    I'm looking for a device that can do everything but without the phone feature(calls, text). I now this may sound weird but I already have a phone that I'm happy with... A few weeks ago, my car was burglarized and I lost my laptop, mp3 player, camera, video camera, gps navigation, gps watch... I'm looking for a device that can do everything that I've lost but won't hold me down with a phone contract...

    Something sleek enough to fit in my pocket while I'm running or doing physical activity, crystal clear sound quality(very important), takes excellent pictures and video, GPS navigation for navigation and if possible(but not necessary), could track my movements like a garmin forerunner, check email over WiFi, great battery life... I've never owned a smartphone so I don't know if the features I need of the device works if I have no contract with it.

    no iphones please, I don't want to be bogged down with itunes. I'm looking at Garmin-Asus Nuvifone or Droid X or Evo 4G or Nexus One(love the clean design) but I don't know if there are better options for me.

    More of a laptop replacement(so maybe like a tablet pc) but has to be small like a phone so I can carry it easily everywhere I go....

    Search for the few threads on here dealing with an android version of the ipod touch. Like you I want something without a phone/contract, mine will be for the wife/kids.
    Archos 5, creative zii egg, etc.

    +1 -- the recent thread mentioned above had very similar requirements, IIRC.

    Is there any reason you wouldn't just get a new phone like you listed above and replace the current one and get all features? I'm on the nexus one with a tmo no contract plan. It would.coast about the same or so for a.n1 as a tablet.
