UK retailer Omio.com has published its list of “Top 10 Phones of 2009” in which HTC HD2 was unanimously chosen over Apple’s iPhone 3GS. This list was probably created on more day to day sales, and in demand basis of cell phones at the said retailer. The Android based HTC Hero grabbed the first spot, followed by the first multitouch capable (with capacitive) Windows Mobile 6.5 based HTC HD2 in second position. iPhone 3GS could only manage third position.

In the last few years, cell phones have evolved immensely with new features being added to them almost on day to day basis. LG has come up with an interesting idea this time by attaching a tiny device on the back of the phone, making it capable to project on walls. This could come in pretty handy for business users who wants portable projection system at their disposal anywhere and anytime they want. The LG Expo is a Windows Mobile 6.5 based phone on AT&T with a built-in Pico Projector accessory that can be attached when you need to project slides or videos on wall.

Windows 7 is by no means without its own problems, albeit in a volume far less consistent compared to Windows Vista’s. Still, users of the latest iteration of the Windows client will stumble across glitches in the operating system, some more severe than others, some just annoyances.
