As text-messaging becomes more and more popular, cell phone manufacturers are releasing all sorts of finger-friendly devices with QWERTY keyboards, touch screens and other innovative features. We've got reviews of all the latest cell phones -- good and bad. AT&T and Verizon Wireless customers really get the best of breed when it comes to text messaging phones, and Samsung and LG phones get the best reviews. The top texting pick for Verizon users is the LG enV Touch, a device that combines a touch screen and a QWERTY keyboard. LG's brand-new Xenon, which offers similar features, takes the top prize for AT&T customers.
Not to be outdone, Samsung's follow-up to the popular Alias, the Samsung Alias 2 for Verizon, offers a morphing e-ink keyboard that changes configuration depending on how you hold the phone. The Samsung Impression for AT&T has a bright, sharp AMOLED screen -- the first of its kind -- that dazzles reviewers.
For Sprint, the older LG Lotus and Samsung Rant, both of which have pull-out QWERTY keyboards, are tops. T-Mobile subscribers should take a look at the touch-screen Samsung Behold, and, of course, the ubiquitous T-Mobile Sidekick.
