I am a registerd Architect and Engineer who is constantly active throughout the day I am looking for a smartphone that would integrate all of my MS products like Outlook, Word and Excel along with conferencing, voice dialing and any application known that can provide me a portable office on the road. What is the best phone that would satisfy the above.

Thanks

Regardless of budget, I'd start looking into the new Windows Phone 7. Depending on the model, it should meet your needs.

Depends upon what features are provided. Obviously lower is better but if the features I need place the phone in a higher catagory then I am willing to weigh that feature with an increase in price, but if I were to guess about $250-400USD

Motorola Milestone(Droid) is one of the best phones in your price range.

HD7 is a good choice if you want the biggest screen.(However,it's reported to have ghosting problems)
If you need something more pocket friendly,have a look at HTC Mozart

Dont get the Motorola Milestone (Droid in US) - really flimsy. especially for a business user.

If you want to go Android (which is compatible with MS word, office, outlook, etc) I would say go the Motorola Droid Pro, for a smart business looking design. It is aimed at the BlackBerry market demographic afterall.

Other options would be HTC android based phones. These are very good quality phones with a range of prices and features. Look around your area for what is available on your local carriers. HTC is a brand which makes business-oriented phones as well as consumer-oriented. HTC would be my choice, purely as they have a good track-record, but I am biased :D 

I notice you want 'conferenceing' - by which i assume you mean face-to-face video? If so, you will be wanting a phone with a front-facing camera preferably with a decent megapixel size and quality. This means you are generally limited to the most recent models of android phone, which you do pay a premium for. However, if you are happy to go with say a slightly older Nokia with a Symbian-based OS, you can get a model of phone with a front facing camera pretty cheaply
