Re: What should i get

Just to recap, even if you buy the HTC Nexus One or Samsung Nexus S subsidized, it will be UNLOCKED?

 

As far as the OP question goes, get your wife an iPhone 4S.  That's my recommendation.  If it was the OP who needed an upgraded from the 4, I'd say wait a year.  IMO, Android is just "there" yet and there are too many issues and/or bugs with the OS largely due to the OS being fragmented.  Personally, I am done with Android and I am going to the iPhone 5 (next year).

Yes, again, all Nexus phones are unlcoked but that doesn't mean you don't hava to sign a 3-year contract.

 

The experience on Android is different from one device to another and  that's one of the main reason of it's success (worlwide: Android is the n°1 smartphone OS with twice the market share of iOS (iPhone)).

If you buy a phone with the Google experience (Nexus), HTC experience, Sony Ericsson experience, Samsung experience or LG experience ... you get a different user experience but you can still use the same apps and have access to the same apps.

With the iPhone, you have one good and easy experience... and that's it. Every iPhone users use their iPhones the same way.

 

I think that Nexus phones user experience are good enough compared to the iPhone and if you buy a Nexus S (or the next Nexus), you can't really go wrong. You won't suffer from fragmentation since you're using the same phone as the Andrid app developers and get the updates first.

... and access to Google services is way better on Android ... just like Facebook/Twitter/Skype/LastFM... integration in the OS.
