With the iPhone 4G release date still pending

check out these alternatives

Yes, we are still anticipating the iPhone 4G release date. But for those who can’t wait but want a luxury smart phone at their side, you might be happy with these two alternatives.

(iPhone 4 release date update: 6/24/2010)

The Meizu M8
It runs in a Microsoft Windows CE 6 platform and sports a 3.4-inch 720×480 high-definition display screen with Proximity /Gravity /Ambient light sensors and multi-touch application.

Check out this promo video:

Too bad its not really sold in the US – you’ll have to buy it from China. Finding a contract for it should be fine – It’s SIM free (unlocked) and of course, has English support.

Then again, you might want to wait for the Meizu M9 with a 3.6 in 720×480 touchscreen, a 1Ghz Cortex A8-based Samsung S5PC100 CPU, 5MP camera, 512MB ram, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooh, USB port and TV-out and support! Aprox: $366 US.

Wow.

Ok, I mentioned this phone in my post, “Apple iPhone 4G release Date – 4G Rumors Featured

It’s the Nokia N86
With that 8MP camera and OLED screen you can’t go wrong!
Check out this promo video for the N86.

What I like about the Nokia N86 is the OLED screen and 8MP camera – whew – wow!

But then again, you might want to get the Nokia N97! The flagship of Nokia phones!

The Meizu M8 and the Nokia N86 aren’t brand spanking new – but they still rival the iPhone and possibly their updated versions will definately rival the iPhone 4G!  So there are two alternatives – do some research – you might be sold. Personally, I like them both – but do I want to step away from the iPhone right now? I’ll see what people say about the iPhone 4G.

Update: Engadget also reports that the iPhone HD (or whatever it ends up being called), will be announced on Tuesday, June 22. Historically, this date falls in line with past iPhone release dates.
