Airtel just launched the Treo 750 (dunno whether it is the "w" or the "p". Probably the "w") for 25,500/-

Do you plan to load the phone with 3rd party Apps? If yes, you will be disappointed.

If you plan to use it "out of the box" without any mods, then the processor will not seem slow.

The primary USP of the Touch is form, not function. Obviously one will be compromised when the other is given more importance.

Thanks in advance.
I got it for 18.8.K with B & W in Blr. This is locked to Airtel. Seems to be Ok so far. Browsing experience is good in Edge as well as wifi. I dont see any hanging or slowness yet.( but as steer pointed out, my phone is also not loaded with 3rd party apps ). I will be loading it with Skype/ Fring and may be a good GPS software later ,nothing more.

And IMO it needs a bigger battery . Current 1100 mAH one is inadequate for heavy users.

@ Hellspawn, Steeroid, w 12 - Thanks guys. Am a heavy user and would probably end up loading a few 3rd party applications. The Touch I got quote for is unlocked, as I have a Hutch, sorry Vodafone connection.
What other options do I have?
BTW, my mini just gave up on me. The display is dead

Go for another O2. Orbit or Life or Zinc.

Thats if you want a PDA phone. If you want a phone-phone I cant help you.

@ Steeroid - I don't want a phone-phone. But, Orbit/Life/Zinc way over my budget. Hows the Atom?

2 other similarlrly specced phones HTC S710( full qwerty but no touch screen ) and Imate PDAL , which I had checked. Both around 16K with B & W.

No idea about actual user reviews for both the phones.

iMate's K-Jam and its equivalent HTC/Qtek/Dopod models would done fine - these come with the older (not Texas Instruments) processor which was faster.

HP Ipaq 512 & IMATE SP5 are within 11k and both have WiFi.
Sorry I dont have a budget of 16k. I think i'll have to buy a mobile w/o Wi Fi itself.

It's the "w" as you rightly guessed. As a treo 680 user, I wouldn't go close to a windows mobile. After all...it is windows!
