Smart phone buying advice from the expertsMolly Wood and Jessica Dolcourt dish the dirt on the best smart phones to buy this year, and how to pick the right one for you.
Speaker 1: So Jessica, there are an unbelievable number of phones coming and it feels like new incredible Smart phones coming out everyday. How would you ever choose and what are some of out top picks? Speaker 2: Okay. Well, some of the phones that we have here right now, we've got of course the iPhones which is the iPhone4S and then you've got a million Android phones that are getting better and better each time around. We've got the Motorola Droid Bionic right now and the Samsung Galaxy S2 phone and that comes on three separate carriers just like the iPhone. So these are some other Android phones here with a keyboard and without a keyboard and then you also have Windows phone which is another really good option. Speaker 1: Let's talk about Windows phone. I think it's new to a lot of people because Microsoft is sort of just relaunch this whole Windows phone initiative. Can you tell us about it? Speaker 2: Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, Windows phone is really cool because its got the sort of like funky metro look that makes Microsoft cool and the operating system is definitely different in some of the things that we seen out and it's also really easy to use. I mean you've got two launch screens and that's about it. So Microsoft is really getting bold and it's trying something new. Speaker 1: And we're gonna see more of these phones coming soon. Speaker 2: Absolutely. We're gonna see them from Nokia, from HTC, much more from Samsung. There gonna be a lot of Windows phones on the market. Speaker 1: So it seems like the biggest problem that consumers have now is that there in this two year contract and then amazingly your phone comes out every week or so. Is there anything you can do with any contract to get a new phone sooner? Speaker 2: You can show out big bucks. It costs about a 100, 200 bucks, it depends on the carrier to get out of your contract early. But the good news is there is so many good phones all the time that you're bound to find something new like within your carrier. Speaker 1: Absolutely.
