    Wow! Only been out a little over a month!

    Probably why it's closing in on 1,000,000 units so fast :)

    Wow, I'm honestly surprised. I was expecting the Droid to be overshadowed by the iPhone and become a cult classic of sorts, but this is incredible. I'm glad Verizon finally pulled through and made something that even the media admits is better- although I must say, as a former Voyager owner I can now see why it took this to pull them through.

    Not sure why everybody is so surprised... The iPhone? Why is it even where it is? Yes, it is popular with the Studded Tiara Princesses (ducking)... but honestly, other than copy and Paste (finally) and MMS (finally) what is so innovative about the iPhone? 3 revs (and years) ago sure... now???... old hat.

    I can't help but wonder though if the Nook actually had units to sell and wasn't back ordering most until January that it wouldn't have come in number one.

    The Dyson fan is definitely geek chic... but honestly.. who is going to buy one? At $300 plus for a 10 or 12 inch fan... I don't see these thing flying off the shelves... but I could be wrong... it wouldn't be the first time.

    The Dell Adamo like the Macbook Air is great for people with more dollars than sense that have the urge to put their laptop in a manilla envelope... but practicality (and price) will likely limit this to rich people that don't actually need to be productive.

    The rest of the list is a little ho-hum... so to me, it is really no surprise that the Droid walked away tops this year.

    This is what happens when Verizon stops crippling a device. Part of the success, I think, is directly attributed to Verizon's awesome service. The "open" platform plus a (super fast) user base is an invitation for future development. This is great news.

    The G-future is coming true!

    2009 was a sad year for electronics, if that was the top 10... still awesome that the Droid was #1 though :D

    Got to love Time for this. The reasoning was so dead on too. Like someone said before, what did the 3gs really bring to the table over the 3g? Nothing innovative or even close to exciting. I'm glad they had the b*lls to stand up and give the Droid its due.

    Glad to see it up there, and I'm chuckling at the comments on that page. Those guys are so butt hurt "waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah YOU'LL SEE WHEN THE 4TH IPHONE COMES OUT WE'LL SHOW YOU"

    After this I would think if another smartphone makes it to this list it would have really be amazing.

    I'm not happy about seeing the beats on that list, overpriced crap in my opinion. In fact i can't reason why they are up there. They are by no means special in the headphone world I would rather see the Sennhesier hd800s up there if there had to be headphones.
