    Please help me choose my Mobile upgrade!

    Ok, I am really genuinely stuck on choosing my next upgrade. I like the look of the i-phone however the topic is so torn between complete fans and haters.

    I really need a smartphone with all the gadgets.. Google maps, email which I can hook up to my gmail account..Video play , Full MMS support. a fairly alright camera... Support for games and support for me changing the theme backgrounds etc as I get bored quick.. It has to be slick, stylish and small enough to keep in your pocket without it making you look like you have a small copy of the Oxford dictionary with you.

    Links to your recomendations would be most appreciated.


    Thank you

    There is only one answer - HTC Touch HD. 'tis the phone of the Gods.

    You just have to look at the iPhone specs to see it's just designed to keep fanboys happy.

    Touch HD has glorious screen (bigger than iPhone), Google Maps, Push e-mail, 5MP camera, basically everything you could want in a phone.

    Another site gives a good review between the two, just can't find it at the moment.

    Got it free on £35.

    Comes with 8GB MicroSD, will take a 16GB card. Gives more freedom than built in, non expandable, storage.

    Go for the G1 from T-Mobile or the G2 with Voda when it comes out. Android is ace. I love my G1 to bits. Endless fun with it.

    As you use gmail, the G1 might be nice I got mine free @ £30 a month with unlimited data+texts & 800 mins of calls.

    G2 looks to be nice but the got rid of the qwerty keyboard which put me off.

    Orange (PAC'd number over from O2 as O2 refuse to stock phones better than the iPhone so as not to upset Apple). Seems Orange have gotten rid of it from their website though, can still get it from CPW ( HTC Touch HD on Dolphin, £35, 600 minutes, unlimited txt, 18 months - The Carphone Warehouse ), though they're charging about £98 for the phone now, should think you can haggle them down though. Still cheaper than an iPhone!

    iTunes will only work with Apple products (or the Palm Pre until Apple fix that loophole!), WMP will sync the HTC Touch HD though. Fairly easy switching, took me all of 20 minutes to rip all my music off my iPod, get it organised properly, and uploaded to the TouchHD.

    I already have mine all sorted in iTunes on OS X and WMP is a windows thing and I want to steer clear of windows would be good if someone could post back to let me know once the iTunes apple loop hole has been fixed but until then think I will stick with iPhone

    unless you know of a way around that ? Windows obviously does not read HFS+ and I dont really want to use virtual machines etc for a phone.
