Cost: $295 (with two-year contract)

While the iPhone touts a touchscreen keyboard, the Ocean has two pull-out keyboards for heavy-duty communicating. Also unlike the iPhone, this handheld allows for instant messaging (using any of three messaging clients). And with a 2.4-inch display and landscape viewing option, the Ocean also supports videos and music from Helio's over-the-air store, which enables wireless downloads. Available on Helio's high-speed 3G network, which is faster than the iPhone's EDGE technology.
