Washington, DC, USA
I like to have a hardware QWERTY keyboard on my smartphone for writing email and longer text. This phone improves on the MyTouch 3G Slide in several ways, especially in the camera department. It's also a quad-band GSM phone so it should work almost anywhere in the world.
In my "film noir" top 5. Set in post-WWII Vienna when the city was divided into four international zones. An American blunders into the web, but learns that the friend who offered him a job has just been killed in an accident. Though everyone tells him to just go home, he stubbornly keeps chasing shadows until he finds out more than he wanted to know.
