What cellphone is drawing the most curiosity this holiday season?

Posted by Tricia Duryee at 12:21 PM

And the answer is:

The LG Voyager.

That's the conclusion of a study that combed out data from the Web sites of U.S. carriers to determine which phones consumers were clicking on and reading about the most. It was compiled by Compete, a company specializing in Web analytics.

The LG Voyager is Verizon Wireless's answer to the iPhone. It was the No. 1 phone viewed in detail at the major carrier's Web sites in November, Compete said.

In second place was the T-Mobile Sidekick Slide, an evolution of the popular Sidekick phone that has a screen that slides up instead of swiveling up and around. In third place was the Samsung t629, and, shockingly, in fourth was the Apple iPhone.

The rest of the list is as follows:

5. T-Mobile Sidekick LX-Blue
6. T-Mobile Sidekick iD
7. LG Venus, Black
8. Sony Ericsson, Z310a, lush pink
9. Sony Ericsson, W580i Walkman, white
10. Pantech C150.

In a second study, Compete found the same data for the Smartphone category.
Here's the list:

1. Apple iPhone
2. Pantech Duo
3. RIM Blackberry Pearl
4. Samsung SCHi760
5. Motorola Q Global
6. Blackberry Pearl (refurbished).
7. HTC Dash
8. RIM Blackberry Curve 8310 Titanium
9. RIM Blackberry Curve, pale gold
10. AT&T 8525 (HTC), refurbished.
