  5. The Nokia 5230 is a touchscreen phone with 3.2 inch screen. The mobile is 3G compliant and has got a 2 mega pixel camera. The 5230 comes with some advanced features like the accelerometer to enable auto rotation of images. Unfortunately the phone does not have wi-fi connectivity. This is not such a big issue in countries with 3G network but for India, it becomes a tricky issue and you need to be aware of it before buying the phone.

    • hi pal from which ever country u might be i am least concerned and by the way what do u know abt india which technology works and which technology does not works now a days maximum countries are dependent on india in the field of the techonology and a day would come when every country would be begging for the support for any techonology………

  6. Nokia 5800 is one of the first touchscreen phones to be shipped by Nokia. The touchscreen comes added with a stylus for easy use. That may not sound like much to the people who have grown up with touchscreen mobiles but is a big help for people grating from phones with old fashioned keyboard. Unfortunately the touchscreen is not as responsive as we would have liked it to be.

    In Trivandrum, it is 8650 rupees in the Nokia retailer shop. Even though the package does not have data cable and memory, they provide offers which can get you these.
