The fine fellas at US price comparison site BillShrink.com have knocked out another of their excellent comparison charts, breaking down the key features and costs of the current big hitters in the smartphone world: the iPhone 3GS, Palm Pre, Motorola Droid and the brand spanking new Google Nexus One.
