Cost: $50 (with two-year contract)

It's not the Wafer itself that stand out. It's the iPhone-like technology behind it.

Alltel Wireless has developed a user interface, called Celltop, that, like the iPhone, gives users instant access to weather, news, stock prices, sports scores and other bits of information on the go. The Celltop widgets, as the mini-applications are known, look as user-friendly as the iPhone's. Unlike the Apple handset, the Wafer doesn't have a smudge-prone touchscreen. But you have to like the standard keypad.
