Guys,
This Xperia Ray is discontinued. Is there any other smart phone equivalent to this, which is small (3.0 to 3.5 inches) with excellent camera and with 15k price tag?

Sony Xperia U. Smallish sleek and excellent camera. Can get it close to 12k using gradus 10% off sale. Tonight at 12am even indiatimes is having a mobile sale.

The phone in your link looks really interesting. Thanks again for that.
I just saw the link and it says you can avail a further 20% off on this using some coupon which is given there.

So for around 4.7k this looks fantastic value for money!

I recently got my Xperia Mini Pro for 10.5k. Very happy with it, I think it's fantastic value for money and fits your requirements to the T.

The search of the Nexus 4 is driving me crazy. After convincing myself that 'Its ok to pay a little more' I found this deal on Junglee.com
http://www.junglee.com/Google-LG-Nex.../dp/B00A4YIZDG

A look at Amazon also confirms that the least people are selling Nexus 4 is at $100 premium. I have a friend coming down in 2weeks from US, hence can get from Amazon.

Is it better to get it via Amazon or Junglee? I am tried of waiting for the stocks to be back at Google Play and there is no news of India launch in the near future.

You don't have to pay more if you get it directly from Google. Here's the link:

http://www.google.com/nexus/4/

Log on to the link through some US server if you can use some RSA secure ID. It won't allow you to make payment from an Indian IP.

Give the address of your friend in US and he will come back to India with it. Alternatively, you can ask your friend to buy it and pay him when he comes with the phone here.

EDIT: Just read the last line of your quote. Is the stock over so soon?

Yeah buddy, the stocks were over in half hour the first time on Google playstore. And the second time they released more stocks in UK, the site almost went down! Can you imagine Google site going down due to traffic!

The current situation is very sad, for arguably the best value for money smartphone.

Thanks for your help guys. Luckily, I found Xperia Ray back in stock on Flipkart on Sunday. Ordered immediately and they delivered it yesterday. It is really a nice phone with 8MP camera, sleek and small enough to hold in one hand comfortably.

Good choice. Keep us updated with your own review. And why you chose Ray over the U.
