The N2 stands out as one of the most original phone designs out there: It's modeled after a dog tag so it can be worn around the neck (at just over 2 ounces, it's half the iPhone's weight). But be prepared for a steep learning curve: the N2's touchscreen requires specific finger sweeps that take getting used to. Like the iPhone, the device comes with a music player and a 2-megapixel camera. Unlike the iPhone 3G, there's no built-in GPS and, well, it's not yet available in the United States (Swedish maker Neonode says it plans to bring the phone here, but won't say when). It also relies on a slimmed-down operating system, Windows Embedded CE 6.0, made for small gadgets.
