Cell phone + mp3player + electronic dictionary

Those are three pieces of mobile electronic devices I need/want.

My oldish Samsung mp3 player got dropped and the battery shows from behind the speaker. My Blackjack (first gen!) is soon eligible for upgrade. I’ve discovered I want an electronic dictionary for school. Money is an issue.

Cell phone requirements:

1. left hand friendly touch screen

2. decent to good web browsing

3. some customization – my own ‘home screen’ picture and my own ring tones

4. GOOD battery life – my blackjack can go 2 days without a charge, definitely charge it if I spent a lot of the day texting (and I have unlimited texting plan)

5. things I don’t need – cell phone is not for work so I don’t have requirements like a good exchange server platform for emails

6. reliably able to check GMAIL

7. not too heavy. the htc fuze is a smidge on the heavy side

8. have at&t. want to keep family plan.

9. almost forgot. qwerty keyboard. I’m not sure a physical keyboard is necessary.

mp3 player requirements:

1. ogg support – in some way

2. 8 GB minimum

3. the less proprietary the better

4. no stupid software

5. battery life!

6. easy to carry in my pocket/similar

electronic dictionary:

1. more is better, need like college level

2. don’t need translator

All that being said…

Will an iphone (which I’m not sure I want) fulfill all my requirements and save me money?
