RESTON, VA — Wirefly.com, the online leader in one-stop comparison shopping for cell phones and wireless phone plans, today announced the top 10 hottest cell phones for Valentine’s Day 2008. The Blackjack II, the Samsung Juke and the Blackberry Curve top the list. All three models showcase the popular features consumers are craving – converged functionality, form factor and hot colors.
“The top 10 list for Valentine’s Day offers a wide variety of features for all avid cell phone users,” said Brian Westrick, Wirefly’s president. “The variety speaks to the individuality of consumers today. Some want a full keyboard for faster texting, others want the hottest color or even their music integrated into their handset. Each phone that made the list is one of the strongest in its field, demonstrating that you don’t have to sacrifice quality in other areas to get the color or feature you want. Wirefly gives our consumers the options they want to fulfill their individual needs.”
Westrick continued, “Valentine’s Day is a time when we all try to find that perfect gift for that special someone. We see one of our top ten cell phones as a perfect alternative, or in addition to, the standard heart shaped chocolates and two dozen roses.”
