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.....
