Default New phone, what do i get?

Hello folks,

I decided to change my current mobile (Iphone 3G) to something else.
It's not that i gave up on Iphones, it's an awesome, smooth, powerful and classy machine but i want to try something new and i need your suggestions.

I've been reading about Android for sometime now and it seems to be gaining ground fast, let alone my fascination towards open source & Google especially that it's based on Unix (IOS is too though).
So bottom line, I'm looking for an Android OS, which distribution & version do you suggest and why.

Samsung, HTC, Nokia... which brand and model do you think is best deal of high performance for best value (providing hardware specs would be great).

Better be a solid machine too, i don't wanna change it after falling the first time. Iphone does a good job when it comes to this.

Thanks in advance =)

I prefer to take my time and find the best i could get instead of rushing it and hitting a wall.

Samsung Galaxy S II or HTC Sensation.
similar specs, but based on my experience with HTC and the great software and firmware they provide, i recommend the sensation. (you can check its sublime UI on youtube)

Nexus S has the basic Android UI, nothing special, plus the CPU is outdated
