My trusty old ADP1 is beginning to show it’s age, and I’m thinking that it’s time to get a new Android based smart phone.  So, what should a guy get?  My criteria (to be modified as thoughts come to mind):

  • Not carrier locked
  • Would prefer it compatible with the frequencies used by Rogers (I’ve got about 18 months left on my contract with them).
  • I can install CyanogenMod on it.  More to the point:  I can install the latest versions of Android as they become available.  CyanogenMod seems to be the handiest way to do so.

Personally, I’m thinking either an HTC Desire or a Samsung Galaxy S.

I’m not against a Windows Phone 7 device, but there aren’t any on the market now, and I’m thinking that I don’t want to take the pain of a first generation Windows based device.

If you’ve got any thoughts/suggestions/comments/tips, feel free to post them in the comments.
