There are tons of smartphones available from your carrier, but I think there are 5 that stand out from the crowd this summer. Which is your favorite?
Check out my full ZDNet Smartphones & Cell Phones blog post for my top 5 list.
Samsung was able to launch the Galaxy S III on all the major US wireless carriers and this will easily be the best selling smartphone of the summer.
Nokia's flagship Windows Phone device has some unique styling in the WP world and is priced at $100 or less.
The Nokia Lumia 900 comes in blue, white, black, and pink.
The HTC One X is one of the best pieces of hardware I have ever used and definitely the best from HTC.
HTC launched a One series on T-Mobile, called the One S.
The Apple iPhone 4S will be replaced this fall, but it is still one fantastic phone for the masses.
The iPhone UI is getting a bit dated and the display is smaller than most all other new smartphones, but there are plenty of apps, the display is great, and it captures great photos too.
The Nokia 808 PureView is more of a technology demonstration than a smartphone that will be popular, but you have to give Nokia a tip of the hat with that 41 megapixel camera.
The Nokia 808 PureView runs the latest version of Symbian, Belle, that functions much like Android. It is sold through Amazon in the US and works well on T-Mobile and AT&T.
