Go for the motorola e398. the mp3 player capabilities are great and n-gage maybe good as a gaming machine but is not as good a phone.

Motorola e398 sounds amazing and has a great display too.

pros of e398

good display
stereo speakers
ability to connect external speakers
leds (I love them)
mp3 player

cons

a bit slow
no smart phone
uses transflash that is harder to obtain

pros of ngage

older ngage had the best mp3 player available
symbian series 60 smart phone(old version)
small
nokia name may help get better resale
hot swap for memory card

cons

no mp3 player built in
display only 4k
will be discontinued soon
odd shape
less battery life

hence
1 .motorola e398
2. old n-gage(if music is a priority)
3. new n-gage.

youll have to look around cos its avaialble only through the gray market. if you are buying a new one make sure its new cos its been out of production for some time now

Motorola has bluetooth.

I wud like to go with motorols due to its superb display, stereo speakers, camera with flash and leds .

Ngage doesnt last more than a day on full charge and is a bit big.

have a look at the e398 at a store. Just becasue the old n-gage may be hard to get and being a grey market piece it is risky.

ngage qd sucks.

old ngage .I have used personally. excellent phone. lacks a camera and big in size. battery life is short.

motorola e398

excellent all the way. buy it.
you may find it a bit slow and the transflash cards they use are not easy to find and buy.

I have not been in India for some months. Though the last price I heard was 10,000. Maybe even less now.
