Fascinate is still king for the lowest SAR rating?
The new Revolution by LG comes close but the fascinate and its derivatives (continuum for one) still seem to come out ahead.
The Fascinate's SAR rating: Head: 0.57 W/kg; Body: 0.52 W/kg
The Revolution's SAR rating: Head: 0.77 W/kg; Body: 0.95 W/kg
Most any other smartphone: Head: 1+ W/kg; Body: 1+ W/kg
Judging by past threads on SAR, very few people care or know what a SAR rating is. For everyone else, this is for you.

Thanks for posting this, adjangs, I had never heard of SAR. This makes me feel good about my Fascinate all over again
oh yeah, for the rest of us, save a click... Specific absorption rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lateline - 01/06/2011: Mobiles possibly carcinogenic: WHO
"Mobiles 'possibly carcinogenic': WHO"
"A possible cancer risk, but not proven. A comprehensive, international review of mobile phone users named it as an increased, but not definitive, cancer risk.
The World Health Organisation's cancer agency is suggesting people go hands-free or text until more is known about the devices."
