CNET Top 5: Most popular products for November

2:49 /

The gadgets you spend the most time gazing at. Is this a holiday hint?

Welcome to CNET Top 5, where each time we meet, we count down another hot CNET list. I'm Tom Merritt. Time to check in on the gadgets that trip your trigger. These are the most popular products as determined by ranking what CNET reviews you looked at the most. Its a peek into what tech is top of mind for the CNET crowd. So, let's count 'em down. At No. 5, the Asus Eee PC 1005HA. Just barely hanging on by the skin of it's tiny little 10-inch screen. But it's still the reigning Editors' Choice in laptops and has hung around in the most popular list since June. Coming in at No. 4, the HTC Imagio for Verizon Wireless, a newcomer to the list. A great all-in-one smartphone with the fresh new Windows 6.5 mobile operating system and all the Wi-fi, touch screen, and other smartphone goodness you've come to expect. Up to No. 3, The HTC Hero...NO! Bonnie Tyler. Please. It's the Google phone for Sprint! And while Bonnie Cha found it a bit sluggish, it still ranks as one of the most feature-packed Android phone yet. I have a feeling the Droid will eat it up next month. Sliding in at No. 2, Microsoft Windows 7. It *just* launched but I imagine it will be on this list for awhile. Other than a little snafu with the student edition, it mostly gets rave reviews. I personally got it to blue screen once. It's even got a better BLUE screen! Before we get to No. 1, Time for another lame prize. You'll be competing for this amazing music-sensitive light-up t-shirt! It can turn YOU into a popular product. Here's the question. What product was most popular one year ago. Be one of the first 10 people to answer correctly at blog.cnettv.com and you could be chosen to win. On with the countdown. Time for the most popular product as determined by you the CNET fans. At No. 1, it's...the Samsung Rogue for Verizon Wireless. It has gorgeous display and a great keyboard, but its a bit bulky. However, overall it's a great touch-screen messaging phone and only costs $80 with contract. That's why Nicole Lee made it an Editors'Choice. And you made it the most popular product on CNET.com Well That's it for this edition of CNET Top 5. Next month, we'll most likely see the Motorola Droid and a slew of other new phones. Will the Rogue withstand the assault? Can the Eee PC hang on another month? Only top 5 will be able to tell you for sure. And don't forget, hit up blog.cnettv.com for a chance to win the the light-up shirt. I'm Tom Merritt. See you next time. Dummy line for prompter to cut off.
