RFI: futurephones?

The lure of sort-of affordable cellular internet has me wanting a 3g phone. The iphone is an obvious front-runner, but I'm not terribly happy with the degree of control that apple demands over them. Does anyone have recommendations for other 3g phones?

I want something that does;

  • Web browsing (my current blackberry surprisingly does not)

  • Calendaring, including syncing to the desktop. Though I suppose I could just do it live to yahoo calendar online if it came to it.

  • Mp3 playing, because I need a backup device for when my ipod dies.

  • A camera - doesn't have to be a good one, but I'm getting annoyed by not having a quick-n-dirty camera on hand.

  • Bluetooth



Nice to haves;

  • Voice dialling - the BB does this well, and I've gotten used to it.

  • Wifi - because while I want the phone for the 3g internet, if I can get by without it...



I don't care about getting e-mail on my phone.

Any suggestions besides the iphone?
