Cell Phones Holiday Gift Guide 2010
Motorola DROID X
Honestly, who wouldn't like to enjoy the awesomeness of the DROID X, probably the most pumped-up device in Verizon's Android squad. This Android 2.2 smartphone can give you lots of cool features like an enormous 4.3” screen and super-fast performance, combined with a pretty good 8MP camera. Add to that its full Flash Player 10.1 support for desktop-like internet browsing, and you've got an all-round great package for hardcore users.
Samsung's Galaxy S line is quickly gaining momentum, and Verizon's Fascinate is a wonderful example for the smartphone's top of the line capabilities. Not only does it sport a larger than life 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, along with a pretty decent 5MP camera with HD video recording, but it also has a powerful Hummingbird chipset that's reportedly faster than a real hummingbird.
Motorola DROID PRO
Forgive us for suggesting yet another Android phone, but we just couldn't help but include the just-released, business-centric DROID PRO, which is packing both a 3.1" touchscreen and a front-facing QWERTY keyboard, mixed up with all the wonders of the Froyo software. What's also important though is that in terms of design, the Motorola DROID PRO surely makes a statement, as it clearly stands out from the rest of the smartphone crop in Verizon's catalog. Reserved for the good businessperson in the family.
RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G
While we are on the topic of business, here's another intriguing device - the Curve 3G, which is a pretty decent smartphone for those users camping alongside BlackBerry. In addition to its pretty good overall functionality, of course, it features a wonderful QWERTY keyboard that would be perfect for lots of messages and emails. Besides, the handset is updateable to BlackBerry OS 6, so it easily makes for one future-proof present.
Casio G'zOne Ravine
Finally, if it's a more straightforward and simple device that you're looking for, then we would recommend that you take a look at the Casio G'zOne Ravine - a rugged flip phone that will withstand some beating, plus it has some additional goodies, such as GPS, microSDHC slot for lots of music and a 3.2MP camera with flash.
These are some pretty exciting phones that Verizon can offer its users, but the world doesn't end with Big Red. Next stop – AT&T!

Wait, you gave the C7 the nod, but not the N8??? Seriously? The camera wasn't worth it to you? Damn.

I was disappointed not to see the Motorola Flipout on the AT&T list. It's a capable yet affordable Android phone.
And no HTC EVO 4G? It's Sprint's best phone.

For T-Mobile I'd have suggested the HTC MyTouch 4G hands down. It's definitely by far the best phone that T-mobile has right now and I would even say better than all the other phones out there at this time except maybe the Samsung Epic 4G. But I give the MyTouch 4G the edge due to Wifi-Calling.

to gift a prepaid cellphone this holiday season is a great way to go, a great present for a friend or loved one. I'm getting one for my little sister, her first cellphone,and I'm keeping an eye for Black Friday sales, I'm sure Tracfone will have great promotions for the holidays, they always have. Anyone knows about any good sales on prepaids?

@BlakeDaze what kind off phone are you searching for? I heard that Sear will be having a cool sale on Tracfone for $15 on a samsng and that's a great starter phone for a kid, also kmart will be having a good deal on motorolas for 50% off on Net 10, they are all prepaid and good choices. Happy Shopping!

Why??? The Blackberry is on the list. I am really agree if Apple Iphone 4, Motorola Droid and Samsung Phone are on the list. It's really a bias choice. Why Google Nexus One, Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 and Nokia N8 are not in the list??? Blackberry advantage over the 3 other phone I list out are only Blackberry conact and push e-mail. What a bias!!!!!!!!!

Don't you Phone Arena management and developers care a bit for the Asian countries..
That's why I love GSM Arena much more than this silly PhoneArena..
Such a bad holiday gift guide... how did you categorize ????
Just have a look at the Holiday Guide from GSM Arena and learn which categories matter to the wider world..
