The time is coming for [livejournal.com profile] lovelybug to get a new Android mobile phone. My feeling is that it should be at least the same resolution as my HTC Desire (ie 480x800), and should be able to be a USB host - ie it should be possible to connect things like digital cameras to it and copy off the photos. Apart from that the most important consideration is cost, though a better battery life would be nice.

Any recommendations? Should we get a phone with a contract, or buy the phone separately and get eg this £10/month deal from 3?

Thanks!

Update: damn, very sorry to hear the USB host thing isn't going to work :-(

Well, some phones can be USB hosts, with a little a lot of faff. But it's not exactly supported, and I note that page hasn't been updated from 2.2 to 2.3.7.

Now, if you can wait for the Galaxy Nexus... one of the Android developers at Google says it will support USB gamepads at least.

Could've sworn I'd seen some other weird Android phone where an OEM had added support for USB host for mass storage, but can't think where/who.
