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...

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.

i like my wife's Samsung Galaxy on T-Mo (Vibrant).

personally i'd wait a month or so (october) for the next round of WP7 phones and get one of those.

I used to not like exclusive touch screen phones, but after coming from the G1 (yes ancient Android phone) to the Samsung Nexus S. It wasn't as bad.
