Phone recommendations?

Is there a list of recommended phones for running odk anywhere? Looking for
something in the $200 price range.

Thanks,
Cory

What Android phone should I use?

The Android ecosystem changes too rapidly to recommend one device. In
general, we recommend you get devices that you can source in country
and run the latest Android OS (even though we support Android OS 1.5+
and greater). We recommend you spend a little more to get a higher
quality device, instead of buying the cheapest phone. If you need a
supplier, try amazon.com, newegg.com or ebay.com.

We use Motorola XT720. It is unlocked, cheap, has a connection for a
neck strap, and you can buy it on Amazon.com

It is not going to win any design or speed contests, but it has been
reliable.

Here's a good deal:

I have used the cliqs -- they're upgradeable to 2.1, and have a
physical keyboard. Not a bad device.

Hello!

Resurrecting this thread to ask if anyone has input on sourcing phones to
run ODK (or KoBo) in Liberia. We have a project that's keen to get started
with piloting, sometime...last week :-).

Thank you for any input - will be sure to share ours as we progress,

There seems to be a recent crop of Ideos competitors from a pricepoint
perspective:
http://www.expansys-usa.com/android-smartphones/

in the sub 200 range - samsung has 2 out it seems. Has anyone used these?
the nice thing about them is that they're all relatively recent releases
(not cheap because they're EOL), and ~2.2 based and beyond. However some
reviews i've seen from quick googles seem to indicate atrocious battery
life. Anyone have experience with these recent releases?
