Continuing on with our Best of Polls for the year, I must say that 2008 was a battleground year for cell phone superiority; usual nemeses iPhone and BlackBerry pulled out the big guns — Apple released the iPhone 3G and RIM responded to the challenge with the Bold and Storm.

Not to be outdone, a little company named Google (maybe you've heard of it) launched its first phone, the G1, running on the Android platform, and made by HTC, which also launched the Touch Diamond. And just this week, Nokia came out, guns blazing, with its new N97.

I know what mine is — it's nestled in my bag right now — but it's been an exciting year for phones, especially of the smart variety. What's your fave?
