So I am going to be getting a new phone (work phone they will be paying for it thus it has to be sprint) Unfortunately Sprint wont be getting Windows Phone 7 until the first part of 2010. This is what I have for a selection
Samsung Epic 4G
Sayno Zio
Samsung Intercept
Samsung Transform
HTC Hero
Moto i1

I currently have an HTC TouchPro2 running WinMo 6.5.

I personally want to get the EVO 4G but that comes with an additional $10 a month (will that apply to business customers?). Most of the phones I listed onyl run Android 2.1 (I have no fear of flashing to 2.2 as long as everything works I have run Android on my WinMo phone).
I also plan on rooting the phone.

What should I get if I cant persuade them to get the EVO 4G? The Epic looks pretty powerful itself but its a little bulky (slightly smaller than the TouchPro 2) Advice would be greatly appriciated!

P.S they dont really care what I dow ith the phone as we all work in IT :)

Samsung EPIC 4G is a decent choice, its basically the Galaxy S with a keyboard.
It even has a better display than EVO 4G.

Is the display the only thing that better. I do like the HTC Sense UI though. Sorry for the seemingly obvious questions I dont know as much about phones as I do computer hardware. :/

It also has a better camera(its 5MP but it does better than the 8MP on EVO 4G).
But like you mentioned,EVO 4G has Sense UI which is better than Samsung TouchWiz, however you can Sense on Samsung 4G with cooked ROMs.

Thanks for the info. I will get the Epic 4G then. The Super AMOLED screen is awesome.
