Where? I've checked up with HTC dealerships in Mumbai. None of them have it.

Cool. I hope it becomes available here soon. I am sure it will pull few people away from N95-8GB camp.

Can you believe it, there is no phone with 5MP camera + Touchscreen + OS (Symbian or WM)!? Not even among the upcoming 2008 launches!

Yes, well not from 5 MP camp but yes we have SE P1i consisting of 3.2 MP camera + touch screen + UIQ. Though UIQ is no where close to Symbian or WM6 but still for UIQ is actually great phone software to use.

may i suggest the N95-8GB or N82 ;-) better in every aspect except for the "touch" feature. i have been using i-mate PPC for a long time and i feel N series is better. of course, assuming that "touch" feature is not an absolute must.

Its not about the touch, am looking (guessing others are also) for a good wi-mo device with a strong processor.. the Touch Cruise has got the looks as well. 25k would have been nice.. wonder what the price is in Singapore

How about checking out the SE P1i? It rocks. WiFi, 3G, Touchscreen, Handwriting recognition, a good cam, a really strong battery backup, one of the highest RAM (free) in any smartphone... you name it and it has it all. And all this for just 19 thou? Its an amazing deal

Thanks for the suggestion Andro, but im better off Nokia. Just dont like thier phones. As far as the Cruise is concerned, its got probably all the best features available in any smart phone, and its also 3g.

I am in dilemma as to which mobile to go for. Budget can go upto 20k. I basically want a very quick phone, style, loud speaker and a good battery standby. I zeroed onto N81. BTW, I prefer a nokia itself. How do you rate an iPhone? It has mixed opinions. I can tell my dad to get an iPhone for me next week from kuwait. Please help N81 or iPhone or anything else.

Sagar.

Considering that N82-2GB sells for around 21K, you should look at N82-2GB instead of N81-8GB.

Somewhere I read that iPhone is a girlfriend you want to date and N82 is a girl you want to marry :-)

Negatives of N82 compared to iPhone: smaller screen, non-touch, ugly.
