Personally, I'd settle for something with a good 3.2"+ touchscreen, wi-fi, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The samsung omnia HD looks good, but it runs symbian (is it better or worse than winmo?) and will probably come to Verizon. And any HTCs will probably be expensive as hell, the Fuze is still $299 at best buy w/o data package. (You can get it for $149 off Amazon otherwise)
Yep, looks like Europe gets all the good phones.
Yeah, I was looking into the Omnia HD, I just wish it had American 3G. Then again, I probably wouldn't use data anyways because its so expensive. However, now that I think about it, if I did buy a normal phone from AT&T (non-smartphone), I could buy the cheaper non-smartphone plan, and then just insert the SIM into whatever unlocked phone I get.
*sighs* Too bad Verizon is getting the Omnia HD, I wish AT&T would pick up some good smartphones, but of course, you're right. They don't want competition for their iPhone.
So how about any good unlocked phones (GSM) coming to the US? Probably one that fits the requirements of my previous post, or is comparable to the Samsung Omnia HD? Hoping it has American 3G (AT&T, not T-Mobile).
EDIT: Hmm, LG Arena seems to fit, other than its not a smartphone according to what I see. No Symbian or WinMo. I can only find phones that meet all requirements except one. Also, I think I'm scrapping the idea of a full QWERTY to help open up my choices. There aren't that many touchscreen + full QWERTY phones other than HTC.
