We've shown you the best cell phones that CNET reviewed this year, and now it's time for the lemons of 2010. Out of the 175 cell phones (give or take a few) that we've examined since January, these were the worst. Exactly what was wrong varied: sometimes it was design, sometimes it was performance, and sometimes it was both.
Keep in mind that this list does not include smartphones, but check back in a few days for the year's worst handsets in that category.
Rating: OK (5.0 or 2.5 stars)
The bottom line: The Duet W002 can take two SIM cards, but it's nothing more than a poorly conceived iPhone imitation.
The bottom line: Motorola may be pandering to the punk rock crowd with the Limited Edition of its stylized Motorola VE440 candy-bar phone, but behind the edgy cover, rock ringtones, and conveniently controlled music player lie basic features and questionable sound quality.
