Smile HU with only USB , AUX- IN, and Bluetooth

Hi ICE Gurus,
I have 3 Queries,
Firstly , I was wondering is there any *branded* HU with only USB , AUX-IN and Bluetooth Capability and no CD/DVD player.

Secondly, What will be the best Head Unit with USB , AUX-IN and a must within a range of 6000~10000 and would appreciate if it also has bluetooth capability, really tight budget and lowest price will be better

Thirdly, Does bluetooth in HU means that I can talk on the phone without using my hands ?

Thanks In Advance !

Kenwood has one : KDC - BT7539U
Not sure about the price though

Having a bluetooth means you have control of your phone just like bluetooth headsets
Voice comes from the speakers while there is an additional mic which can be put according to the position best suited for voice clarity in your car

Whenever you connect a phone , and some music is playing , any call comes in , the music goes mute and the telephone mode comes up ( Happens in Pioneer)

There's an interesting HU coming up (released in some countries only so far) called the Parrot RK8200. Even I am waiting for it with bated breath. The tragedy so far is that their website only talks about releasing it in three countries - USA (possible FM problems with Indian stations), France (Menus in French) and UK (super expensive).

KDC - BT7539U had CD player - wonder why rajulsingh wants one without CD player. Only place recently heard of such a HU is the stock HU on the ANHC, but not sure which brand or OEM make it is. Honda might be having some special arrangement also.

KDC - BT7539U costs in 14.5-15K range.

A Rs. 700 USB stick holds 200 hours worth music. And is solid state - no wear and tear, no fading, no scratches, and the original songs are still there on the computer's hard disk. If I know such a HU existed, I would have got one, instead of what I have now. (forget the diffference b/w MP3 and equivalent non-compressed file. I simply do not know the difference between a Cd and old style audio tape. And I believe there would be hudnreds of people like me out there.

somewhere in this forum there was thread that the excess heat in the HU system made the USB corrupt and unusable. i couldn't find the thread now. so no links...

Alpine makes some HUs without CD player but plays iPod and has Aux-in. No built in bluetooth but add on kit available.
Unfortunately, they're nowhere near your budget if you're buying here. If you can get it from US, it will work out very cheap.

Kenwood BT7539 has a cd player but an excellent HU. Crosses 15k though.

well the kenwood is seriously crossing my budget

So I would like to ask which one is the cheapest HU with USB and AUX-in and an method to add bluetooth in future
The presence of a Cd Player does not annoy me

Please tell me the best place from where to buy this stuff at a good price and of good quality (read: Genuine) in Delhi,preferably Karol Bagh

Also which is the best USB enabled stereo system within 10K( it includes speakers wiring, and HU)
Please be exact with models etc, and also the rear speakers should fit in the sockets provided ( maybe 6.5 inches and round sockets) and the car is Chevy Aveo.

Just read in this months autocar that Alpine has launched the IDX systems in India. This should suit you. The base model is around 11k and the top end about 26k. Check it out. I think the base model is IDX 100.

Well if you can stretch your budget by 2K there is Pioneer 7050 with inbuilt Bluetooth, AUX-IN, USB etc etc.
