    Interesting ranking list, recently released. they have the Pre listed as sprint and verizon. Looks like the pre fairs OK radiation wise, 54th out of ??, so in the top ?? percent of phones.

    I'm not particularly concerned about radiation, but i figured someone somewhere might be.

    looks like there are less than 1000 as i originally stated, the article I found this from said 1000 phones, and i took them at face value

    Which one is number one? The microwave hack and radioactive spider thing turned out to be a bust and I'm itching to get me some super powers.

    Maybe that's why it has such issues with signal strength?

    Looks like the EWG released a new list according to this article (only posting to reference 2010 date): BlackBerry Bold-ly Tops Radiation Ranking | eWEEK Europe UK

    Here is Full list showing Pre high up than some of its legitimate competitors: Get a Safer Phone | Environmental Working Group

    And here is top and worst lists showing Baby Pixi as among WORST radiation: Get a Safer Phone | Environmental Working Group

    the radiation unit is in watt per kilogram? so a light phone like pixi has a higher w/kg number? how does that make it more radiactive?

    can anyone explain what the units are/mean?

    Kilgram isn't referring to the weight of the phone. This article explains it better than any of us could:

    Keep in mind, if its on the market, even if it has a high rating...it still meets Federal Regulation.

    Phew, as long as the wise overloads say it's safe.
