While eye shopping along these lines I made 3 picks for their {with emphasis on, in lieu of Symbian Nokia, for the SymbianOS tweaks addict that I am} innovativeness, design, with a capital C for curious.

MotoZine ZN5 Packs a 5-Megapixel Camera

The first product from Motorola's partnership with Kodak, the Motorola MotoZine ZN5 features a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, Xenon flash, 4GB of optional external memory, and settings for low-light environments. The camera also has a fun panoramic mode, which stitches together continuous shots into a single extended image. Pictures can be uploaded and shared in one click to the Kodak gallery or any other photosharing site. Other notable features of the Motozine include a 2.4-inch high-resolution screen, dual compatibility for GSM and Wi-Fi, and stereo Bluetooth.
Already available in China, the MotoZine ZN5 is expected to roll out worldwide later in 2008. Motorola has not yet announced pricing or a carrier for North America.

BlackBerry's Clamshell Pearl
Since the beginning of the BlackBerry, this iconic messaging device has been synonymous with the flat, easy-access candy bar style phone. But with the new BlackBerry Pearl 8220 Flip--Research in Motion's first flip phone--the paradigm changes. And it's about time: Flip phones hold a lot of appeal, and a recent J.D. Power study noted that nearly 70 percent of current cell phone customers use a flip phone. The Pearl 8220 Flip is more compact than other BlackBerry models, making it easy to slip into a pocket. The phone has an outside secondary display for previewing calls and messages, and for viewing the time. The keyboard looks similar to that on other Pearl models: It has 20 keys, and uses SureType Technology coupled with a spelling checker. The new phone has surprisingly strong multimedia chops, too: Turn the phone on its side to watch video in wide-screen mode; upload pictures to Facebook or Flickr; or use BlackBerry Media Sync to transfer music from your iTunes collection to your phone. The built-in GPS and integrated BlackBerry Maps (for location-based information and directions) will help you find your way, and integrated Wi-Fi supports phone calls and data streaming.
The BlackBerry Pearl 8220 Flip will be sold via T-Mobile in the third quarter of this year.

Affordable Samsung Rant

Ideal for text messaging, the Samsung Rant has a horizontal-slide full QWERTY keyboard. The handset also comes with a 2-megapixel camera/camcorder, stereo Bluetooth, expandable memory (up to 16GB), and quick access to Sprint Navigation, Sprint Music Store, and Sprint TV. The Rant is one of many new phones to adopt Sprint's new OneClick user interface, which allows users to customize their phone's home screen with their favorite features and content.
The Samsung Rant will be available in October for $50 with a two-year contract. It comes in red or black, though Best Buy will offer an exclusive purple option as well.
