    Nokia C-6 is nothing but a paer weight having combination of electronic devices. I will suggest that beside purchasing this paper weight throw your money on the road. It will hurt you once but this hand set every time and u will be sharing your precious time with service center.

    Hi Guys, After checking many models of different companies i purchase NOKIA C3.
    Now i am happy that my decision was right in all angles.
    My new 20 days old C3 fell from 3rd floor and still working in a good condition. Of course the display had problem but i got the same repair in the Nokia service center for free.
    It was nice to see my C3 in a back new phone. :) )))

    I doubt the prices you quoted are correct, if E5 is Rs.10634, then why is Nokia still selling phones with similar specs like E71 for Rs.13000 and E72 for Rs.17000. My guess is as long as Nokia sells E71 and E72, E5 will not be seen in the market.

    c3-price 5317/-INR
    2MP camera with Wi-Fi enabled.
    drawback:- No 3G.

    E5- price 10634/-INR.
    5MP camera which is a successor of E63 & E72.
    It has all business features of E63 & E72 plus entertainment series which is missing in E series normally.
    Drawback :- No Wi-Fi.

    C6 Price is 13,000/-INR
    Personally i’m inspired with the specifications of c6.
    There is no diff in the specifications of N97mini and this except internal memory.
    N97mini price is around 20,000/-INR.
    This has all the features 3G,Wi-Fi,Touch Screen,QWERTY horizantal slide keyboard,A-Gps and many. For this price it has almost all the features upto my knowledge.

    Waiting eagerly for the release of c6 handset in INDIA.
