Android N00b

Hello All,
I am in New York City trying to decide whether to buy ATT's Captivate at full price or cancel my contract and go to another carrier and get something cheaper. I am reading so many reviews of different phones that I am slowly losing my mind. I am soooo bored with my Blackberry and am anti-Apple for reasons unknown even to myself.
I have lots of reading to do on this site. I am sure I'll find answers to all my questions.
Thanks in advance to all forum members for all the good info.
