I am looking for a smartphone to do local btc transactions (buying pizza and selling for cash).
What are the things to consider when shopping for such a device? What OS works best (= reliable and secure)?

My guess would be android, but I am open for others (probably no symbian applications out there? Wink )
What experiences do you have and what would you suggest to your best friend?

I would greatly appreciate if you could point me to a specific device and not be led by emotions for one manufacturer or another.
The quest is:
reliable btc transaction functionality for the least buck.

p.s.:
I will use the device solely for btc things, so fart apps and the like are not relevant to my buying decision.

thanks in advance.

It is like the wild west in the movies, like russia in the 90ies.

Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

Apple hates Bitcoin so do not use any Apple products.

I use Android and there are some very good wallets for Android.

Don't know about any others.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

Ok - Android! Smiley

And Bitcoin Wallet for android devices is AWESOME! Smiley

I am a big fan of Samsung Galaxy SIII Mini
I love this phone and you can buy it for around 100$ (~200$ new one)

This is great phone in this price and it is small and feels great in a hand.
