    Here's what Im thinking....

    Xperia X10 (expensive but it has everything I want and need! Many features! Also I can get 3g on ATT here in the US)

    Acer Liquid (Not sure on the design yet, looks cool but weird at the same time, not really a fan of white, No Camera Flash, Cheap! US 3g!)

    Milestone (Looks ok, Big nice screen!, No US 3G for me, Not a fan of keyboards...)

    Htc Legend (Great looking phone, Small screen/low res, No US 3g)

    Galaxy Spica (No Camera Flash, looks laggy, No US 3G, low res/small screen, Divx!!, Nice Design!)

    No Nexus one Please....

    i saw the walkthrough of xperia x10 on youtube and felt greatly disappointed by the UI.

    i would choose between htc and moto here.

    depends on if you want a hardware keyboard or not

    the acer liquid also comes in wine-red and i'd go for that one rather than the legend for the screen res alone - comes in very handy especially in web browsing

    out of the ones you mentioned, i'd definitely go for the liquid, but that's because i'm not a fan of the milestone's design and don't really fancy a hardware keyboard - if you do, go for that one

    Im actually really considering the milestone right now as I can get it for a good price I have a few questions if anyone can please answer,

    How is the screen quality compared to the N1?

    I can update it to 2.1 correct?

    Will there be future updates to it? 2.2, 3.0 etc.

    Is it better looking in person? I mean its not ugly but I dunno lol

    Its not a terribly big phone right? ( I have HD2 now)

    The milestone should have the Market off the bat correct?

    Thanks in advance!

    according to a quick google, the milestone's screen is more responsive and has better colors than the nexus, but doesn't have as good contrast

    2.1 is out for it yes, but only motorola knows if it'll be updated beyond that

    all android phones should have market access out of the box afaik (?)

    as for the size and aesthetics, you're best off going to a mobile store to see for yourself

    i would choose legend ,its good looking,slim,Sense UI(major deal breaker ),htc sync and htc is quickest in rolling out updates.

    Milestone feels bulky with external keyboard stuffed into it.
    As far as updates are concerned almost all android phones are upgradable,its the carriers who blocks them.
