Welcome to CNET Top 5, where each time we meet, we count down another hot CNET list. I'm Tom
Once again we dip into the CNET traffic logs to assess the most popular
products. And once again, it's dominated by phones. But not just
What nonphones have suddenly captured your interest?
..let's count 'em down.
At No. 5, a camera! the Canon PowerShot S90. It is often raved about
as almost like a dSLR, but keep in mind it doesn't have dSLR speed.
Still, it's an excellent camera for advanced amateurs.
Coming in at No. 4, the HTC Droid Eris. And back to the phones. You
know this one. You apparently kind of love this one. It's the
smaller, more affordable cousin to the Motorola Droid, but made by HTC
Up to No. 3, the HTC Nexus One, aka the Google phone. Announced for
AT&T and Verizon and already tearing it up on T-Mobile, this is the
phone that iPhone-haters usually tout as the iPhone killer.
Sliding in at No. 2, the Motorola Droid. Surprisingly, its always in
front of the Nexus One. It definitely gets better marketing, although
some think it's a little clunkier. But that doesn't matter. You love
it. But what knocked it out of the top spot?
Before we get to No. 1, Let's take a look back into the archives at the
most popular from May 2009.
See?! The list does really change!
All right. Let's get to our No. 1. The product most viewed on CNET.
Your most popular product
At No. 1, it's...the iPad. Well, no surprise there. With all the hype
and hoopla around this much touted tablet, even the most skeptical
probably took a look to see what all the noise was about. The question
is, does it have any staying power?
Well That's it for this edition of CNET Top 5.
