Phone with GPS and Email.. Suggestion Urgent. Need to Buy Tomorrow Itself.


Hey folks,

my cousin needs to purchase a phone by tomorrow morning itself. Its urgent. He's not a fone junkie.. Need to recommend him a phone which meets his primary needs ie. Email and GPS.

He doesnt wana buy an expensiv fone for obv reasons as he has a small duaghter who likes to get techie at times

GPS, Wifi, Email, Gmail, etc are the primary needs. Cam is not a big focus point, 3.5mm jack thrown in would be recommended.

Rite now i've fixated on Nokia C6 and Nokia E5.

...please suggest as this needs to be pruchased by tomorrow morning itself. He's already using E71.

Get the Wave.
Can't say about usage but mine's fine yet and then again, Nokias can survive quite a lot of abuse

Re: Phone with GPS and Email.. Suggestion Urgent. Need to Buy Tomorrow Itself.

You'd be better off buying a Nokia 5230 for 7k or the upcoming C5-03 (both should be cheap and you get all the features you want but on S60V5) or the Spice MI-300 @ 9-10k (Android 2.1) or the LG Optimus One (Android 2.2) both droids with 600Mhz processors which you may even overclock! over the crap Wave 7233 with 600MHz processor and Bada OS.

If they want to sell that junk Bada OS, they better give specs like the old S8500 or price it like the cheaper Nokias.

Re: Phone with GPS and Email.. Suggestion Urgent. Need to Buy Tomorrow Itself.

Those nokia fones are off the window.. 2ndly using such plasticy fone (5233) wont suit him for obvious reasons.. 2ndly, he's looking into android.. overclockig is something he'll never do it. He's a corporate guy. That too at one of the most higher level. Doesnt wana go with nokia anymore.. at the sametime dont wana spend on the fone taht much for the reason i mentioned.

Get the Optimus, if he uses Exchange which comes with 2.2, that phone will be really useful.
