You be the judge but after viewing both photos, these two smartphones look like twins that were taken in by different surrogate families. On the right, the Palms decided to name their baby "Gandolf" while the HTCs on the left were smitten by their new baby girl and christened her "Iris". Sure there are differences, but these two could at least pass for cousins. What’s interesting to me is that while I’ve read a bunch of negative comments on the look of Gandolf, I haven’t heard the same about Iris. Are we just nicer to "girl" devices?
