mani, 16 Jan 2010plz anyone guide me,where i will get document viewer,quick office,isilo for nokia 5230,.iam no... moreSearch on the internet for it. Here's a link : http://www.dl4all.com/search/Q...30+free.html
Once you've got the doc reader up and running do come here to comment how's the reading experience on its 3.2" widescreen display. Does it strain the eye after prolonged reading. Alright.
I just bought it and it's amazing. It sure has the ability to kick out most of the touchscreen phones available these days.
Can you set a full screen wallpaper on the home screen or is it cropped like the older models of Nokia?
plz anyone guide me,where i will get document viewer,quick office,isilo for nokia 5230,.iam not able to read my books in 5230,any one plz.
the nokia 5230 xpressmusic phone music was not so goood if u will compare with 5800 and phone is too delicate to use
GSMArena mentioned in specification that Nokia 5230 has Doc. viewer, but in review they mentioned that there is no doc. viewer.
Which one is right???????????????
syd, 16 Jan 2010is Corby pro better or 5230?? guys help coz m gona bye i 2-3 days....no don t buy cordy it is really not good at all but nokia 5230 is excellent phone buy that k .. take care ...
Parasuram, 16 Jan 2010Really great comment, u said xactly the facts ....niceThank You Parasuram. The time I take out to reply to queries feels worth while after reading statements like yours. I appreciate it.
2 issues (1 already discussed) till now in phone :-
1) Unable to stop alarm , I stop it it again get snooze :(. Ultimately I have to deactivate it from Alarm properties. Any1 has solution for this problem
2) Unable to send SMS. SMS kept stuck in Outbox and resending also do not work.
DO I need to do some setting ?
there is comparison b/w 5800 and 5230 in this forum...
If budget is constraint then I say at 8000 , 5230 is AWESOME PHONE.
If your have extra 5/6 K , go get it 5800 and have fun with 2 speaker and WiFi.
All my friends who have corby/5800 shocked to 5230 feature/quality at such low price :)
Samsung and nokia us, 16 Jan 2010But java phones are much faster than symbiun phones. Symbiuns are slow even in basic features.... moreS60 phones are better in terms of 3rd party apps compatibility and availability. And to those who gripe about the 2mp camera, let me tell you this, even the 5800's 3.5mp with carl zeiss lens will still suck. No camera phone will satisfy anybody. Buy a dedicated digicam.
parag, 16 Jan 2010hi farhan and nikhil
thnx yaar...you really cleared some of my doubts. but though u r saying ... morePositives that 5230 had over 5800 XM were addressed by the recent firmware update released by Nokia for 5800 XM. Read this for more : http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_...ews-1378.php
If you have 5000 Rs to spare you can safely buy 5800 XM. Actually the price difference is not 5000/-. You get the Seinheisser headsets (allegedly worth more than 2000/-)and 8 GB memory card, Data cable [confirm with your retailer]. So the price difference comes out to be less than 2000/-. And this is justified as you get a better camera with flash, a front facing videocall camera, built-in Wi-Fi, built-in stereo speakers that you won't get in 5230.
But if you're on a budget 5230 is the best bet. You can decide for yourself if you really need the features that 5230 lacks mentioned above and wouldn't mind paying more for it.
If you're still not sure between the two and want me to suggest one than I'd say go for 5230 because my mom says "money is better in your pocket than spent on your phone" and for features you'd rarely use.
You also asked about Corby plus and Pro. The QWERTY on them are surely an advantage as it makes typing on the phone really easier. Usually when we type on dedicated keyboard the fact that buttons are physically separated and the tactile feedback gives a good experience. This is to be taken into consideration only if you type long things on your phone. But touch screens aren't bad either.
Built quality of Nokias is excellent. Cost cutting effects are seen on Corbys with materials looking and feeling cheap. I'd prefer Nokia over Samsung. But still you can get a feel for it from your retailer.
Other of your "primary needs" are satisfied by Nokias, I'm not sure about Corbys but you can check with your retailer if you choose Corby.
Its getting long but I want to add one more thing, you said you're buying touchscreen phone for the first time, I would seriously suggest Nokias as they come with a lerger screen which is sure to give you a better experience. And also 3G and GPS, these are excellent feature addition to your phone. And here are some pics of the phones in hand to help you decide :
