re: 10 Best And Worst Cellphones Of All Time
You now that I have to add one to the list, the Razor, I t was cutting edge for its time. Not to mention a fraction of the size of other cell phones on the market at that time. I would have to agree with the other commenters, refreshing the whole page for a slide show is a ridiculous amount of time wasted. I almost dread reading these articles, because I believe they are set up to be quick reads but go against time saving. I have also read several article with comments about this issue, but nothing seems to be changing.

It seems these slide shows are degenerating into only photos. This one desperately needs text to explain which ones the author thinks are best and worst. Also, the date and model information should be provided.

re: 10 Best And Worst Cellphones Of All Time
You left out the phone that started the candybar craze which dominated the decade even more than the clamshells and blackberry phones: The tiny Nokia 82xx series (like the 8210 and 8260). The 82xx series were thin, small, and awesome phones and everyone had one variant of the candybar or another.

Also, although it's a good phone, the Galaxy SIII is not revolutionary in any way and certainly does not belong on this list. What exactly sets it apart from the iPhone? Samsung has done an amazing job of cloning the "design of the moment." They did it with the candybar phones that Nokia started, then with the Razr clamshells, then with Blackberry (which they went as far as to name the Blackjack!) and finally with the Galaxy phones. None of them were revolutionary nor belong on this list... even if they were decent phones.

Levon,
OGM. You are so right. I wanted to view the slide show and read the article. I would suggest that who ever set up the slide show needs to have their head examined. Who in the hell refreshes an entire HTML page with each click of the slide. What a bozo. After I finish this post I am going to bail-out and find something else interesting.

Mr. Bertolucci needs to go pay the IT or marketing department a visit.

What about Worst Slide Show software of all time - with Information Week's vintage, "refresh the whole page," at #1?

StarTAC did not fade, it became impossible to get one. When found on eBay, getting Sprint to connect it, supposedly thanks to number portability rules, was another hurdle. The bloated, color-screen Timeport could not be read in daylight, while the fragile KRZR ("Spock's Coffin") was snubbed by the "Worst" list. The Photon is not bad, unless you want to speak with someone.

Hey Motorola, I don't need a too-small computer, I need my StarTAC! And not that Sanyo clone you're selling in Korea that is nothing like a StarTAC. I want my hockey puck back!
