Check out some of the coolest smartphones around

When it comes time to shop for a smartphone many people are inevitably drawn to Android devices. There is a huge range of the things to choose from. There are Android offerings from just about all of the major phone makers on the market.

One of the best things about the Android OS and its open source nature is that you have so many options when it comes to choosing a handset and for getting apps for the handset after you buy. The price range for Android phones also tends to vary greatly. The newer devices with more power are often $199 or more with a new 2-year contract while some of the older devices can be had for much less than that amount.

The downside to having so many choices when it comes to shopping for an Android phone is that the handsets can vary widely in performance. That means that a game app that runs great on a new and powerful dual-core smartphone might not run well at all on an older single core processor Android device. Another thing that users have to watch out for is that while some phone markers will offer Android OS updates very quickly after Google makes a new OS available, some makers will not offered the update for all their handsets for months after a new version is available.

When you get ready to buy a new Android smartphone, look for one that suits your needs well and has room for growth as you want to do more down the road. If you are a the sort that plays a lot of games and watches a lot of media on their smartphone a high-end phone with a dual-core processor might be the best choice. If you are the sort that just checks email and surfs the web on occasion, any old Android device will probably work just fine for you. Check out my picks for some of the best Android smartphones around below.

1. Motorola Atrix 4G - This is one of the newer Android smartphones and it is on the AT&T network. This phone is a media consumers dream and supports 4G speeds in areas where AT&T has 4G coverage. It has a big 4-inch screen and 802.11n WiFi. The rear camera is a 5MP unit and the camera can shoot 720p HD video. It has a front camera for video calls and up to nine hours of talk time. Internal storage is up to 16GB and the phone has a microSD card slot for expansion.

2. HTC Inspire 4G - Another nice newer 4G smartphone for the AT&T network is the Inspire 4G. This phone runs Android 2.2 and has a giant 4.3" screen that supports multi-touch and more. It has integrated 802.11n WiFi, an 8MP rear camera that also records 720p video. It supports Bluetooth stereo streaming and has a microSD card slot for storage. The smartphone comes with an 8GB microSD card slot.

3. HTC ThunderBolt 4G - AT&T isn't the only carrier with some really cool Android 4G smartphones. Verizon has the HTC ThunderBolt that supports Verizon's LTE 4G network where available. The smartphone supports 3G networks too. It has GPS, an 8MP rear camera with 720p video recording and a 1.3MP front camera. The battery is a 1400mAh unit and it has a 4.3-inch screen. The OS is Android 2.2 and the phone ships with a 32GB microSD card for storage.

4. Motorola Droid X - Verizon also has the cool Droid X smartphone. This one has no 4G support, but since most of the country still doesn't have a 4G network to use that's not a big deal for most. It does support 3G and has tethering capability. The Droid X has 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot for expansion. It runs Android 2.1 and has a 4.3-inch screen, an 8MP camera with 720p video recording, and up to 8 hours of talk per charge. It ships with a 2GB microSD card.

5. HTC Evo 4G - This smartphone is for the Sprint network and it supports Sprint's fast WiMax 4G network. The smartphone has support for 3G networks and has a 8MP rear camera and a 1.3MP front camera. It also has GPS and access to Sprint TV and the Amazon MP3 store. The screen is 4.3-inches wide and the phone uses a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. The rear camera can record 720p video and it supports Bluetooth and lots more.

6. Samsung Galaxy S 4G - This is a T-Mobile smartphone with a 4G connection that also supports 3G. The phone runs Android 2.2 and it has a 4-inch AMOLED screen and a 1GHz processor. It has a 5MP rear camera with 720p video recording and a front camera for video chat. The device ships with a 16GB microSD card. The battery is good for 6.5 hours of talk and 432 days on standby.

The Incredible has a battery good for 312 minutes of talk and 146 hours on standby.
