It's Pre used of course. The new if available would be +20 grands.
I still have the urge to go for a new Wave though. The omnia is an year and a half old phone and has Symbian which is also not backed up by Samsung support. Just the price for such piece of hardware makes a person go weak in the knees.

Guys I need a Dual sim phone for my dad.

Requirements:
1. Reliability : Will be using the phone for atleast 2 years+
2. Only basic functions are required. An FM is appreciable.
3. Should be easy to use.

Any suggestions?

being a hardcore Nokia person, I would suggest the Noka C1 it covers all your requirements and should be available for abt Rs1500/- or so..

In C100 one can't use both sim simultaneously. We need to reboot the phone to switch between sims. That is . Its better to have two phones instead of that. i heard C200 is on its way. Any idea when it will launch?

Me too searching similar kind of phone for my mom. My mom being a nokia fan too does not want any other brand. I was just googling this model no. and saw that this handset does not have camera? The following is my mom's requirement:

1. Camera
2. FM radio
3. all other basic features

Maximum budget is not more than 2000 Rs.

Can you guys please suggest me a model of Nokia with all the above features?

Thanks for your help

Bought a new E5 recently. Was wanting to buy the Samsung Galaxy 3, which had the Android 2.1, however dropped the idea of buying a touch screen as it would have been a bit tacky to use it for business purposes. The E5 comes across very handy with the QWERTY eyboard, 5 MP cam, 3G, WiFi and loads of features for 12k. Very satisfied with the performance so far.

The Nokia C3 seems to be a great buy at the price point( below 6K).

QWERTY,WiFi,2.4",2GB,SNS in a semi metal body seems to be quite a steal.Lack of 3G and poor camera seems to be minor irritants.

I'm really looking forward to picking up this phone. I'm not sure if the price-tag has been revealed yet. I'm told that it would be around the same price as the N8.

Have you considered Samsung Wave 525? - http://www.flipkart.com/samsung-wave...bcrrhkpafdzjx6

Nokia E7 could be priced around the same as that of N8.
Most features are same except that the E7 has a 4" screen and a 8MP camera.

This one is great for using the Internet and writing mails but there seems to be a rumor that Nokia is not going to provide the additional accessories that were given out with the N8 i.e HDMI converter and USB on the go cable hence you will need to buy them.
And yes this phone won't have an option for adding external memory via a card.

This one is targeted for corporate guys and hence would be bundled with some cool office softwares.
All-in-all a good package.

I'm certainly going to wait keenly for a E.7. Need a hassle free Nokia and personally for me a qwerty key pad is a must. I'm just not comfortable on touch screen alone.

I do hope it can be at a slightly lower price point though.

I was waiting for the C3 for a very long time as well. Really wanted an affordable qwerty phone from a reputed brand.

The keys on the C3 are very narrow. Make typing very difficult. Plus, its got hindi alphabets on the keys which just make the whole keypad look too crowded.

Any pointers for an affordable qwerty?

Have you considered the new Moto Starling?

Good price and dual SIM. Downers are low battery capacity (esp. for dual SIM) and IIRC EDGE is of lower class.

No idea how it performs in real. But at least its a Moto.
