Transcript:5 Best Phones for Internet Access

Hi, I'm Shane Murphy, your technology guru for About.com. Today, we'll review cell phones that excel at internet access.

Phones With Internet Access: HP Veer

HP's Veer offers a more unique approach to a phone with internet access in mind, standing at only 3.3 inch tall and using HP's proprietary webOS. The slide out keyboard offers a full QWERTY keypad of very responsive keys, letting you compose messages that can send by either its 4G or Wi-Fi connectivity. The 2.6 inch touchscreen is definitely smaller than usual, but is still multi-touch for pinch-zooming.

Phones With Internet Access: HTC EVO Shift 4G

If you're looking for a smart phone with a large touchscreen and a flip out physical keyboard, you should consider the HTC Evo Shift 4G, one of the most powerful phones of its kind for a mere $50 with a contract. In addition to the sturdy QWERTY keyboard, you're also getting a 5 MP camera and great connectivity options with 4G and Wi-Fi, perfect for lightning-fast internet access in all situations.

Phones With Internet Access: Droid Bionic

The Droid Bionic is a classic powerhouse smart phone that will deliver an excellent internet browsing experience whether you're using its 4G LTE network connectivity or its Wi-Fi. The crystal clear 4.3 inch display will render streaming video flawlessly. Sharing your own video creations is a cinch with the HD video recorder and built in Android apps for fast uploading.

Phones With Internet Access: iPhone 4

The iPhone 4 may not have 4G capabilities, but it's still an internet browsing master thanks to a very competent 3G network and Wi-Fi capabilities. The Safari browser is designed to create a web surfing experience with no fuss, and iOS 5 comes pre-packaged with apps designed to make uploading video a snap.

Phones With Internet Access: Samsung Infuse

The Samsung Infuse will offer you one of the most impressive video streaming experiences with its huge 4.5 inch AMOLED touch screen that renders vivid colors and sharp contrast. A 1.2 GHZ processor coupled with Wi-Fi and 4G connectivity means that you won't be without internet options, and its high density battery will let you browse all day.
