smart phones

Okay, I’ve talked myself into a smartphone, but I don’t know much about them. Here’s what I want in a phone; I’m sure somebody out there can tell me what phone I want. :)

- a better-than-smartphone-average camera
- either a qwerty keyboard or a highly convincing explanation as to how touchscreens are easy enough to use that a qwerty’s not necessary
- good battery life (not having to charge it every night would be nice)
- wifi

From *looking* at the phones, possibly a Blackberry with a slide-out keyboard is what I’m after. But possibly someone with more smartphone experience can tell me otherwise.
