Don't Drink and Drive! My best advice.

Most phones these days all have cameras anyway, it is more difficult to find one without ot. Waht about the Motorola ROKR.

I would suggest a Nokia over any other phone. Most cell phones with exandable memory are generally camera phones. You can try RIM phones too.

Motorola ROKR has some problems. Acutally I wouldn't recommend a Motorola at all.

I dont know what 10000/- INR is in � or $, so im not sure if the phones
are within your price range.

Did you take a look at the Sony Ericsson walkman phones?

http://www.sonyericsson.com/spg.jsp?cc=global&lc=en&ver=4001&template=pg2&zone=pg&mcid=32

The one im familiar with has FM radio, mp3, 512MB memory, 2M cam.

You are a blind believer of Nokia (like many peoples) or you have any bad experience with Other brands such as Motorola.

Not a blind beleiver but I have tried Nokia, Samsung, Motorola and Soni ericcson phones. The most user friendly is Nokia and it has lesser keys than other phones. I would recommend the Nokia 6230i or the 6230 too.

Motorola phones are attractive to look at but they are slow, the software hangs from time to time, call drops etc...

Here's how bad the Motorola software really is:
I got a call on my cell phone once and the no. which showed up was that of my friend who was sitting right in front of me and he wasnt even calling me. I found out later that it was someone who called me and the no. which showed up was that of my friend.

Another incident:
For no apparent reason my room mates Motorola phone's light used to come on for some 20 seconds and go off.

I smell Microsoft in the software....

Check the reviews about the ROKR before you buy it. That phone has some problems witht the software too.

Hmmm... Maybe it's just the particular models I had -- or the network -- but my Nokia from AT&T was so bad that I pretty much stopped using it. ("What?" "It's cutting out again." "What?" "I'll call you on a real phone later." "What?") I got a Motorola from Qwest, and all is well.

Before the Nokia, I had an Ericson that worked well (other than getting really hot after about 10 minutes of use). But that was a long time ago.

If I had to switch now, I think I would get a Motorola from Cingular.

All good but doesn't look like a mobile of 11000/- INR.

I guess, a Nokia model with similar look is available in around 4000/- INR but ofcourse without features I want.

:roll:

Anything worth doing well is worth doing poorly first. Just look at this tiny ad:
