    Best mobile phone

    Yes, sorry, another one of them posts...

    Contract is up for renewal in the next month so thought I would start to take a look at what handests are currently out there.

    So, what's the "best" multimedia handset available at the moment?

    I currently have a HTC Touch and would like a handset with more multimedia (watching downloaded content etc) capabilities as well as occassionally browsing t'internet.

    New iPhone will be making an appearance soon, and they've fixed a lot of the stuff that put people off the first time around.

      The HTC Touch HD seems to be well regarded by those I know that own the device, and both the HTC Touch Diamond2 and HTC Touch Pro2 are worth a look. El Reg seem to consider HTC devices to be the best iPhone alternatives at the moment.
      Where are we going? And what’s with this hand basket?

        I'm looking at the N97 (Nokia) when it comes out next month to replace the iPhone.

        It has 32Gb onboard memory expandable by a further 16Gb (microSD)
        Same 3.5 Inch screen as the iPhone but a better resolution
        Full Qwerty keyboard

          I had a Nokia N95 ... my biggest gripe was that it chewed through a battery charge like a beaver on speed.
          At the moment, I've got the HTC. Apart from a crappy camera, I can't complain at all - way better than the N95. I'd suggest changing the browser to Skyfire.
          The close proximity of the letters 'G' and 'T' are the reason I'll never again send an important email and end it with "Regards" ....

            Is that with the Android OS?

            iPhone 3Gs, N97, HTC HD and Palm Pre are all contenders.

              HTC Touch Diamond2

              Fellow contractor has a Touch Diamond2 and it appears to be very good. Smaller than the iPhone too.

              There is also a nice UI on this phone which masks Window Mobile 6.1 to a certain extent.

              Quite tempted to buy one to be honest with you.
              I'm better than dirt. Well, most kinds of dirt, not that fancy store-bought dirt... I can't compete with that stuff.

                I've yet to see one, but it is getting some good reviews. I did have the original Touch Diamond for a couple of days, but wasn't overly impressed with it both in terms of performance and build quality.

                An update to Windows Mobile 6.5 will be available for the Diamond2 at some point as well.

                  No, it's the Diamond2 with TouchFlo. I looked at the original iPhone and wasn't that impressed (cost v features). The Nokia I liked, but the battery life was too big an issue.
