Have you looked into a Blackberry? For your use, I think that you would find a BB rather useful. ATT will have the new BB Torch, a touch screen phone, but with a slide out keyboard. I have a BB Tour 9630 and I find it does great with email, texting, and phone calls. The only downside is the Internet browser on it, but if you went with the Torch, RIM has a new browser on it that appears to be 100 times better than the old one I have.
