Just in a few short weeks we will be inundated with numerous unveilings of Android, iOS and Windows Phone handsets that will usher the mobile war in a new phase as we have the perfect storm this year...

Ony that the article refers to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, with is a phablet, not a tablet.
And on the same note: the HTC 6435 is probably a tablet, not a phone... I guess that's why it's not getting much votes.

The htc is definitely a phone htc would not make a tablet and give it a phone model number if u did any research u would of found that out the tbolt is 6400 and I think the Rezound is 6430 or sumn so this is next in line.... It's people like you posting misinformation causing the confusion in the first place!

I just said "probably", and we´ll see that when it comes out. I still doubt they´ll create a pone with 1920x1080 resolution. What screen size would they use for it?
It does not make really sense to have it for screens under 7 inches wich already gives a 314 dpi. And 7 inches is alredy a tablet.

Nexus phones won't come till October. One and a half to two months later than the bunch that will be announced end of this month.
I guesll there will be a poll jus for them.

I expect to back the smallest group and am pumped for Samsungs Odyssey. Love my Focus S and it has sung like an Opera star since I got it. Will be happy to give Nokia a chance to earn my cash as well. (Noticed PA left off HTC's flagship WP 8 off the list.)

On Android side I am really excited to see what Sony pumps out. I think they could easily become an Android sensation. I expect excellent hardware, leaving their UI as the X factor. Also interested to see if the Note 2 is as much of a monster success as the first one was (pun, of course, completely intended).

Hope iPhone is something good. Apple needs to challenge itself and take a risk.

In my fully honest opinion I think the Apple IPhone will get the most sales. I would choose the Galaxy Note in a heartbeat,but like usual there are so many apple fans out there and if they bring a 4 inch display, apple users would be like "How did I live with this small display?!" and buy that instantly. However, I think the iPhone will only do good in sales but the hardware department probably not so much.

No Galaxy Nexus 2, and no Motorola Razr MAXX HD? What good is this poll this way?

Those sound much nicer than anything up there... lets hope for those soon. Of what is up there the note 2 sounds best. I really hope for a vzw version of the Note though, then I could get work to order me one to play with.

This will be a war of epic proportions. My wife and I have our contracts ending in November. Let's see who proves the best bang for buck to grab our vote.

As a person who's eyes are no longer young, the only one that even comes close to interesting me is the Note 2.

It has simmered for a year and the updates look good. As for the rest, the smaller the screen, the less likely they are to actually be usable. That simple.

However, I will be waiting until it actually has Jelly Bean ready for the Note 2 before I buy. No point waiting through ICS when it will not do a few of the things I want. I'll wait, just to be sure. That will also assure me of a decent selection fo accessories by the time I am ready to buy.

Wow thats the first good reason i have ever read to buy a galaxy note: poor eyesight. I too have this condition but would never buy something that cant fit in my pocket.
