Rentobile is like Netflix for mobile phones

logo_gA new service called Rentobile is offering phone rentals from 1 month to one year in length. Rates vary from $20 per month for the Samsung Epix to $51 for  16gb iPhone 3g or Nokia E90. Right now their selection is fairly limited, with just 4 or 5 models per carrier, and a few unlocked choices. If they don’t have the phone you want, you can make a request. Currently the site is pretty barebones and needs a little refinement, but I love the concept. I can think of several reasons why you would want to se a service like this. These days, when high end smartphones can cost $700 or more, paying $50 to test drive a phone for a month is a good idea.
