I'd like to be able to browse web pages on a device that is portable, probably using 3G under Vodafone.  I'll be using the Vodafone $1 a day prepay system.  So the choices seem to be:

Laptop with an external device such as a Sony Erricson V640 (cost $600+ for the laptop + $300 for the cellphone)

Blackberry ~$900

IPhone 3G ~$1000

Not much to choose from, are there any other choices?

Thanks.

I would go for a nokia 6121 as the device is 3g 900/2100mhz not just 2100 like the v640i and there is now a very big 3g footprint in rural areas on 900mhz around NZ.

If you're limiting yourself to 10MB per day then I'm guessing you won't be doing a lot of browsing. Something like Opera Mini on any Nokia S60 device is a great mobile browser - or are you wanting a laptop to view sites full size?
