Default Need Help Buying Nokia E61i

Hey Guys I need some reviews on the nokia E61i.
I'm planning to get this mobile (for my GF).

The shops here are asking 16,400 with B&W. Is this too much?
Have already checked out a lot of other mobiles with Qwerty keypad. (Qwerty is a must). Non which I (she) liked and non within our budget.

So if any owners of the E61i can share their views I would be very grateful.




Puia.

E61 is an old model & probably discontinued. Some dealer must be having old stock, which he's trying to pass off to you.
Blackberrys also offer good solutions in qwerty keyboard range, do check them out.
Just a small upgrade in budget would get you the fabulous E71.

Nokia will be launching E63 in a short while, wait for that. Also, E71 costs ~19k.
HTC has also launched a phone with qwerty keyboard in ~16k range.

If it's not out of production yet, it will be soon. It's a pretty old model, you'll have better luck with an E71. It creams the E61i in every aspect, and damn it's fast.

Where would be the best and cheapest place to get the E61i in Mumbai.
I have a friend staying there so I can tell him to pick it up for me.

How much is the current price in Mumbai for the E61i???

I bought my E61i for 15k in Chennai and I advice you to go for E71 unless you are the kind of person(stupid like me!) who will buy a TCIC instead of a DICOR.

I have an E61i that I was planning on selling. Let me know if you are interested. I have used it for 6months now & would be expecting 10k.
Cheers,

You'll get a brand new one for around 11-12k at the most.
