The smartphone…

We know how the iPhone 4 sizes up against the aging 3GS but how does it fare against its fiercest competitors from all the major platforms?
We wish we had some production Windows Phone 7 kit to check out here, but in the meantime, take a look at the results against the gruesome foursome of the EVO 4G, N8, Pre Plus, and HD2.
You might be surprised by some of the results — and sorry, RIM, you don’t get to play until you bring some fresh, media-heavy hardware to the table.

Nothing personal!
