You don't care about the OS, you just want a touchscreen phone. Isn't it lucky then that we've corralled all our top-scoring phones into this one round-up for you?

From Android to BlackBerry to Windows Phone 7, if you want a touch phone, we've got you covered. The elephant in the room is the iPhone 4, which didn't make the cut based on score alone. If you're an iOS fan though, it should always be a consideration.

  • I notice Nokia doesnt get a mention. Now, I am one of the first in line to bag Nokia but after carefully investigating all the options recently I (rather begrudgingly at first) settled on the N8. Why? Because I like to travel and I like to travel light! Having recently got back from Europe I am so glad I did not get a phone as dependent on having an internet connection as Android phones are. Wifi is patchy (including some hotels that advertise wifi but when you get there they dont have it or charge a fortune for it) and roaming data rates are prohibitively expensive.
    As a traveller's phone the N8 with on-board maps, fantastic camera and video camera is hard to beat for the price.
    I should point out that I barely use any apps that did not come with the phone except for a few mainstream ones (e.g. Opera, Skype) so I personally place little value on availability of 3rd party apps.

  • Why the 'Editors Choice' award on nearly half the phones featured? Are you just hedging your bets?
