> In reply to rakesh @ 2010-03-24 04:34 from t}b} - click to read1) card support -
"memory of any phone more than 4GB useless"
the basic use of a mobile phone these days is to carry data on the go... mostly music
so if ur not using the rest of data on your laptop you are actually wasting it

2) addtional features
"install java software for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF from mobiles24.com"... why look for 3rd party when you can have something built in?
C510 has an advantage with Motion gaming - i like it!!!

3) Messaging
boy!!! C5 gives you all the options

4) Phonebook
i ll stress on the fact that this phone can handle everything on its own without depending on memory card for storing contacts - how's that??

5) C510 wins the video battle, but seriouly do you actually depend on video from a mobile phone???

6) GPS
ya ya ya... "google Map software installed in phone which is equivalent to GPS"... u like to depend on 3rd party things

7) nothing's better?? people make your decisions now

for me, i am awaiting C5's debut in India

Wow C5. Slim s60 phone. Light weight also.
Will surely sell like hot cakes once its released in India.
Personally i am satisfied with all the features it has except that the present 2.2' screen could hav been easily stretched to 2.4' considering the length of the phone. With 2.4' it could have matched with the likes of N73 and N82. But still, not a big issue. All other features are gonna rock considering the price tag which i hope could be around 10 K.

i m going to buy C5 & billions of people around the world also. C5 sales will reach 10 times the total sales of your SE C510 in just one month.

i m not saying any bad things about C510. Its a good phone too. but i prefer to buy C5. reasons>

* stereo speakers: i use to listen songs while doing my works. i don't like using headsets as they make me unable to listen some one else.
* Symbian OS: i love Symbian so much. great multitasking capabilities. & 600 MHz with 128 RAM means a real Multitasking beast. millions of free softwares available on internet for symbian(office, security, multimedia, emulators, games, themes, etc.)
* CPU: whether you admit or not but this ARM 11 600 MHz processor really makes work fast, like blink of eye. this helps especially while browsing internet.
* Document viewer: i really need this(Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF).
* Social Networking Sites(SNS) Integration: about 30 SNS applications are coming inbuilt with C5(Facebook, Twitter, Orkut, YouTube, Flickr, MySpace, Picasa, etc.).
* Flash Lite 3.0: means great full support for every website. especially like YouTube. 600 MHz processor do the rest work.
* 3G Mobile TV: C5 equipped with great 3G capabilities(no doubt). 3G TV depends upon the service provider (like BSNL). it is a area specific service. it do not depend on mobile phones. any mobile with 3G and that 3G TV service can go for mobile TV.

Nokia C5 or SE C510?
Its all about your choice!

> In reply to Rakesh @ 2010-03-23 04:21 from t}b} - click to readNokia C5 can record video VGA @15 fps and QVGA@ 30 fps and your S.E. C510 only QVGA @30 fps...
So it is pretty clear that Nokia C5 have better video recorder.
You could check this on Nokia site..
Lol ! Your C510 dont have front camera but in C5 you can video call+ capture image+ record video from the front cam.
Because this is a 3g enabled phone so it will surely have 3g tv...
And where is viruses are concerned, you can easily download Anti-virus on C5...
Now tell me who is better, C5 or C510.
