They're all web enabled. You're picking a screen size at this point.

Droid, pick your service provider.
I have the HTC EVO 4G on Sprint and it works very well.

I've got an HTC Inspire. It's great for web browsing due to the HUGE screen, makes reading a cinch. The downside is that the screen kills the battery pretty quickly... if you find yourself out overnight or forget to plug your phone in when you go to bed, you're going to have a flat battery the next day. Of course, that can easily be solved by extra chargers at work and on the bike...

Good thing about Android is that you can see the "flash" ad banners. Gotta have em!
Oh and I'm using my Nexus S

The xperia...probably pass. I avoid slider type phones in general since it can break/wear down fairly easy IMO. Any of the Droids for $200 are nice.

Check Costco, better prices than the Verizon store and a better return policy. I like my Droid Charge, it has a nice big bright screen.

+1 or amazon wireless, just be aware that Costco and Amazon has their own ETF separate from Verizon. Not an issue if you plan to stay with Verizon for the length of the contract.

IMO get an X2.
