S2 is quite future proof for the coming 6 months (dont even think of expecting a period more than that in any tech device). Best price is about 29,999/- here - Buy Samsung Galaxy SII at Best Price in India - Also find Specifications, Photos, Features & Reviews with free accessories worth 3-4k after the rcomlb1 coupon

The Desire comes with 2.2 Froyo nowadays though it is listed as 2.1 Eclair in some sites.

For rooted users, ROMs having 2.3.4 version of Gingerbread is readily available for the Desire.

Its really confusing, they have so many codes/model numbers for the same product. I think americans like to have names instead of model numbers whilst model numbers are used widely in asian countries.

I guess you can simply sync contacts from phone to Google account. Any new addition you can chose where you want to create the contact.

Okay, again I'm not able to answer on how to move the contacts which are already on your phone through exchange. But this is what I did when I moved to android from Nokia.

Using Nokia PC Sync exported the contacts to a csv file.
Imported the contacts to my google account
In the phone, Contacts->Menu->Add account, I added the google id and it synced the contacts from mail to the phone contacts. I also labelled the contacts at the time of import into google account. Hence I can selectively display those contacts.

In your case if you still have the E71, you can try the same approach.
Else you can do a csv export from outlook contacts and then follow the subsequent steps.
