Default Need a little help in the 'gadgets' department

Ok so, I was thinking about getting an iPod Touch but also I wanted a new phone. I'm looking for a phone with a full keyboard (good for texting) and good internet browser as well as a good camera and a music player. What do you think I should get an iTouch or a new phone (if so please suggest which one would be the best in your opinion).

Thanks in advance!

I ditched having a cell phone for an iPod Touch and it's been great. I save a fortune on monthly charges and yet I can keep in contact when I'm around town because there is free Wi-Fi everywhere so I can message or email people any time I want.

Why not just get an iPhone?

Well the problem with iPhone is is that I already have a phone in AT&T and have unlimited texting and unlimited data plan on it... iPhone requires a whole new independent set of plans.

HTC Touch Pro



windows phones have their ups and downs like any other phone, but i've had pretty good luck with this one. it's got the full keyboard for firing off texts with a serious quickness, 3.2 megapixel camera, and it uses SD card memory (8 GB or 16GB). it comes loaded with 2 web browsers - internet explorer and opera. the opera browser is very well designed and offers a similar experience to safari (minus the multi-touch - it uses a double tap for zooming).

i think the touch pro 2 is out atm. or maybe even look into the HTC android powered phones (most have keyboards).
