We pick the best Smartphones for different categories of users.

The Suit

The Suit is someone who is continuously connected to the office networks sending confidential emails as often as accessing the in-house CRM. The Suit needs a good keyboard and great security on their smartphone along with looks that match their image.

Winner: BlackBerry Bold

Why: Think corporate and you automatically think BlackBerry. With the still best in class push email and security and the best keyboard to type emails, the BlackBerry rightly has the lion’s share in the corporate market

Runner up: Apple’s shiny smartphone has certainly been gaining entry into the corporate space of late. With the sheer number of applications, many of which are business related, the iPhone is the young exec’s choice.


The Beauty Queen

Lets face it- some of us prefer how our Smartphone looks more than what they’re capable of doing. If you are one that treats your Smartphone as a fashion accessory then this is your list.

Winner: BlackBerry Bold (White)

Why: The BlackBerry Bold 9780 in white has certainly become a fashion statement amongst the women in the UAE. RIM has done a good job with the size of the 9780 that fits just right in your hand and sparkles like a diamond.

Runner Up: The iPhone 4 is an extremely slick looking device with a glass front and back and a beautiful minimalistic look that reeks of a premium device.

    I was about to get the Samsung Galaxy S2 then found an iPhone 4 for cheap so I got it instead. Amazing phone indeed in all aspects. I may try the S2 down the road and share my experience comparing them
