The Nokia devices are way cool but they are pricey.

You can get an Acer Aspire One for $300-$350 and run a full blown Fedora
on it (1Gb RAM, 160Gb HD, 1024x600 screen)

The iPhone is what it is. I got a Motorola Android G2 about a month ago
and I love it and it seems to have 'Corporate Mail' application which is
specifically designed for Exchange server activity (but I've never tried
it).
