    Only problem with the SE Satio and SE Xperia (I also wanted that one) - is that they are BLOODY HUGELY EXPENSIVE still, even on the R1000 per month contract!

    OK Brent - then the Samsung M8800 is out - it's ONLY drawback, is NO Wi-Fi!

    I second or third the HTC Touch Pro, but without Touchflow. The phone is a dog with Touchflow running.

    Do you have one Mek? What's the browsing like. I have the I-Phone 3G on my other contract and see the new 3G S is coming out next month. Just not sure whether I should get that, the HTC or Blackberry Bold 9000.

    The Sony Ericsson C905 has a 8.1 megapixel camera but the new Sony Ideo or Ideu however they spell it, has a 12 megapixel camera ;) - think it is expensive :(
