It depends on you carrier, for AT&T, the iPhone is probably the best touch screen phone on the market without a doubt, the plans and data charges are very pricey though. Some new touch screen phones are for the HTC set. HTC has some great new phones. For Verizon, the HTC Droid Eris, is a great pick, it tends to be a bit laggy sometimes for some people. The Motorola Droid has dual touch screen and keyboard, it is a great phone and very stylish even though the keyboard is a bit flimsy for the average person and the phone is a bit to bulky, but try not to let that fool you. Touch screens usually stay good for an extended period of time, so if your on your 2 year plan, you will be fine. Still remember that with the touch screen, you may want to get screen protectors which every phone has a set. Hope that helps!
