ketan, 24 Jan 2010I am deeply disappointed for buying this phone I bought nokia 5233 for 7.6k inr and it doesnt ... moreThat does sound a bit disingenuous of Nokia, a bit like selling the 5800 without TV-OUT. They seem to be trying very hard to get back on term with the Iphone, but stunts like this won't help.
Then they go and give away free maps, bizarre decision making.
I am deeply disappointed for buying this phone I bought nokia 5233 for 7.6k inr and it doesnt contain GPS hardware. I am so disappointed over nokia, how can they do that without any information they remove the whole GPS hardware to reduce cost. I fell like throwing the phone away. Even GSM ARENA doesnt contain any thing. So dis appointed over nokia's tactics, for providing customer very little information.
Since it doesn't support WiFi, does that mean I'll have to pay with credit to load e-mails, watch YouTube clips, etc.?

ashish, 23 Jan 2010some people hear r saying that this phone costs 8500INR 9000INR WHATTTTT!!!! in hyderabad indi... moreMake sure you get 1 year warranty with it.
And just to let you know 1100 doesn't support any sort of applications not even JAVA.
But yeah you are right that Wi-Fi cannot be installed in your phone through just software, you also need the Wi-Fi antenna. If someone is really interested in Wi-Fi probably you can get an external antenna for 5230 with a supporting software/driver for Symbian.
The reason why Wi-Fi antenna is not included/built-in into 5230 is because Wi-Fi is not a free technology, it belongs to Intel, so including it in devices means paying royalties to Intel which in turn will drive the price up for 5230.
some people hear r saying that this phone costs 8500INR 9000INR WHATTTTT!!!! in hyderabad india i chechedd many shops the minimum price i was told in some local stores is 7800 rupees and in some stores it was 8300 nokia priority is selling it for 9500 i think or may be for MRP guys my advice is PLEASE GO AND CHECK THE PRICE IN ATLEAST 5-7 STORES AND BUY IT
Iam buing this phone maybe in 2days for 7800

Hey People :)
After a long Speculative SEARCH (This being my first CELL) & getting answers to all those TechNo-GeeK Questions I have finally made up my mind to buy Nokia 5230. I have definitely settled on all the aspects the phone has to offer. (Keeping in mind the Price Point) the Sound Quality is awesome, Video Experience - Again Awesome, Camera SUCKs but dont need it anyways, GSM/CDMA, All sorts of DATA Carriers except WiFi (the only minus I guess), Mem upto 16 GB, Good Looks in a way (Price Point Remember). The only aspect I am a bit nervous about is its TouchScreen ..... I mean its RIGIDITY..... Its Toughness. So I wanna ask all you guys having this gadget to help me figure out if this Phones Touchscreen is capable of facing the CROWD of Thousands in Bombay Local Trains. For Comparisons I did had an iPod Touch n ofcourse that SHIT is Officially DOPE. So Please HELP me with this.
The Nokia 5530 XM definitely looks more Awesome but theres no way that I will spend 12000/- BUCKs for a Buggy Phone. Ever Since its been released in US UK n Europe, people thr are facing all soughts of SHIT. Seems Nokia hsnt ever released a Firmware for 5530 ever since it released which gives rise to more speculations that the BUG or should say FAULT is more Hardware Based. Whatever..... I aint going for 5530 anymore.
One Funny or rather Strange thing happened: When I went up to Nokia Priority & asked for 5230 they said the stock is already out but they have a Nokia 5233 Available. I was like whats tht havent heard or learnt about it so they showed the identical twin of 5230. Only difference he said was that Nokia 5233 doesnt has a 3G. But the funny thing is this Phone hasnt been released anywhere accross the world, It doesnt feature accross mobile websites including GSM Arena & Nokia India. Mostly Nokia wanted to release 5233 & 6700 Slide during the Mobile CONGRESS but surprisingly 5233 is already thr in India.
