Top 10 cheap 3G phones in India
As India gets ready for the much awaited and umpteen times postponed 3G auction and as operators are getting their services ready, it is time we consider our 3G phone options. While there are many options available with iPhone being the most obvious one we should look at other options too. Because iPhone doesn’t often fit the bill – literally.
iPhone has launched its 3G version last year and 3G S this year. Both versions are launched before the 3G spectrum is available and both were expensive. There are other phones which fit the bill.
Here we go. Top 10 cheap 3G phones and the prices in Indian rupees :
- LG KP199 Dynamite — 3500
- Nokia 2730 Classic — 4500
- Sony Ericsson Naite- – 6400
- Samsung SGH – L700– 6400
- Sony Ericsson Cybershot C510 – 9200
- Nokia E63 – 9400
- Sony Ericsson T715 — 9700
- Samsung M650 — Lindy – 9900
- Nokia 5330 XpressMusic – 10000
- Samsung Omnia Pro B7320 — 10000
- Nokia 5320 – 10500
The prices might vary depending the time and place. Nokia holds more than 50% market share in India. In the list above Nokia has appeared 4 times. A good reason why Nokia has that market share. Nokia has its phones in all price bands.
Few expensive options :
- Apple iPhone 3G S — 40500-45000
- Blackberry Bold 9000 — 35900
- Apple iPhone 3G — 35000
- Samsung i900 Omnia — 33000
- Nokia N85 — 27299
- Palm Treo 750 — 22990
- Nokia N96 — 22,500
- Nokia E71 — 18,500
- Motorola Q9h — 12000

- Samsung Corby Pro — 13900
I know cheap is not a politically correct word any more. But in a world of Twitter, cost-effective is just too many characters. The word cheap is the cheapest available option to say cheap.
As for me I use a iPhone 3G S and am quite happy with it. It is beautiful, functional and expensive. And yes people give me the stare. But what I am really looking forward to is a Dual SIM 3G Phone – 1 holding a 3G SIM and other a GSM SIM. Micromax, are you there?
