\r\nSmartphones come a dime a dozen these days, with everybody wanting a piece of the market. But not everyone has the right goods though, making for some sorry ass smartphones that are doomed from the beginning. Apple\u2019s iPhone continues to be a leader in the smartphone market, as well as a number of Android-based phones, but some tried to beat out these smartphone top dogs and fell flat on their face. Others just didn\u2019t have what it takes to make a great smartphone and some just became obsolete because of newer and better versions.\r\n7. Huawei M835\r\n\r\nPoised to be a beginner\u2019s smartphone, the Huawei M835 from MetroPCS is an Android phone to avoid like the plague. Released earlier this year, its design is a rip-off of T-Mobile\u2019s Comet, the Huawei M835 is slow as hell and its performance is nonexistent. While it may sport a cheap price, we don\u2019t give this smartphone too long before it becomes obsolete.\r\n6. T-Mobile G2\r\n\r\nT-Mobile\u2019s first 4G device, the G2, is now gone forever. The official date of death was June 6, 2011. The HTC-built device had a good run and lots of rave reviews, but T-Mobiles myTouch 4G Slide was coming in, so they needed to replace one of the first Android phones available. It\u2019s not entirely a fail, but it\u2019s been discontinued, so it now lives in the smartphone graveyard like the aforementioned devices. For something better, have a look at our list of 13 of the best Blackberry Z10 features, then make your decision.\r\n5. Palm Pre by HP\r\n\r\nHewlett-Packard said goodbye to the smartphone market in August when they announced that their Palm Pre devices would be discontinued. Out for a little more than a year, the Palm Pre was killed slowly due to slow development. HP also announced it would kill production on it\u2019s tablet and looks to get out of the hardware manufacturing game as a whole and stay focused to the software side of things. Too bad because many thought their WebOS software was actually going places.\r\n4. Dell Streak\r\n\r\nDell is well known in the PC market, but its try at an Android phone was more of a flop. Looking more like a tablet than a smartphone, the Streak is too large to be a phone and too small to be a real tablet. A phone that won\u2019t fit your pocket would be an obvious feature for failure, but Dell didn\u2019t think so. Many criticized Dell for trying to create an entirely new category for phones (or tablets), and they should have chosen the Streak to be one or the other\u2026not both. It was officially discontinued in August.\r\n3. Microsoft Kin\r\n\r\nMicrosoft\u2019s Kin had a very short life span\u2026only six weeks to be exact. The company blamed low sales numbers, but Microsoft just came too late to the smartphone party is more of why it failed. Primarily targeted to teens as a social device that would allow them to always be connected to their social life on Facebook or Twitter, the Internet connectivity was a bit too pricey than a teen could afford. Microsoft should stick to what they know\u2026Word, Excel and PowerPoint. But who knows, they might have better luck with their Windows Phone 7 that has been coming up in tech news on the net lately.\r\n2. Garminfone\r\n\r\nThe Garminfone wasn\u2019t as successful as Garmin\u2019s GPS products were. While everybody wants GPS capability in their smartphones, the Garminfone wasn\u2019t exactly the Holy Grail of GPS-oriented phones. Sold through T-Mobile, the Garminfone failed to generate expected sales. Some say that it was due to poor marketing, while other say there are too many other options with GPS that the Garminfone was totally unnecessary.\r\n1. Google Nexus One\r\n\r\nMuch hype surrounded Google\u2019s Nexus One smartphone before it launched, with analysts believing that it would dethrone Apple\u2019s iPhone and take over the market. Boasted as the iPhone killer, the Nexus One proved to be its own killer instead. Designed to be a replica of the iPhone, it still failed to have many of its notable features. It also had spotty or no 3G coverage, poor customer service and it didn\u2019t have a major carrier backing it up, instead being sold to the consumer directly. It had such bad sales over its first six months that Google decided to discontinue selling it back in July 2010.
