Touchscreen mobile phones sell like hotcakes nowadays, thanks to the iPhone. Love it or hate it, it gave other manufacturers a kick up the backside to produce touchscreen mobile phones that could top it. And now, there are two new contenders: the Samsung Pixon and the phenomenal Blackberry Storm.

Samsung Pixon - the touchscreen mobile phone with 8 massive megapixels

What happens if you take a sleek touchscreen interface, and weld it into a mobile phone that has one of the best cameras known to man? You get the Samsung Pixon, a handset that may very possibly dominate the world of camera-equipped mobile phones this Christmas! The touchscreen interface no the Samsung Pixon is truly a joy to use, and easily measures up to more famous mobile phones (oh ok, the iPhone). But aside from the amazing usability is the long list of features in the Samsung Pixon. The 8 megapixel camera is obviously the star of the show here, as it's more powerful than most other mobile phones on the market, and features things like face/smile/blink detection, and image stabiliser, to make the Samsung Pixon a properly powerful snapper. Other key features include GPS, fast HSDPA internet and tons of multimedia options.

Blackberry Storm - Causing a storm in the world of mobile phones

For a while, there were rumours of touchscreen Blackberry mobile phones being made. And the rumours came true. But, you see, this isn't just any mobile phone. The fact is this: the new touchscreen Blackberry Storm is one of the single most innovative and best mobile phones ever made! Ok, it may have taken some design cues from the iPhone (although, in my opinion, the Blackberry Storm is better looking), but it builds on the iPhone experience by being the first device EVER in the world of mobile phones to have a movable, 'clicky' screen. In other words, when you press on the screen of the Blackberry Storm, it moves into the phone ever so slightly, and feels exactly like you're pressing a physical key. That makes the Blackberry Storm's onscreen keyboard the best I've ever, ever come across, and believe me on this: it's absolutely brilliant to use! In terms of features, the Blackberry Storm gives you a 3 megapixel camera, HSDPA internet, GPS (de rigueur for mobile phones these days) and fantastic media playback. Oh, and the amazing Blackberry email service, let's not forget that... But it's that screen that's really going to wow you on the Blackberry Storm, over and over again!

Samsung Pixon vs Blackberry Storm - which should you ask Santa for this year?

So, when you get right down to it, which of these amazing touchscreen mobile phones should you go for? Should you go for the Samsung Pixon, or the Blackberry Storm? The key question you need to ask yourself is what you want it for. If you want an awesome camera, pretty much unequalled in the world of mobile phones, then the one for you is the Samsung Pixon. But for everything else, the Blackberry Storm is the winner. Especially with that screen, which is one of the coolest things I've ever seen on any mobile phones ever. And I've seen a few, in my time! Put simply, whilst the Samsung Pixon may have the better camera, the Blackberry Storm absolutely canes it in every other way!
