My vote is for the Samsung Epic 4G. The Galaxy S is an amazing phone itself, add a keyboard and it's perfect!

If you don't want to go to Sprint, they have a version of the normal Galaxy S for each carrier.

Suhweet! Man I would just feel naked without my Qwerty!

And ohhhhh no... I would not deviate from T-Mobile. Every since I have switched to the 3G BB I can browse and talk flawlessly! Their network is strong around my area. And I am currently on their Grandfather price pkg which is the lowest of any carrier for the features I have. Oh did I mention... I'm not on contract either.

Yup. I just need a keyboard. I still have the G1, and haven't found another phone that I like with a keyboard yet.

T-Mobile is also very good in my area, plus I have their HSPA+ network updated in Seattle too! So I get fast 3G speeds on a pretty reliable network. Glad Seattle is one of T-Mobile's good areas.

You should look into the T-mobile Android My Touch Slide...full qwerty keyboard.

Well if any fanboy can't see the obvious potential and more importantly... Expandability of Android phones... Although I love my BB, the Android phones are too amazing to overlook.

Gingerbread is Android 3.0, TX. Recent OS versions:

1.5: Cupcake
1.6: Donut
2.0/2.1: Eclair
2.2: Froyo
3.0: Gingerbread

And the Galaxy S variants (one available for every carrier under different names) are looking to be the king **** Android handsets until late in the year when dual-core monsters running Gingerbread start coming out. MINIMUM requirements for Gingergread are 1Ghz, with higher or dual-core recommended, 512MB+ RAM, 3.5" or better screen (4+" recommended, with a resolution of 1280x760), etc. etc. Should be the hotness.

you dont need QWERTY anymore. I used to be about physical keyboards, but the one on my Incredible works great. Once Swype comes out the physical keyboard will have even less use

Hardware keyboards are only good on blackberry/nokia e71 type of phones. Big keyboards aren't that friendly on phones.
