If money were no object, what smartphone would you get next, and please give at least one reason.

Smartass reasons like "because I can afford it", and "Ain't never gonna waste money on a smartphone" exempted.

Im ditching my iPhone 4S for a Nokia Lumia 900 when it launches in the UK, because it looks great. I've been with iPhone since the first one, and I'm bored of it, I'm bored of iOS, I want to try something new.

A Windows Phone 8 if it's worthy compared to WP7.5, or else a... Not sure between the iPhone and the Android, possibly an Android since they're less expensive

In all seriousness, something akin to xpPhone.

Nothing surpasses the accessibility, amount of (freeware) programs (not friggin' crap apps), flexibility and reliability (Android, I speak of you - you don't have it at all) of x86 platform, given that I could run either Windows or Linux, or even multiboot. I don't care how unfitting desktop OS may be for small screens. Add pinch-to-zoom driver (or perhaps even at hardware level) and you're good to go.
Besides, I don't know how well it works in practice, but xpPhone is said to have hybrid mode - waking PC part only when needed, phone part itself may run for five days from a single charge. That, my dear people, is so damn obvious that it's genius. Well, I wouldn't mind beefier battery, anyway. Oh, and definitely a hardware QWERTY, with control keys, too.

Long story short - I'd want my desktop stuffed in Galaxy Note like, tops, slob. Could be thicker, because of battery.

ALL CURRENT SMARTPHONES SCUK!!1! If Pocket PC weren't dead already, it would have died of shame.

I run an android phone, Galaxy S2 with a new rom, and I love it. I'm a huge fan of Android.

My next phone may be an iPhone. I'm sick to death of every accessory being built for a phone I don't have. Specifically car stereos.

I'm most likely going to pick up a BlackBerry 10 phone by the end of the year. After watching the BBJam event and all the developer reviews on the Alpha device it looks very promising for RIM... but I will be interested to see what the new iPhone, Nexus and WP8 devices have in store too. Such an exciting year for mobiles.

I'm sort of weird with phones.. I prefer to have something that isn't the most popular, which is why I use my BlackBerry Bold 9900 over my Galaxy Nexus.

Galaxy Nexus. Love that it'll get OS updates as quickly as Google releases them and I really love the high-resolution screen.

My iphone 3G is still going strong but I'm tired of iOS. At first it was great but eventually you notice all the flaws in it's design so I'm thinking about the next blackberry phone. I love my playbook with it's gestures and having QNX in my pocket would be nice.
