Default Best Android phone for Rogers?

Hi Folks:

Count me as one of the suckers who fell for the HTC Nightmare on Rogers. Hell, I went and bought it outright two months ago and now I'm staring at an orphaned slab that will never get updated. Thanks Rogers! Great job! I'm really enjoying seeing "Removed support for Android 1.5" on my favourite applications in the Marketplace.

Anyway, to the point: I'm willing to cut my losses on this phone and put it up for sale on Kijiji. What I'm wondering is, what other Android options do I have that will work on Rogers? HTC doesn't count--I'm done with them too. This whole "upgrade to an ancient version" fiasco is enough.

I'm aware the Nexus One will work in EDGE mode on Rogers (and I do have a means to get one). I was hoping for Droid but I see Hellus has their claws on that one. What other viable options are there? I would prefer unlocked (which is what Robbers wouldn't prefer, but since I'm buying outright I don't give a crap what they think).

I'm also patient: I'm more than happy to just wait and see. I'm at my wits end with Rogers but I'm not canceling...my contract is there for 3 years and by then the mobile market here in Canada will have either changed completely or be irrevocably cemented in it's current pathetic state.
