Different colors, different styles, better features, and new applications for cell phones are on the rise as new products come out this year. Big companies like T-Mobile, Verizon, Samsung, and BlackBerry have released new items for those who seek new and improved technology gadgets.

T-Mobile’s new products for April 2010 include the Samsung Monte, Pulse Mini, and the Compact V cell phones. The T-Mobile Samsung Monte cell phone has a 3 inch touchscreen, a 3.2 megapixel camera, GPS, and it is preloaded with the popular Facebook and YouTube widgets. Some of T-Mobile Pulse Mini’s features include a 3.2 megapixel camera, 2GB memory card, and fast internet. The T-Mobile Compact V is a Windows Mobile 6.5 cell phone that includes a 3.2 inch touchscreen, a 5 megapixel camera, GPS, WiFi, fast internet, and 2GB of extra memory. New Windows Mobile 6.5 cell phone’s include the HTC HD2 Windows and the Samsung Exec i225 Windows Mobile Smartphone. The HTC HD2 Windows cell phone comes with a big 4.3 inch HD (high definition) touchscreen, a 5 megapixel camera, GPS, and fast internet. This product has an extremely wide screen for those who prefer to view bigger letters on the viewing screen. The Samsung Exec i225 Windows Mobile Smartphone includes a full QWERTY keypad, GPS, full HTML browser, stereo Bluetooth, and is very thin.

The Nokia N8 cell phone is becoming very popular. This phone has a 3.5 inch touchscreen with multi-touch support, a 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens that includes flash, the capacity to record HD videos, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, 16GB of built-in storage, a FM transmitter and radio, and it comes in five different colors of black, silver, blue, lime, and orange.

New products that are being introduced by Verizon are the Samsung Reality U820, and the HTC Droid Incredible cell phones. The Verizon Samsung Reality U820 cell phone comes in two different colors of piano black and city red with a 3 inch touch screen, a 3.2 megapixel camera, GPS, 128MB memory, slide-out horizontal QWERTY keyboard, and multiple messaging options. This phone may seem a bit bulky, but the multiple messaging options, as well as the slide-out keyboard, may come in handy for fast and effective texting. The Samsung Reality U820 phone is available now in stores for purchase. The Verizon HTC Droid Incredible runs the Google Android 2.1 OS (operating system) and has a 3.7 inch touch screen with an auto focus camera as well as great video capture, GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, 8GB of internal memory space, and will be available on April 29, although that date is tentative. The new features on the Verizon HTC Droid Incredible cell phone are believed to be an upgrade, thus a good replacement for the HTC Desire cell phone.

The new BlackBerry Pearl 3G Smartphone is coming out in May! It’s small, but has a lot to offer. Just to list a few: it has a camera with auto focus and flash, WiFi, GPS, BlackBerry maps, and it’s less than 2 inches wide and not too bulky. This phone is the smallest of the BlackBerry Smartphone series.

You don’t have to abandon your current phone to buy one of these new products that are being offered. Just take into consideration that with technology developing at a fast rate with businesses that are trying to provide more for their consumers, there are many options out there when it’s time to get a new cell phone.
