Actually it is worth to notice that Osmand is free and open-source.
Osmand+ is the ' donation' version, and night ly build is also available for free from google-code.
Digging a little, you'll also find ski map and contour lines for Osmand :)

I use OsmAnd, and I'm very satisfied with it.
It has vector rendering, it has POI-search, it can do offline routing, as well
as online (using CloudMade or YOURS). It can also be used for simple mapping
things (add POIs, save GPX track), but I haven't used them (I use OSMTracker
Also, it seems to use the PBF format, and I currently have all Italy loaded on
my Samsung Galaxy Next. It also has voices available for quite some languages.
If you look in the Android Market, you see "OsmAnd" and "OsmAnd+" -- the first
is free, but won't get updates, the second is quite cheap (it's 3€ here, don't
know what your currency is, and gets updates. But they are also on the F-Droid
P.S.: no, I'm not affiliated in any way with OsmAnd, I'm just a happy user :)
