Windows 7: What should I get?

What should I get?

Hey Guys and Gals,

My birthday is coming up on the 15th. I have been trying to decide what I want and think the good people at SevenForums should have an input.

What I'm Thinking of Getting:

A Smartphone:

I currently have 1 year left on my contract with Verizon till I can get a discount on a phone when my contract is over. I am wanting to hop on the Smartphone bandwagon but need to find a smartphone on Verizon that isn't uber expensive. I have already ruled out any and every android phone because of the serious fragmentation of that mobile operating system. With the Windows 7 Mobile operating system coming out, I don't want to need a Windows 6 phone. I have been thinking of the Palm Pre+ or a Blackberry with a decent keyboard (Something the Pre lacks).

A Good Media Player:
I currently have a dumb, clunky Walkman S-series mp3 player. I hate it. I have also been thinking of getting a replacement for this terrible device. Right now, I'm looking at Archos tablets, which are nice. A Zune is also something I've been pondering on getting.

So, Fellow SevenForum Posters, What do you think I should get (Try to keep it on the cheap side).

I say you would be better of with a Zune, because you already have a phone... and you can wait for the discount when it comes, but you said you got a ugly mp3 player thats chunky lol, so If I were you I would get a Zune.

That's what I was thinking since I bought a Walkman S-series. I utterly hates my Walkman's interface.

I bought a new phone from the store the other day as a small present. Cost 7.95 $10...Works like a charm!

If you decide to go with the Phone.
If you have even 1 day over a year on your new for 2 plan Verizon will give you a discount. You need to go to a company store to get it and you may have to wait on the rebate. Only 2 weeks for the last one.
I know I've been pretty happy with my Verizon Blackberry. Although the Blackberry works best in urban areas and don't hold the phone from the bottom as you risk covering the internal antenna.

I have found that a good smart phone is also usually a decent media player.

If you can find a couple of more people to agree with me, I believe a decision will follow quickly.

EDIT: I think my next phone will be the Pre.

Good point! Stereo bluetooth and Blackberry works fine.

Get a Verizon sales rep on the line, sometimes they can manipulate the contracts & deals if they need to make a sale. I just got two (2) Lg VX9200 EnV3 phones for a total of $50 after rebates on our family plan contract. It pays to ask questions of the sales rep.

I personally would get a new MP3 player, my birthday was just on March, 8th and I had a iPod Shuffle 2nd Gen and decided to get a new iPod Nano 5G (8 GB) for my birthday (I wanted a iPod Touch but my parents said it was over there budget and they just bought a $400 laptop for me on Christmas) and I absolutely love having my new iPod and Im sure you would feel the same with a new MP3 Player weather its a Zune to a iPod to a Sansa Fuze.
