I think the high-range Android phones have good cameras, with a great UI, touch screen and some awesome games. Check out the Google Nexus, Samsung Galaxy S or Motorola Droid/Droid2

Android and iOS are two different operating systems with different applications available. The games you like to play on the iPhone may not be available on an Android phone. You need to decide what's more important: applications or a camera.

There are many kinds of multi-media phones on the market for you only if you have enough money.
There may be many different phones, but they only use one of three operating systems: Android, iOS, and Windows Phone 7.

The initial price of the phone is insignificant compared to the contract price. With the average monthly price of $100 on a 2-year contract, you'll spend $2,400 on monthly charges. $100 vs $300 is a difference of only 8%. The monthly charges (with the exception of T-Mobile) are exactly the same regardless of how much you pay for the phone.

So which does the Blackberry use? Or do you not consider that a multi-media phone? Of course the OP wants a touchscreen and RIM only has a couple of those models, that might rule it out.

One thing that I see little emphasized these days is synchronization. I'm personally not at all fond of re-entering all my data whenever I change phones. If you stick with the same OS that's (usually) not necessary.

I wouldn't consider a Blackberry to be a media device. I haven't looked at the availability of Blackberry apps lately, but I'll hazard a guess that there aren't a plethora of games available.

I'll certainly agree that multi-media isn't RIM's mainstream focus, but they have started moving to that. You might be right about games and that, like the touchscreen, might rule out Blackberry for the OP-but even without the games Blackberry's are capable of multi-media. At least the new ones I've been looking at are. (Note: I've never used a Blackberry so I could be wrong-and I also don't play games on my phone but I don't believe that gaming is synonymous with multi-media. I take pictures, play music, watch videos, show presentations, use documents & spreadsheets, browse the Web, etc. with my phone. How much more would it take before it's considered multi-media?)
