CNET Top 5: Most popular products for August

2:26 /

The product reviews CNET visitors spend the most time adoring.

Welcome to CNET Top 5, where each time we meet, we count down another hot CNET list. I'm Tom Merritt. It's time to check out what product reviews you have been visiting most often. We've queried the CNET traffic logs and found out what products you're spending the most time adoring. Let's count down the Top 5 most popular products. At No. 5, The Palm Pre. It's only for Sprint, and it's locked in a battle with iTunes for syncing privileges, but it hasn't sunk off the most popular charts. Coming in at No. 4, the Asus Eee PC 1005HA. The only Netbook in the Top 5 and the only device that's not a phone. Hey, we like it too; that's why we gave it an Editors' Choice. Up to No. 3, the BlackBerry Tour. It's a world-roamer with a 3.2 megapixel camera and fast performance. I just wish it had Wi-Fi. Maybe it would be at number one then. Sliding in at No. 2, the Apple iPhone 3GS. Honestly, I would have expected this one to drop down lower by now, but even as the hype subsides you show a persistent interest in the darling of the smartphone world. Before we get to No. 1, time for another lame prize. Be one of the first 10 people to answer the following question at the post for this episode on blog.cnettv.com, and you could take home a 2008 CES backpack. Actually worn by actual journalists at CES. Here's the question. What phone is often considered the first smartphone? Bonus points if you know its dimensions. All right. Let's get to our No. 1. The most popular product this month according to your visits to CNET reviews pages. At No. 1, it's...the LG enV Touch. Also an Editors' Choice, this Verizon phone has two displays, a great keyboard and full HTML Web browsing. It's the iPhone for Verizon with a physical keyboard! But what's the deal with nobody including Wi-Fi on Verizon phones? Do they not want people to take it easy on their network? Well, that's it for this edition of CNET Top 5. Don't forget to answer our trivia question on the post for this show at blog.cnettv.com for a chance to win the backpack. I'm Tom Merritt. See you next time.
