It’s time to compare and analyze three great phones available in the market today. Let’s get it started with the Apple iPhone.
Apple iPhone – This was the most awaited phone in the Indian market. It is now here, but not before it became famous throughout the rest of the world. Renowned for its chic design and easy-to-use functions the iPhone has tremendous features such as its wide and clear screen, iPod, internet capability with classic web browser, GPS mapping, and last but not lease, a phone.
iPhone is being offered in the USA for the price of $199, so the awaiting buyers in India expected the same price. Unfortunately, that is not what happened. To grab hold of this hot item, you will have to shell out Rs.31,000 for the 8GB and Rs. 36,100 for the 16GB. If you’re wanting to pick up more than one, you may consider flying overseas to make your purchase. Even with airfare included, you may just save a few rupees!
So, dangling a hefty price tag of Rs.31, 000 or thereabouts, the iPhone will be a ‘missed call’ for most!
HTC Diamond Touch – This is the most talked about phone among the corporate and business people of India. Loaded with tons of great features, it is one of the slimmest phones in the touch category. It boasts of the most famous business platform out there Windows Mobile. This slim trim companion comes with Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, it weighs a mere 110 g (with the battery), it is GPS enabled, has a 2.8-inch touch screen, 4GB internal usage, and will even tell you the weather reports with HTC Weather. No, an umbrella is not included. So if you are not mobile savvy but care about the Windows Mobile Platform and the business related apps then go for HTC Diamond Touch. This one truly is a diamond in the rough!
NOKIA N96 – Finally its time to talk about one of the most famous brands on the planet, Nokia. Nokia N96 is great improvement on the already excellent N95. People are no longer calling it a mobile but rather, a new multimedia computer as it has virtually everything a computer should have.
Easily accessing internet videos is a highlight of this sophisticated phone. In select markets, the integrated DVB-H receiver offers live broadcast TV with an automatically updating program guide. It also boasts of a 5 megapixel camera, GPS, Bluetooth wireless technology, WLAN, and a DVB-H Receiver.
