[olug] Android phone recommendations?

I was looking forward to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, however, with the 
absence of a micro-sdhc card slot, I'm a little bummed.  I have music 
and movies that I carry with me, and while the music locker is cool, 
there isn't anything for movies.  For the photographer, it only has a 
5MP rear camera.  And 4.65" might be a little large.

My next choice is the Droid RAZR.  It looks like a solid piece of 
hardware.  8MP camera rear-camera, micro-sdhc card slot, very thin.  It 
too, will have Ice Cream Sandwich (Android OS 4.0) in early 2012.  But, 
it has a locked boot-loader.  Perhaps this will change once Google 
completes it's acquisition of Motorola Mobility.

All About Android is a good program.  Highly recommended.

It is 18months old now though, which is ancient in phone technology. I am keeping my eye out for what will be available come June when I can upgrade.
