Now that Apple has officially announced the iPhone 4S and put its specs on the table, we can put those specs up against the other baddest phones on the planet -- the current flagship devices for Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, and webOS.

Each, of course, has its own unique advantages:

  • iPhone 4S is blazing fast with the elegant and powerful iOS 5 and the jaw-dropping Assistant artificial intelligence-meets voice control system.

  • Samsung Galaxy S II has a huge, incredibly bright display, ultra-thin profile, and Google's Android 2.3 Gingerbread with TouchWiz on top.

  • BlackBerry Bold 9900 brings touchscreen and QWERTY keyboard together in a way unseen since the best days of the Treo and combines in all the killer communication power of the BlackBerry 7 platform.

  • HTC Titan makes other big phones feel small, with a gigantic screen, the polish of Microsoft's Metro UI, and the features of the newly releases Windows Phone 7.5 Mango update.

  • Pre3 may never see the light of day, thanks to HP, but we include it here so a) we can look at the battle that might have been, and b) our webOS friends don't kick us in the shins.

It's a more competitive market than ever before so check out the phones above and let us know -- did iPhone 4S just vault Apple back to the top?
