while Every maker is launching more and more sophisticated handsets. Neonode silently launched the N2. Its probably the smallest windows mobile device with a neno interface (allegdly copied by apple)

no extra features but still all the necessary jazz is included.

I am looking to get a Sony flap phone for under 10K. What among the following would be my best bet, in terms of overall appearance and style, talk time and battery life:
w710i, z530i, z550i, z610i and z710i
(You're welcome to mention other flap models, I may have forgotten)

Also, I intend trading-in my old Nokia for the new Sony.
Any suggestions as to where I might get the best deal? (I reside in Andheri West)

others maybe good but HTC are the best in pocketpc market in India. Overall I would say the Loox T830 if we talk globally.

I need to gift my girlfriend a new phone and she will only use a PINK coloured one. Currently she has a Moto Razr (old one) in a hot pink colour.

Heard there is a Sony Ericsson flip phone in pink, any idea which one it is and how much it costs? Any other phones in pink?

Default Charging Mobile batteries

1 question to the other bhpians. How often do you charge your mobile battery ?

I use the mobile whole day and plug in the charger when i go to sleep at night and and and in the morning unplug the charger. I do this daily even if battery meter on phone shows full. Is this right thing or should i let my phone battery drain and then charge it.

Buddy that is the worst thing you can do to spoil your battery. Always try to use the phone till the battery is almost discharged. And, never never put it on charge and go to sleep as overcharging is sure-shot way of shortening the life of your battery.

I typically charge my phone for 1 hour or slightly more each morning when it is usually in a 25% remaining stage and it works out for me the whole day

well my phone is on charge most of the time when im at home. on the contrary for lithium ion batteries like our phones use ive heard that it shouldnt be discharged or charged fully. its perfectly fine to take it out halfway.

I have had the experience twice when my cell phone was damaged and lost all data in it due to over-night charging (advised by engineers both times)

It's a bad practice to charge your cell over-night as this will cause excess current in the cell even though most of the phones cut-off the charging when the battery gets full.

Also, its better to let the battery drain before you charge it as this ensures a longer life.

debatable, ideally once in a while discharge to max (i do once in 3 or 4 weeks), otherwise top up is fine, overnight charging will not harm battery life in most phone since these batteries (yes they have circuits inside) as well as phone circuits are devised in such a way as to stop charging once a prescribed level is attained. yeah if you have a very unreliable/fluctuating power supply avoid overnight or extended time plugged in.

batteries these days are not affected by our charge cycles. Or so I have heard.

Usually I recharge only when the battery low sign shows up. my phone lasts me 4 days easily.
