    I'm planning on getting one of these soon. Some of the best contracts I've found only give me 500mb of internet, bearing in mind I'll only be doing the usual everyday things like browsing facebook and similar websites (rather than streaming or downloading), will this be enough?

    You should also bear in mind that, any data transmitted to/from the phone over a wireless network will not count towards your usage. So if you have wireless at home, connect it to that, then do all of your big data usage (downloading apps and such) there.

    However good the Desire Z is, I feel it my duty to ask if you've considered the Nexus S as well. Provided you can find a similar contract, the latter is significantly more time proof...

    How is the Nexus S more time proof, apart from getting updates straight away, then yes but other than that I can't see anywhere else where.

    Will the Tegra 2 actually be a usable phone though? :P Or will you have to kind of plunge into a world of insane 3D graphics to even use the phone? :P

    Seriously though, I highly doubt that Nvidia will actually be able to pull many developers into developing for it... I have no doubt that whatever they do develop for it will be insane, though :P

    Firstly, yeah, the updates. 3.0 and a few OS' updates afterwards are pretty much guaranteed. Secondly, NFC Thirdly, front facing camera

    Keyboard really isn't necessary.
    I don't want a phone without one. But that's just my personal preference.
