s trusty Dash smartphone gets bumped up to 3G speeds and features a new trackball; otherwise, it keeps its full QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi and WinMo 6.1.
