    13 Ugliest Phones of the Mobile Era
    - Sent from my HTC Evo 3D

    First I can't believe they left of the N-GAGE (aka "side talkin") from a list of ugliest phones??

    Second, this quote on the Moto Flipout made me LOL.

    Is there a demon whispering "make it square" in the ear of phone designers? Even the new Motorola couldn't resist the temptation.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, isn't it?

    I suspect that the same 13 spots would appear quite different for every single person whos every held a variety of phones in their hands..

    Useless article, IMO.

    Funny opinion piece, but yeah, I don't agree with a lot of them either. LCGuy is pretty much completely right.

    And a lot of those are "look how stupid old tech looked" - while relatively current handsets can also be totally ugly. No hunchback Droid X?

    Totally agree.

    I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess.

    Aw come on LCGuy, the guy was just having a little fun. I would add the Motorola Charm to the list, another current and truly ugly piece of equipment.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    Ok...pop quiz. What cellphone\smartphone have you seen that seriously made you go WT*?? when you saw it?

    For me Nokia has definitely topped my list and one in particular was a "texting" phone (don't know the model) that opened "spread eagle" and had 1/2 the keyboard on one side of the phone and 1/2 on the other. I swear it looked like a reject prop from StarTrek or something! lol.

    I, too, wanted to get that phone because of the big keyboard. Still think the idea is kinda nifty although I won't buy any more phones whose keyboard I can't use with one hand. Portrait keyboard ftw
