If with Cingular/AT&T or Rogers, I suggest the new 8700 which is coming out by end of the month for both. It is very easy on the eyes, and more likely to be used as a phone later on.
If with Verizon (US recommended), Sprint, Telus or Bell Canada, I suggest the 7250. New models either use SureType (not full QWERTY) or are not coming out for another 6 months.
If with Nextel and you need DC, I suggest the 7520. It's very bulky though. The 7100i would solve some of this, but it uses SureType (not full QWERTY).
At the end, I would strongly recommend the 8700c (US) with Cingular, or 8700r (Canada) with Rogers, if you have good reception where the boss works and lives.
