T-Mobile MyTouch 3G by HTC

Carrier: T-Mobile
Price: $180-$600

Pros: If you're on T-Mobile but lust for an iPhone, this is as good as it gets. This Android 1.5-driven touch screen syncs Microsoft Exchange and Outlook e-mail and gives users voice-command versions of Google goodies like its browser and mapping. The MP3 player is better than most non-Apple products, while the 3.2-inch display does wonders for video. It's also a travel-friendly GSM.

Cons: Aspiring iPhones have to take the good with the bad. The MyTouch comes with a measly 4 gigabytes of memory that would be easy enough to upgrade if the memory card slot wasn't as inaccessible as Baghdad's Green Zone. The underpowered 3.1-megapixel camera lacks a flash, its voice quality is that of a refurbished squawk box and its virtual keyboard makes dialing and other interface more difficult than necessary.
