So I have been out of the loop when it comes to the newest smartphones avaliable at the moment.

The basics of what I am looking for

* Android OS 2
* touch screen + qwerty keypad
* WLAN support
* Good battery life (Well better than the G1 which I currently have)
* MicroSD slot (up to 16GB at least)
* 3.5mm audio jack
* 3G 900 / 2100
* USB

Those are all the must haves the rest are just nice to have

* Decent camera
* Flash support

I'm currently looking at the Motorola milestone can anyone else make any other suggestions or comment on their experiences with the milestone

Have you considered the new Dell Lightening???

Its not Android based but it looks very interesting.

Thats got some very nice specs on it and as much as I swear by andriod OS I would definately give the lightening consideration. Pity the release date is set to Q4 of this year :( which may be a bit late for me as I'm having major issues with my G1 and my budget only allows for one new toy every year or so.

Lightning is WinMo7.  The Thunder, however, is Android based.

Other good options could be the HTC Desire, Sony X10. Both are very good, although neither has stellar battery life, the Desire is widely regarded as the best Android phone available at the moment.

Thanks for the suggestions NZtechFreak. Unfortunately neither of these has a qwerty keypad, which is one of my major requirements for a new smartphone and the main reason I bought the g1 that i currently own. Its looking like the motorolla milestone might be taking the cake at the moment.
