Nokia E71

Despite being released in 2008, Nokia's E71 remains one of the most popular smartphones on the market, thanks to the combination of a stylish design and great features. The display is a little small, but the E71 features a fantastic keyboard and a stylish look that makes it appealing to business customers as well as regular consumers.

Hot deal: 3 Mobile currently offers the Nokia E71 for $0 on a $49 cap over 24-months.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

Nokia's first touch-screen mobile phone, the 5800 XpressMusic packs in plenty of features, and includes a free 12-month subscription to Nokia's Comes with Music service, allowing unlimited music downloads through the Nokia Music Store. Multimedia functionality is excellent, and it is aided by the inclusion of a 3.5mm headphone jack, FM radio and an 8GB microSD card.

Hot deal: The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is available on the 3 Mobile network for $0 on a $69 cap over 24-months.

RIM BlackBerry Bold

The Bold is the best BlackBerry yet and has very few flaws. A refreshing interface, outstanding display and reasonable multimedia features are just some of what it has to offer. The navigational trackball and QWERTY keyboard are an excellent combination for data entry, and e-mail is as strong as ever.

Hot deal: 3 Mobile recently picked up the BlackBerry Bold and you can have it for $0 on a $79 cap over 24-months. In a special deal, the first 12 months of this contract are billed at $69 per month, saving you $120.
