Best New Travel Gadgets
T-Mobile USA, Inc.
T-Mobile’s latest iPhone competitor (known as “the Google Phone”) is a touch-screen mobile using Google’s Android operating system. Its virtual keyboard is a bit unwieldy for drafting a quick business update, but it works well for dashing off a short e-mail.
Best app: Google is set to launch a host of new ones next year. For now, we like Wikitude (free), which loads Wikipedia information on landmarks you are viewing through the phone’s camera lens, turning your live image into an annotated map. t-mobilemytouch.com; from $149.99. —Adam Baer
