QWERT smart phone with looks and brain?

I am in the market for a smart phone so could you recommend one that I can buy in Switzerland that has proper keyboard, can play music and videos (more formats the better). Looks stylish and works as advertised? Large screen and all the bells and whistles. Would I be looking at an Android phone?

Not loyal to any brand but interested in quality and functionality.

P.S- No not interested in the blond bimbo called iphone.

Re: QWERT smart phone with looks and brain?

I've grown attached to the Android platform - plenty of apps if needed. May I suggest the HTC Desire ?

No phone has a proper keyboard, a few have mini keyboards and most have virtual keyboards. The IPhone is the best for video and music.

The OP wants a proper keyboard... Androids have virtual keyboards.

Re: QWERT smart phone with looks and brain?

Yeah I meant keyboards that don't take up screen estate. Which is easier to type on? I would assume the real keyboard rather than the virtual one?

Re: QWERT smart phone with looks and brain?

HTC Desire looks bit ugly though. What about my street cred? Is there no blond with brains out there?

Any thing cool looking from HTC in the pipeline? I could wait couple of months if I must. That metal Nokia N9 looks cool too.

Re: QWERT smart phone with looks and brain?

Real keyboards have the slight edge in my experience, Iphone vkbd next, Androids are too small, I had too many errors on mine, the edge of the keyboard is too close to the edge of the screen and my fingers just had too much trouble hitting the P key etc. I can be quite fast on my Iphone but on my Android, after a year, I still have problems.

You might want to rethink your opinion on the iPhone again...
