It is time for another MakeUseOf poll! I hope you are all ready and excited – it has been a while after all. Today’s poll is going to be about mobile phones — what do you use? (if any!). Wondering which is most popular?

A mobile device says a lot about its user. I’m sure you all have your opinions of people using iPhones or Droids. And I am sure most of you feel that your devices are the best hands down. Is it?

We would like you to answer the following question to see how we can can better address the majority of readers. If you use more than one type, please choose the one that you use the most.

If you feel that your option is missing, choose other and let us know which phone you use in the comments.

Note: We are not looking for models like the Tilt2 or iPhone 3GS, just the general platform. Along with your vote, feel free to leave a comment if you want us to cover something specific related to the mobile you’re currently using now or you have an idea for a future MakeUseOf poll.

    Nokia 6085 with good old J2ME.
    Works great, very customizable.

    Palm Centro - looking at new phones with Verizon in next couple of months. Like looks of Eris Droid and Palm Pre Plus. Would like iPhone (not available at Verizon) since I have a MacBook.

    I use the Nokia N900 as my main phone now. Where's the Maemo option?

    Good to see your staff reading the comments and ammending the poll as necessary. Good job guys.
    Personally I use a blackberry (well two - work and private) but would be interested in seeing the Google Nexus one on the list :) I know its probably covered in Android - just curious is all.

    Blackberry, Pre and Other Smartphone options have been added. Thanks for your opinions!

    WebOS on the Palm Pre. Your options are not exactly well-chosen. You could at least have an "Other Smart Phone" option, and based on Blackberry's popularity, their own option. The results of your poll will be almost useless for showing what phones your readers actually own.

    Nokia N85, running Symbian. It's a nice phone, but if I would have to choose now I would probably choose an Android phone with a decent touch-experience (no crappy LG touch-experience!).

    Voted other - Blackberry. Why the stupid option and no Blackberry option, isn't it the single most popular mobile device?

    I am dismayed by the lack of Pre love here and elsewhere. It's a banging phone!

    No BlackBerry then no vote.

    Nokia N95 8gB, but pretty soon it'll be an Androïd device!

    Blackberry is other..So they didn't mention your manufacturer, so what. They didn't mention my manufacturer
    (HTC) either, so what?
    Incidentally, HTC romps all over Blackberry.
    That B'berry OS is out in left field.
    Windows Mobile and Android are quietly taking over the mobile OS arena.

    What if we're dual-booting WM and Android? I'm definitely enjoying the freedom to do that right now. I see a lot of nice things in Android, but also have a lot invested in WM (software and such that I use regularly) so am not looking to switch. Besides, I'm really hoping for some Zune + WM announcements come March. :)

    I use a plain old cellphone but I make the most of it through services that utilize SMS to get things done. If I wasn't stuck for one year more on my T-mobile contract I would probably get an Android phone.

    These are all operating systems for mobile phones? I am supprised Symbian is coming last (apart from the two people who don't know what a mobile phone is). If they are from America, its a Cell phone. Doesn't most Nokia phones using Symbian? I sure everyone has heard Nokia before?

      What's so surprising about Symbian being unpopular/unheard of in North America?

    I agree, blackberry should be added to the poll

    No blackberry and no pre?

    I think the last choice is silly and unnecessary. I mean who doesn't know what a mobile phone is?

    It's sad that you didn't put blackberry on here. It controls so much more market share then iPhone and Android. Where you high when you created this poll?

    Why no Blackberry on here?
