10 Ridiculously Niche Smartphones

...

The smartphone market is pretty well-established by now. You've got your big players in Apple, Samsung, Motorola, and a few others, all of whom do basically the same things: big, clear touch screens, fast data networks, decent sound. Aside from the branding and the operating system, there's not a tremendous amount of difference between one phone and another.

But then there are the companies operating on the fringes of the smartphone ecosystem, which have something different in mind. BlackBerry is a prime example. When it announced it was discontinuing the BlackBerry Classic recently, a vocal group of users protested. Even though the ungainly miniature keyboard is a relic of a bygone era, some people still inhabited that niche.

In this feature, we'll showcase a bunch of phones that target very different markets than the ones you're used to. These mobile devices come in weird shapes, boast weird features, and generally cover the bases that iPhones can't or won't. No matter what your niche, there's a smartphone out there for you.
