First fine phone

What kind of phone should we get our son for his 17th birthday? We'd like to get him something reasonably cool, while keeping it reasonably cheap.
He doesn't have a phone. (We have two pay-as-you-go cheapo phones, which he and my wife occasionally use.) I have an iPhone 3GS on AT&T. He probably won't make a lot of calls, but would do texting and some web surfing. A good camera would be a plus. Either a 2-year plan or pay-as-you-go is OK, but I really don't want to pay $80/month. I tried looking around the Consumer Reports, AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon websites, but quickly got flummoxed. Thanks!
