HTC Evo 4G

In March, HTC and Sprint introduced the Evo 4G, a 3G/4G smartphone running Android 2.1 and featuring—at 4.3 inches—one of the industry's largest displays, though competitors are catching up. Nonetheless, other serious perks include an 8 megapixel camera, HDMI output, Mobile Hotspot capabilities and HD video capture. A firm release date hasn't been set, but the rumors say June 13.

Samsung Galaxy S II

A follow-up to Samsung's enormously successful Galaxy S line, the Galaxy S II will feature a dual-core processor and run Android 2.3, and is being touted as the world's thinnest smartphone. (It's just 8.49mm, compared to the iPhone 4's 9.3mm.) Already launched in India, U.S. customers may have to wait until late summer or even early fall.
