    I'm looking to replace my 2 1/2 year old blackberry pearl. I enjoy using cell phones that have the "candy bar design," yet those seem to be the most unpopular these days, so it's very difficult to find a solid one.

    Most I've found are either only available in Europe, or cost well over 300 dollars here in the US.

    In other words, what is the best candy bar phone for under $200?

    I'm definitely a fan of Nokia for the rugged factor. I thought I should probably mention I'm looking for a GSM phone.

    I would imagine you are excluding all of the big flat touch screens and want something with a keypad? Did you see the new pearl leak? I like Sony Ericssons.

    Yeah I'm really interested in the new pearl, yet it doesn't seem to be available yet.
