    HTC phones ftw. Although they're quite expensive.

    What about the Nokia E75, dunno how much you want to spend but it's a very good deal.

    Found one of those, and they're really nice. Link

    While I care little for phones until such time as they do what I want I will mention most of those requirements are broad and can mean many things:

    bluetooth- as in share ringtones with people, use for file transfer, tethering, PC interfacing and so on.

    microSD (HC?)- camera, music, files, games/applications?

    wifi- internet (in which case you might want to define what the browser is able to do- mobile browsing is still an odd one), VIOP/SIP*, ftp, ssh, VNC......

    simlock/carrier lock or whatever it wants to be called depends on where you get it from mainly.


    *this is not necessarily a phone thing but a provider thing although you did mention not carrier locked and I am not sure of the Dutch laws here (skip over to Belgium or France and it changes for the better if memory serves)

    Well my budget is not that high it's AT MAX €200,- but then it needs to be a really good deal.
    BTW: I don't mind importing...

    Do you mind getting on a three year contract or do you want an unlocked phone?

    HTC phones are good but they run windows which if you run on any phone are still laggy.

    new HTC EVO looks good, and runs android, but it's pretty massive, with a 4.something inch screen.

    Actually most of the newer offerings run android. (AFAIK)

    @OSW Its 4.3 in. Which is huge for a phone.
