BlackJack II tops CR list

BlackJack II tops Consumer Reports rankings Consumer Reports has published ratings of new smartphones, cellphones and US wireless carriers in their January 2009 issue, giving the highest honors in the smarthphone category to the Samsung BlackJack II. The second highest rated phone was the T-Mobile Wing, followed by the Motorola Q9C, T-Mobile Shadow and BlackBerry Pearl Flip. Just two point behind the Flip, at 61, was the iPhone 3G and T-Mobile G1, tied at 61. The latest round of Consumer Reports ratings did not include the BlackBerry Bold or Storm, however, nor the Samsung Omnia or any version of the HTC Pro handset.

In the cellphone class, Motorola's ROKR E8 took the number one spot, scoring 66. The remaining top five handsets include the LG Dare, Pantech Breeze, Sony Ericsson TM506 and K850i. The provider ranking were further broken down by geographical area, with Verizon scoring at the top in most. T-Mobile was second in the majority of metropolitan areas, with Sprint last in every area apart from San Francisco, where it tied AT&T for third, and a few certain other markets where it was on par with T-Mobile in second.
