    My family and I are soon to move to Germany but we will be doing so in stages. My wife is to go first, followed by the rest of us after a month or so. What I am trying to do is find out what phone and carrier is (or will be) available by end of June for her to get. It must be android and have a good data plan. Since I know android well I can easily explain anything to her and set her up on the right apps so that she can do things like share video with me of cars and houses during the selection process, as well as just generally communicate with me. Obviously we'll avoid MSMS and use something like Qik and email and the like to pass info to keep costs down so the data plan is going to be rather important.

    The problem is I have no idea who the best carrier in Germany might be and what android phones are being released there. Hopefully there is someone knowledgeable in the German market here that can help me. I'd like to go high end on the phone so that it will perform well for my wife and so that it will be a good platform for some time. I'd like a snapdragon class phone if possible. I would of course like it to be as inexpensive as possible (who wouldn't) but would rather have up front costs than higher monthly costs. Also we will eventually have multiple phones (when we all get there) so a company that offers family type plans and would allow us to upgrade from one phone to a family plan would be great.

    So, if anyone has any input on this particular topic I would greatly appreciate it. I'm doing my best to get all this information in hand so that my wife can hit the ground running and doesn't have yet one more thing to figure out.

    Thanks in advance.
