PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nielsen's latest smartphone numbers show Apple's iPhone by far the most popular device among mobile computing hardware, but Android in a strong lead as the most popular OS. But while it's great to have choices in hardware, it can certainly be maddening to have to choose, especially if you don't have the fortitude to keep up with what's new on the market. So, dear readers, for the benefit of those who might be in the market for an Android handset, which one is best?

It isn't the perfect phone but it has this going for it:
1) 4G in over 150 cities (my fastest: 10 Mbps)
2) Fast and can be overclocked to as high as 1.8 GHz (I run at 1.3 because battery life is also important).
3) Fully rootable, S-OFF.
4) Cyanogen 7 supports it. MIUI if you like that better.
5) Vibrant (heh) user community on XDA-Developers.com
6) Reasonable in all ways.
7) Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S with its defective GPS and total lack of anything from Samsung, I've had really terrific warranty support. And my GPS works great!
8) World phone.
9) T-Mobile.
10) Gorilla glass.

I think for most people, the #3, 4, 5 are the key.

I'd improve it with dual CPU, a 4" screen, slightly bigger battery, the new 42 Mbps 4G, a car dock.
