>> You might be tempted to get an iPhone. It's not the only one in the market. Natali Del Conte, from our partners CNET is here with some others. Good morning.
>> Good morning to you.
>> So, you know, I've seen this one. the Samsung advertised on television.
>> Right. This is...
>> What does it have?
>> This is -- if you don't wanna change to AT&T and you really like Sprint because you're on Sprint. This is Sprint offering the Samsung Instinct. And it has something that the iPhone doesn't have. It has a landscape keyboard, which is kind of nice.
>> It also has multimedia messaging. And it also runs 3G.
>> Which is the new in email access...
>> That what we call, the iPhone App.
>> Right. So, it's fast to surf.
>> What is this one?
>> This is the LG Dare. So, this is Verizon's offering. And it has a much better camera than either the Instinct or the iPhone.
>> It's got 3.2 megapixel.
>> Because the iPhone people complain about the camera.
>> Yeah, the camera is not great. I'm hoping that, you know, maybe the next generation...
>> And the next one -- right.
>> Will have a better camera.
>> So this one has a good camera.
>> It has a really camera and it also does video capture.
>> Oh there you go.
>> Yeah, so that's kind of a cool thing. And it does...
>> For the newsman, I'm in the field.
>> Right. You can get the story.
>> Right then and there.
>> Now, what's this one here.
>> This is the HTC Diamond. It's not on any carrier right now, but you can buy it unlocked and then put it on your own carrier.
>> On your own carrier, okay.
>> It's expensive.
>> It's around $700. So you have to get it and then put it on your phone, but it's kind of a sexier phone, it's got a VGA screen, so it's much nicer in terms of the quality of the picture.
>> It also has a 3.2-megapixel camera.
>> And it's got a kind of nice 3D interface, which is kind of fun.
>> Oh, that's very cool. And last, but not least.
>> Not at all least. This is the BlackBerry.
>> This is the Curve. It's about a year old. But BlackBerry's coming out with a new one, which will be a Bold.
>> It's called the BlackBerry Bold.
>> It will also be bold.
>> And it's gonna have a better camera, as well, there will be 3G.
>> And then later on this year, we're expecting the BlackBerry Thunder, which will also have touch screen.
>> That means, there's a lot of -- there are serious BlackBerry loyalty.
>> There are.
>> Yes and there's much anticipation, now what's the Thunder.
>> The Thunder is gonna be a little bit more the iPhone-like. It's gonna have a touch screen and I believe it will have a keyboard as well. But you're right, there are a lot of BlackBerry Loyalists and I think BlackBerry is kind of synonymous with work.
>> so i think a lot of people get really attached to their BlackBerry.
>> Yeah and the other thing about the iPhone though is that you can use this now for the first time.
>> The Inyternet that you use at work that normally ends up in the BalckBerry, you can put on your iPhone.
>> Right. So we're gonna see these two battle it out I think.
>> They're doing this year. It's gonna be a fun year for phones. Easy now, that's my buzzer.
>> Oops, sorry.
>> Dopn't crush my screen.
