My phone has been dropped on its head one too many times, and I'm thinking about getting one of those fancy phones what can use the Internet and stuff. Any recommendations? Bonus if it's available through T-Mobile (or can be unlocked). Don't say the i-word.

I've been pretty satisfied with the Android platform and developing for it isn't hell.

Well, being a Google phone, there's a built-in Google Maps thing that's better than using it in a browser. It's not painful for web browsing or Google Maps, but if you're in a real hurry it can seem a little slow. I use mine fairly casually. The native E-Mail program is backed by GMail (and works with Google Apps accounts, too) and is very good. Other E-Mail programs on smartphones that I've used were a little frustrating in that they'd either download stuff locally meaning you had to delete messages often or leave everything on the server. Android's just caches locally, but does so pretty well. And it's fast for non-cached stuff though searches seem a little slow, but that could be my imagination — I've noticed searches aren't exactly fast from normal GMail either.
