Consumer Reports places iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G as numbers 1 and 2 in smartphone ratings
Consumer Reports ranked the current crop of smartphones. The first two places went to iPhones with the new 3GS coming in number 1 and the 3G ranking number 2 in a tie with Samsung's Omnia. There was a three-way tie for 3rd between the BlackBerrys' Storm and Bold and the G1. 4th place went to the Palm Pre and the BlackBerry Curve in a tie.

Commenting on the first place model, the magazine said that the 3GS showed "strong performance in everything but voice quality. Consumer Reports decided to blame the handset for that issue although it could be a problem related to the AT&T 3G network. On the positive side, Consumer Reports praised the device for it's superior web browsing, navigation, multimedia and battery life. And while the Pre finished well behind the iPhone, reviewers were pleased with the multitasking ability of the phone.
