    First of all, a 1280 x 1024 resolution picture is 2 megapixels, not 9. A 208 Mhz processor isn't going to get you anywhere. I doubt later versions of Android will even run on it. I imagine you would have to find a custom ROM for it and figure out how to root it. Also, you likely have no support from anyone if the phone malfunctions. Why don't you tell us your carrier and what kind of plan and money you have to work with? I would personally avoid knock-offs like the plague.

    Well, if you're staying with ATT and you renew your contract, I imagine the Aria or Backflip will probably come under the $200 range. The Captivate is ATT's best Android phone at the moment. ATT has a raw deal since iPhone runs the show over there. That and ATT doesn't want any third party apps like PDAnet that would take away any revenue from their highway robbery scheme.
