You tell us: Which phone do you want from Santa this year?
With Christmas fast approaching and now only a week away, we want to know which phone you will be looking for wrapped under the tree. There's a lot to choose from this year, as we covered in our 2010 Holiday Gift Guide, but which phone do you want? There's no denying that Smartphones are the big thing, and there's even more to choose from then ever before. But that may not be for everyone, and there are still plenty of standard phones out there, some flip, slide, and have QWERTY keyboards.

Here's our top 10 picks (in no particular order) that has something for everyone.....

Motorola DROID X for Verizon Wireless - The DROID X has been the hottest selling smartphone for for Verizon this year, coming with a large 4.3" WVGA display, Android 2.2, 8MP autofocus camera and 720p video recording.

Motorola DROID 2 Global for Verizon Wireless - If you're looking for an Android device that can work around the world, there's the DROID 2 Global, as it's compatible with CDMA and GSM networks. It comes with a 3.7" WVGA display, 5MP camera, and sliding QWERTY keyboard that's a bit more comfortable to use than the one on the DROID PRO. Not only that, but the processor is zippy at 1.2GHz.

LG Cosmos Touch for Verizon Wireless - If you're not looking for a smartphone, but would still like to have a touchscreen and a sliding QWERTY keyboard, there's the Cosmos Touch.

Apple iPhone 4 for AT&T - Even though the iPhone 4 got off to a rocky start, due to the antenna issues, it's still been the top selling AT&T smartphone this year. It's 3.5" retina display packs in a resolution of 640x960 pixels, making images and text sharp and clear. It's 5MP rear camera does good for photos, and the front VGA camera is used for video chats. But what sets the iPhone apart is the iOS software, as it's easy to use and offers a hosts of apps that can be downloaded.

Samsung Focus for AT&T - Windows Phone 7 is the newest smartphone platform to hit the streets from Microsoft, and it shines on the Samsung Focus. The fashionable device features an impressive 4" WVGA Super AMOLED display, 5MP camera, and 8GB of internal memory, while staying thin at only 0.35" thick.

Pantech Laser for AT&T - The Laser is not a smartphone, but don't let that fool you, as it comes with a 3.1" WVGA AMOLED display, 3MP camera, and full sliding QWERTY keyboard.

Samsung Epic 4G for Sprint - If you're in need of an Android smartphone with 4G data, there's the Epic 4G that uses Sprint's WiMAX service. But even if you're area isn't covered by WiMAX yet, the phone is still pretty hot with a 4" WVGA Super AMOLED display, 5MP camera with 720p video, and sliding QWERTY keyboard.

BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 for Sprint - BlackBerry is still heavily used by businesses, and the Curve 3G 9330 continues the tradition. This version comes with a standard 2.4" QVGA display, 2MP camera, and familiar curved QWERTY keyboard.

Google Nexus S for T-Mobile - The long awaited followup to the original and popular Nexus One is the new Nexus S from Google. It is also the first device to come with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and comes with a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 4" WVGA Super AMOLED display, 5MP camera, and 16GB of internal memory.

LG Optimus T for T-Mobile - For the beginning Android user, there is the Optimus T, which is free with contract. It may not have all the high-end features of the Nexus S, but is still a good starter smartphone with a 3.2" HVGA display, 600MHz processor, 3MP camera, and comes with Android 2.2

Are any of these phones on your Christmas list, or is there another phone you want Santa to bring you? Let is know in the comment section below!
