10 Smartphones That Failed to Inspire Buyers In 2010

by Don Reisinger
The smartphone market is as interesting as it is crowded these days. It's crammed with devices designed for just about any customer on any budget looking for almost any feature they want. Plus, with so many smartphones available, customers on any carrier can readily find a suitable device that matches their desire. But the smartphone space is currently dominated by a handful of devices, led by Apple's iPhone, the Motorola Droid X and the Motorola Droid 2. Most of the other phones currently available have failed to find the limelight as those major releases have cast huge shadows. It's that group—the devices that haven't been able to attract buyers as well as their vendors had hoped—that are highlighted here. Some of the following devices might come as a surprise to some, since they were offered by major vendors. Others will be obvious. But in every case, the following smartphones failed to do their part to appeal to consumers and enterprise customers during 2010. Take a look at these examples.
