You don't have to be in the US, or buy a carrier-branded phone, tospeak up on this one.  No matter where you do your talking and texting,we want you to chime in:  What was the best UNLOCKED phone released in2008?  GSM makes the world go 'round, and there's no doubt that Imissed a few contenders here, so cast your vote for one of ourcandidates or that ever-popular rebel, "Other."

Note that in order to qualify for Phone of the Year '08, the devicemust actually be shipping as of ... right now.  Sorry, Nokia N97 fans -if you can't buy it on the street (or via a legit online importer), youcan't vote for it.
