3G HANDSET Below Rs 5,000
Now that the government has raked in moolah from the 3G spectrum auctions, it’s your turn to savour the benefits of higher speed and better voice quality. You won’t have to scrimp to afford it as 3G-enabled handsets are available for less than Rs 5,000. Consider the Nokia 2730 Classic. Armed with Ovi Mail, Nokia Messaging and an Opera mini browser, it has everything you need to optimise the 3G experience. The 2-inch QVGA display is smaller than the high-end 3G phones, but it is a reasonable compromise at the given price. The features have been beefed up by a 2 MP camera, 4x digital video zoom and a memory of 30 MB that can be expanded to 2 GB.
