CNET Top 5: Most popular products

2:34 /

The cell phones, er, we mean products the CNET readers are most excited about.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:07 >> Welcome to CNET Top Five, where each time we meet we count down another hot CNET list. I'm Tom Merritt. Time to check in on the most popular products based on how often you visit the product review pages here on CNET.com. And it's entirely made up of phones. You don't give a good God darn about any other kind of product apparently, so let's count them down. At number five, the Apple iPhone. It's been bobbing in and out of the Top Five, but it's not a big surprise to see it here. Most of you already know about this phone, though. You want to find out about the other phones that just might be better. Coming in at number four, the LG View. It's almost a year old and used to dominate this chart, frankly. But it has slowly begun to fall. Still it's a more popular AT&T phone than the iPhone. Go figure. Up to number three, the RIM BlackBerry Storm. The most popular Verizon phone? We shall see. It was oft heralded as the iPhone killer that might truly kill. But it didn't. Sliding in at number two, the LG Dare, another phone that's a little long in the tooth and another Verizon phone, but no longer in the top spot. What could possibly be of more interest to you than the Dare? Before we get to number one, in case you're wondering, there are two not phones in the top ten most popular gadgets, but we're gonna do another give away. The first person that can tell me on our blog what the most wanted gadget on CNET was one year ago in February gets this wind-up, mechanical robot that was once touched by Veronica Belmont. Post your answer to the Top Five blog post at blog.cnettv.com. Robot. All right, let's get to our number one. The most popular product, as determined by your visits to CNET reviews. At number one, it's the Samsung Omnia. Now we here at CNET favor this Verizon touch screen phone over the storm, and apparently so do you. Also, it's the newest phone on the list, and you do like a fresh face, don't you? If you're considering the Omnia, our main problem is you're tied to the preloaded widgets, and there's not an Omnia app store. But still, congratulations Omnia. They love you, or at least they're very interested in you. Well, that's it for this edition of CNET Top Five. Come on, non-phone lovers. Get to reading some non-phone reviews and get them up here in this list. And don't forget to post your answer to the blog and blog.cnettv.com. Fist correct post gets the robot. Oh, and congrats to hip-hop for prez who won our last contest. I'm Tom Merritt. See you next time. ^M00:02:29 >> What are you up to [inaudible]? ^M00:02:30 [ Music ]
