My long wait for a gPhone

Well, now that it's clear that we won't be seeing any gPhones until sometime in the 2nd half of 2008, I have a difficult decision to make: what phone will I use for the next 8-12 months until the first Android-powered phones are available? (And that's assuming that at least one of the first models to go on sale will be one I want to buy.) I'm beyond tired of my Treo 700p, but so far I haven't found a phone that has quite the right mix of QWERTY keyboard, 3G connectivity, and support for Google's Java-based Mobile Gmail client. Some of the new BlackBerrys come close, but I don't love the UI so much, and while I've gotten Mobile Gmail working on Windows Mobile, the experience isn't as seamless or well-integrated as it is on my Treo 700p. I might just keep waiting....
