Wow what a tangled web is the the cell phone market...omg I just want to get a phone that will not be outdated next month, has a decent media player, good cam, good internet connect, touchscreen k/b and hopefully gps ready(already have one in car but...).
Also, it needs to be unlocked.
I tried looking at the online deals but I just can't make a decision with all the information that's available...too much input will surely make my head explode!



...any sound advice will be very acceptable..tyvm.

what provider????


Mobile GPS is good for location services, not viable as a dedicated gps for your vehicle. 1 phone call will ruin your day using a cellphone for incar navigation

what applications you want to use?

I'm on a pay as you go plan thru AT&T (using a Motorola Razr).

The cellphone gps is needed only for short trips into 'uncharted' territory...by foot, of course. Something I could use to more easily find my way back to Point A, for instance.

I'm not really sure that I want or need any x-tra apps...the phones all seem to come with what I really use; media player, camera, games. I usually just use MyCast for weather updates...not sure if there is a better way. I do like the touchscreen k/b feature, very fast for texting.
Other than that I like it pretty basic...hope that helps Confused

My Moto Droid GPS works just fine while on a phone call... I mean it can be somewhat annoying when people talk over the TTS but I manage. Oh wait, AT&T doesn't have those so you wouldn't know, sry Bubba.

No, but we have plenty of other Android phones. I'm rocking an Aria myself and it kicks big ass
