In Pictures: Smartphones of summer - the 12 hottest handhelds

CIO.com's Al Sacco rounds up the 12 best high-end smartphones available this (northern hemisphere) summer season, from handset makers Samsung, Motorola, Apple, HTC, Nokia and more.

Nokia Lumia 900

Why it's Hot: The Lumia 900 is Nokia's top-of-the-line LTE Windows Phone (WP 7.5 Mango), running on AT&T's LTE network. The device is built like a tank, but it's still slim and light. It has 16GB of built-in storage, a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display and an 8MP camera with a Carl Zeiss lens. (Note: Windows Phone 8 is expected soon, so if you're in the market for a Windows smartphone, you may want to wait for that new OS.)

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
