Top 10 most popular cell phones of 2009

CNET compiles a list of the top 10 most popular cell phones and smartphones of 2009 based most-viewed products to date by CNET users in 2009.

A ton of cell phones and smartphones are released in a year's time. Trust us, we've seen most all of them. However, not all handsets are created equal and some are more popular than others. If you're curious to see which handsets people are clamoring for, well you're in luck. We've compiled a list of the top 10 popular cell phones and smartphones for 2009 and put them into a pretty slideshow for your viewing pleasure.

As you peruse the gallery, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. First, the list is based on the most-viewed products to date by CNET users in 2009, and not just those released this year. As such, you'll find a number of older products on the list since they've obviously been on the site longer than the newer ones. Also, many of the models were highlighted on our Top products list.

All that said, it's pretty interesting to see what's still popular these days. Check it out for yourself and see if your phone made the list.
