Best Cell Phone comparison site

October 16th, 2010

compare-cellphones.org covers Smartphones and Tablets as well!

compare-cellphones.org is one of the most comprehensive phone comparison websites available today. (far better than PhoneScoop.com) You can choose to compare just about any phone, past, present, recently announced and possibly even leaked phones. (provided that details are leaked as well)

All you need to do is enter the two phones that you would like to compare. Once you start typing, you get a dropdown list providing you with nearly every phone imaginable. Just choose the ones you want and hit the Compare button. You will be presented with images of both phones and a list of ‘Reasons to Choose’ one phone over the other. There is also a convenient list of Pors and Cons as compared to ALL cellphones. You are able to view multiple images of the phones being compared and also leave comments on the comparison page if you wish.

You can easily share your comparisons on Facebook with the built in Facebook ‘Like’ button.
(I would like to see more sharing options…Twitter, Buzz, email, etc.)

As I mentioned earlier…some of the phones listed aren’t even phones at all. The Samsung Galaxy Tab is a tablet Computer that just so happens to have built-in phone capabilities. I’m sure this is why the Apple iPad isn’t available for comparison…wait…what? Is it available for comparison? But it doesn’t have phone capabilities. So why is it here?

Go to compare-cellphones.org before you head out to your local mobile retailer. You’ll be glad you did!

Some widget details:
Most of the widgets are a simple “copy and paste” of some code to place the widget into your site. The “get code” link associated with the “MP3 Download of the Day” widget includes a well rounded tutorial on how to customize the size and appearance of your widget using some basic CSS. It does not explain the intricacies of CSS. For that they suggest you search the Internet for CSS related information.
Almost all of these widgets contain added CSS that you can easily edit to alter the appearance of the widget to conform to your website scheme.

These widgets are a great addition to any Jazz music related blog or website. They are FREE to use and FREE to enjoy.
