@ Sahil
Had gone asking about the C6 at a nearby store yesterday. He said that out of C3, C6 and E5, two are going to hit the stores in between 2 to 3 days. Will go again tomorrow or the day after and will recheck.

OT:
Congrats D-BHPian!

My N91 is on it's last legs and I'm looking for a replacement in the Rs. 3-4K region.
I know that won't get me much, so i started looking at the indian manufacturers. does anyone here have any experience with the Karbon K10 or any other phone from an indian manufacturer?
any other suggestions in that price range will be appreciated.

All - after researching a lot, I was still confused which nexus one variant will work for 3g in India. The conclusion was both at&t and tmobile variants (both can be ordered from google store) support 2100Mhz and so will work in India. So i ordered the tmobile variant (900/aws/2100) from google store instead of at&t (850/1900/2100)
Incase someone here is using the google nexus one in india and has tried 3g (bsnl/mtnl) an update would be nice.

Well, I got my 5130 after service. Nokia honoured the warranty after all. So, I will keep the android phone pending for few months now.


Now, to restore the addressbook and other backups, and also to fix the GPRS issue.

Just called up the Nokia Concept Stores, Hyderabad. They say the C3 will take another one month. Dissapointed, I forgot to ask about C6 and E5.

I got a Fly Mobile Dual SIM DS 100 for Rs. 1600 - review for those who are looking for cheap phones

- Voice quality not as good as one of cheap Nokia models.
- The manual is woefully inadequate - there is a shortcuts options in the menu - I still haven't figured what the hell it does & how it works.
- Battery life is decent - the shop said that the battery is actually identical to a particular Nokia battery which can be substituted.
- The screen visibility is woeful in sunlight, but excellent indoors.

The user interface is decent without being outstanding. It takes 2-3 keystrokes to do practically anything.
Simple example -> Most cellphones have modes you chose - Indoor, Outdoor, Meeting etc where tones/volumes are different. The way to chose a mode & way to customize a mode shouldn't be mixed up - in this phone it is mixed up. So when I chose a mode, I have to again chose whether I want to activate the mode or customize the mode.

Other than that because it's a dual SIM phone, you have to chose whether you want the task done through SIM1 or SIM2 - for eg. for sending an SMS. This needs to be done even if I am currently using the phone in a Single SIM mode.

I mainly bought the phone because I needed a Dual SIM & this was the cheapest Dual SIM available. If I didn't want a Dual SIM, I should have been better off with Rs. 1300 Nokia basic phone - Nokia is the best at making cheap phones with great usability.
