No, it's not a part of the package with the P320, but I do think that you get a car kit with a P527 <not sure>

My old E6 stopped responding via the touch screen, 14 months.
Picked up the LG GT 505 for Rs 14850 from Sanjeetha in RT Nagar. I wanted a touch screen with GPS. The Nokia 5800 was a tired and tested model but went for the LG anyway.

Guys,

Does anyone face a E63 hanging problem? Mine hangs almost every second day. This is downright irritating - any workarounds?

The nokia india website does not show a newer firmware! Any ideas?

Yes, E63 is having a buggy firmware. My friend is having one. You cannot configure most of the mail services in it using GPRS, Calls wont go through sometime, and to add to that it HANGS !!!

At a local store, I was offered this phone for Rs. 22500/- no freebies. On Ebay, the cheapest HTC Touch2 is bidding at Rs 20K or so.

I'm looking for a good WinMo phone and at that price point I actually thought the Xperia X1, Samsung Omnia i900 and HTC Touch Diamond to be more VFM. Correct me if i'm wrong, the only new thing with the HTC touch is WinMo 6.5 which according to reviews is not that much of an improvement over WinMo 6.1

the best samsung phone currently is the i8910 or known as the Omnia HD.

the best touchscreen (capacitative) and the best graphics (HD).

It is way brighter and faster than the iphone and can beat it hands down in the camera dept @ 8mp.

Wonder why people are not talking about this phone more. It beats the iphone any day.

but i have heard that WinMo 6.5 is really good as compared to 6.1 .Will go out soon to check out HTC touch 2.
Compared to Xperia X1 i think HTC touch2 makes more sense

1) Its too big
2) The user interface is very RAW, iphone is lightyears ahead.
3) The audio quality is no where near iphone.
i8910 is excellent in parts but as an overall phone it still has a lot to catch up to.

heh, heh, even I was confused as I had paid 31K for TD2 two months back. He is referring to Touch 2, not Touch Diamond 2.

If it had been the HTC Touch Diamond 2 then I would have been posting "just bought it for 20K"

And now the Omnia 2 has also released.

Sigh, without a very burning need to upgrade phones at the moment (need it probably 2 months down the line) the choices look, overwhelming.

Default Samsung Star anyone?

Anyone bought the Samsung Star GT-S5233A and regretting it? Might be decent enough for its price, but once you star comparing even a basic Sony Ericsson model with this, you start to see some glaring overlooks on the design part. I had written a review of this phone on my naveenroy.com blog and some of the worst problems was sudden drop of network, lousy earphones and not being able to use two applications at once. At first, even Google Maps would not work properly. As in, it was not showing the current location. Thankfully, this has been resolved. But I hate the earphones and planning to get that adapter so that I can use other manufacturers earphones.
