    If you want to code the tables inside a Page or Post, the Ultimate TinyMCE plugin has features to create/edit tables while editing.

    That's not even a WordPress site. That sort of CMS functionality costs thousands to write from scratch. I would consider hiring someone and seeing if they can design some custom templates and custom post types for you.

    @roggershaw I've implemented this functionality recently in WP. I'll get back to you on how I did it when I have some time.

    Just a quick question. How are you adding the specs for the mobile phones? Are you using custom fields? I found it very easy to enter data using the Advanced Custom Fields plugin by Elliot Condon. It wasn't difficult to add data and then create a page using the IDs of the products I wanted to compare and throwing them in a loop to get the specs. The only problem is that you have to transpose the data to get the specs in tabular form.

    I'll get back to you if you are still interested.
