Since you are asking for help, the minimum would be to put those URL as links to make it easier for others to check the models...

or you could make GZ automatically parse un-linked urls :)



TBH I wouldn't spend less than 199 for an android.

Have you tried googling the reviews of each model of phone?
Checked out the manufacturers website or used the compare features on the teleco websites?

I wouldnt reccomend the Sony Ericsson X10 as these are end of line (well about to be) and the Sony Xperia models are the new breed (Xperia U, Xperia P (this one might be going cheap somewhere and packed full of features)).

Stretch the budget and get a Samsung galaxy ace 2 or an HTC desire X. Anything less isn't really worth buying if you want a good experience

To be fair I would be keen on any of the phones you've mentioned - the 2 degrees smart touch is on special tomorrow at Noel leeming for $45 that's the best deal I've seen on a budget handset.

Can your budget stretch to $199 the Htc desire x is 199 at the warehouse and is a much better phone.

Motorola Atrix 2 is another good phone to look into, bought one of these to upgrade Dad's Xperia Active this christmas and he's loving it!
