Buy it that's cheap really, Price is lower because that's a branded handset, apart from that same as Tytn II you can compare it here - Tilt 8925 & Tytn II

Cell phones are cheaper in India. And the latest is available in India. I would recommend that shopping for a mobile handset is better done in India !

I can attest to having used my Indian issued GSM phone all over continental Europe with an Indian Spice Telecom (Calcutta-issued) SIM card with international roaming.

Thanks a lot Ram.

Can you please also suggest on whether opting for plans that come bundled with phones come out to be cheaper?
Is there such a system in NZ? (Asking cuz we dont have it here)

@ mail4ajo

I have heard very good things (howardforums). Software seems to be stable. Looks great though Rose gold is not available in india. Build quality is very high.

Question Handset required in 20 - 25K range -- Please help

Hey All,

Now that my Swift is here, its time to get a great mobile phone. My Classic Ngage has seen better days and is ready to be put to rest.

My budget is 20 - 25K.

I am considering P1i, W960i, E61i, N82.

The N82 is there because i am not sure whether i want a business or a multimedia phone. I am doing my mba and will be joining a it company as a business analyst soon so i want my mobile to be able to read office docs.

I also want MP3, FM(preferably), Bluetooth, wifi and all the good stuff. Camera will be a handy add on as well. I am fearful of rotating and sliding phones coz i think they will break soon.

I am willing to consider other international brands of repute such as HTC in this price range as well that are available in mumbai.

Please advice. I trust the informed members on this forum.

Thanks.

Hey Guys,

Can i pitch in for HTC touch?Are there any generic problems with the model or is it better to go for HTC 3400?

Also,is N 81 good.I am not looking at the 8 GB HDD one.Am considering a normal N81 WITH 2GB card.

Swiftcrazy,

Unplugging your life isnt a bad idea. Why waste your eyes/fingers when you'll already abuse them working long hour anyways.

    This will not happen with the N82 design. But I must admit the feel of the N82's five way pad is decidedly less tactile than that of the N73's joystick.
  2. At first use, the small rectangular keys on the N82 come across as more inconvenient than the illuminated buttons on the N73. But I got used to them quite quickly and found them quite useable.
  3. The "Edit Key" (pencil) is missing on the N82. This is usually found in S60 devices. It controls some editing functions (for example: copy, cut, paste)...

    Some experimentation revealed that you can use the # key for this purpose.
Ram
I do miss the flashing blue LED on the Nokia N73.
One glance in a pitch dark room and you would instantly know where you had left your phone and also that it was charged and standing by to receive calls.
