Consumer Reports names Samsung BlackJack II best smartphone

Consumer Reports named the Samsung BlackJack II as its best smartphone, and two of the smartphones that have garnered the most attention in recent months--Apple's iPhone 3G and the T-Mobile G1--were not even in the top 5.

The HSDPA phone, which features Windows Mobile 6.1, a built-in GPS radio with an optional TeleNav GPS Navigator, a 2-megapixel camera and is compatible with AT&T's Video Share service, costs $80 after a $100 mail-in rebate.

The T-Mobile Wing, Motorola QC9, T-Mobile Shadow and Research In Motion's BlackBerry Pearl Flip rounded out the the list.
