4th place: Motorola RAZRWhy: You probably remember the Motorola RAZR. It was originally a flip phone that sold over 130 million units worldwide in a five year period from 2004-2008. Motorola has decided to bring the RAZR back and the new one is thinner than ever. It's constructed from premium materials like diamond cut aluminium and Kevlar fibre, has a large, vibrant screen, and tops off the package with slick and intuitive software that we think aids the user experience. If you can live with its large size and sometimes awkward feel, the Motorola RAZR is one of the best Android smartphones of the year.
How much: $0 upfront on the Optus $59 cap plan over 24 months, or $0 on the Optus $79 cap over 24 months with a range of accessories including a HD Multimedia Dock, an extra power supply, a HDMI cable, a Motorola Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, a car cradle and car mount, a 3.5mm cable and an in-car charger.
