The 60D can do wireless flash, just like the T3i (600D) and the 7D.

As for which flash to get, save your pennies and go for the 430 EX II. First, it speaks "Canon" natively, so all the features of the flash will be available and controllable from the camera menus. Second, it has a rotating head (the ones you listed might, too, I didn't check) which will be invaluable for bouncing the flash off of the ceiling or off of a wall. Third, the 430 EX II can take full advantage of ETTL (Evaluative Through The Lens) metering as well as manual. Some of the cheaper knock-off flashes may not give you the ability to do ETTL.

Sure, Canon has less expensive flashes (320 and 270), but you lose the flexibility that the 430 gives you.

Just my $0.02.
