iPhone's biggest rivals

Nokia N95

Nokia's flagship handset might not seem like a potential iPhone-killer, but there've been strong rumours recently that the company plans to bring out a new music-focused N95, with 8GB of internal memory to store tunes on. In that case, it'd be a strong rival for Apple's phone, boasting as it does a better camera (five megapixels) and full GPS.

Sony Ericsson W960 Walkman

Perhaps the strongest iPhone rival this Christmas is the W960, by dint of its 2.6-inch touchscreen, 8GB of memory, Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity, and 27 hours of music playback on one battery charge. Its also gota 3.2-megapixel camera and bags of music software, such as Track ID, which you can use to identify tracks playing in public.

HTC Touch

Another direct competitor to the iPhone, with a 2.8-inch touchscreen (hence the name), Wi-Fi, a two-megapixel camera and a microSD card slot for music storage. Its trump card - for some users - will be the inclusion of the Windows Mobile 6 operating system, and all the document-viewing email-synchronising benefits that brings.

LG KU990

At the time of writing, this is still a rumour based on leaked photos online. But the KU990 is apparently the follow-up to LG's Prada phone, and will boast a decent-sized touchscreen, a five-megapixel camera, HSDPA connectivity, an FM radio, and the ability to watch YouTube videos on the device, or upload your own camphone clips to the video
