    Based on a similar question a few weeks ago, someone responded "Dell Streak"... it's an android phone with a 5" screen. Amazingly flat and fits in my pocket. Beautiful screen. Bestbuy has it for $49 with contract. If you decide to look into it, make sure it's running android 2.2
    In my case, it was running 1.6 and the BestBuy rep installed the newer version.
    My brother then bought one and installed 2.2 himself.

      $49 on contract is an absolute bargain for the Dell Streak. It's a full-featured and powerful Android 2.2 phone with a huge screen (5") that should make mobile browsing of complex websites a cinch. Is it currently able to run Flash video and content (now that it's running 2.2)?

    I like HTC phones and you can update automatically so no worries.

    My job is in the telecoms sector, and if your looking a decent android handset, I recommend the samsung galaxy. It's reliable and a great phone to use. If you choose a blackberry avoid touch screen BB's like something nasty you would pick up holiday. i used one- not a pleasant experience.

    Apart from that BB with the regular typepad are a brilliant handsets for keeping up to date with your busines.

    You can't go wrong with the Blackberry Bold, after several drops on concrete still works fine.

    I vote for windows mobile. It works quite well with the system. If you want a phone for fun, I may choose iphone.

    The second business choice is android. Since google has many network applications supporting business online.

    iPhone. No I'm not a apple fanboy, but the fact that I can control my entire business in my pocket is appealing.

    Email, Wordpress (personal site, not wordpress.com), App for all my clients information, games when I get bored, twitter, ego (monitors web stats), docstogo, dropbox, godaddy (If I come up with a good domain name), Paypal, Discover Card (personal but still could be business oriented), Dragon dictation (easiest way to send an email, ever....), and a scheduling app to make sure I'm doing the right thing at the right time.

    Could I ask for more?

    Sure it's a tad expensive, I mean my bill is $139.99 a month, but it's worth it to me.

      Everything you've said about your iPhone can also pretty much be said for any of the more powerful Android phones out there. It'd be even easier to browse/view content on the larger screens of many of the newer Android phones, who have screens in the 4" to 5" range.
