The iPhone and HTC devices were the most discussed and most popular of 2007

The news slows down during the holiday season before the big rush of CES and it gives us some time to reflect on the past year. I'll be posting a year in review for mobile devices shortly, but wanted to first post lists of the most popular and most discussed posts here on the ZDNet Mobile Gadgeteer blog. As you can see, the iPhone was the subject of 4 of the top 10 most discussed posts with HTC devices also capturing 4 of the most popular posts. The other two covered Windows Mobile 6 and Google Calendar syncing. It was interesting to see that one of my older posts from 2006 (HTC TyTN review) was in the top 10 for 2007. I believe that shows how popular this high-powered touch-screen Windows Mobile device was in 2006 and 2007.

HTC Advantage

As far as the most discussed posts go, the iPhone generated a lot of conversation with 7 of the top 10 posts, including the top 6 most discussed. Spots 7, 8, and 9 were blog posts on HTC Windows Mobile devices. I post quite a bit about S60 devices, but think the lack of availability in the United States of these amazing mobile devices keeps people from experiencing them.
