It was definitely one of the classiest phone nokia ever made.

Finally found a deal on ebay for 44 comes out near to Rs.3000 for a refurbished Nokia 6100 with a 12 months warranty. Is it worth ?

It came in the market around 2004-2005, and then got discontinued.
My wife's first mobile phone. We bought in 2003 in NJ, an unlocked version. Wife used it for many years and then her dad used it for few more years. Great phone for that time. Buying it now is like buying a used Maruti 800 ss80 now.

Also, what offline maps can I use for navigation on the Android? Are these accurate for searching street addresses?
I am seeing the SP online for 25,490 along with free 16GB card and case.

If your looking at Nokia 720 budget, then the SP is the closest. If your ready to stretch the budget, then the ZL is the best out there.

You can also see the Galaxy S3 which has a 15% cashback and based on the ads, it will cost you Rs.27,191.

The 800 ss80 is a classic vintage now.
The nokia 6100 on the other hand wasn't so popular as the 800 but can be associated to a Daewoo Cielo. Those who had it, knew its worth

So always make sure you have your C drive with sufficient memory.
Thanks boss.

I have 50 GB partition in my C drive out of which Windows 7 has taken 38 GB and Dell driver software another 10 GB. No idea what benefit I am getting with a 64 bit OS, apart from Windows consuming double the space than it usually take. And Dell, well I think they have a common set of drivers irrespective of the Laptop make or parts make and dump the whole in C drive.

I miss my Windows 98 and Partition Magic 8.0 evaluation version of my college days.

Check your PC, Win7 takes less than 20GB in any case

Thank you very much, phamilyman.

I seem to have confused the cheaper SL for the SP that you have mentioned. The SL looks extremely blah, will check out the SP when I go to the gallery for the ZL.

I wILL either stick to the 17 - 20K budget (Lumia 720 @ 18K), or then go the whole hog for the ZL (34K). I would have frozen on the 720 if it was packed with 1GB ram, and priced under 20K.

I do not have an ICICI / Standard Chartered card, the cash back is available only with one of these. In the open market, the price for the S3 is between 29 - 30K which is too close to the ZL, and then there is not black for the Indian market

I too did not like the plastic treatment on the Z, too much area for finger prints to show up. I've zeroed in on the Sony Xperia ZL (http://www.sony.co.in/product/xperia+zl) which is the Z's twin without the plastic case, with a super sexy LED, and rubber-plastic finish rear side. On the brighter side, it is a full 3K cheaper than the Z!

Oh well, I placed an order for 5 screen guards for the entire family. The price was great. Now lets hope it reaches me
Its been a month and I havent received my guards yet. Looks like 250 bucks wasted. Either way the deal looked too good to be true.

Karbonn Titanium S5 looks and feels awesome! Really good display with a very very good price tag i.e 11.5k. I bet the back is the same plastic cover as the s3 or note 2..
