Welcome to CNET Top 5, where each time we meet, we count down another hot CNET list. I'm Tom Merritt. It's the holidays. And CNET has no shortage of holiday gift recommendations. But which ones are you taking? What products do you pull up on your Web browser and sit and stare at and wish for like some 8-year-old with a WishBook catalog in 1973. Well let me tell you. Let's count down the top 5 most popular products. At No. 5, The Droid...Eris. This is the smaller and cheaper of the Droids. It isn't a perfect phone, and has an older version of the Android OS. But for the price, it's definitely a good choice. Coming in at No. 4, The BlackBerry Storm...PART TWO! This time it...works. Well the touch screen still has issues, but not as many, and they really spruced it up with the Wi-Fi and such. Man, everybody wants a Verizon phone don't they. Up to No. 3, The HTC Hero...no music? Good. For Sprint [[Interrupt with Bonnie Tyler]] (sigh) So anyway. Something for Sprint users. It's the second Google Android based phone on the list too, and it's full of features too. Sliding in at No. 2, Windows 7! See, it isn't all phones after all. Looks like somebody has a new operating system on their wish list. And it doesn't rhyme with Bo Beppard. Do you give an OS as a stocking stuffer, or wrap it up in a deceptively large box? Before we get to No. 1, it's time for another lame prize.
