vino, 04 Jun 2011is there any handset with the same features,wit the similar cost................?There is the CEDAR also. Compare it with Naite and choose. Let me help you with a few points....
Advantages of Cedar;
A. The UI advantages.
Cedar uses the newest user interface of SE as in Elm, Hazel etc. Smart dial is a useful feature; you need not open contacts and type letter by letter to dial a contact. Just dial the name in the standby screen, as you type message in dictionary mode. For example to call 'VINO', just dial 8-4-6-6. It is very fast and intelligent.
Contacts categories is another introduction. While adding a contact, just edit the category field and it goes to the corresponding category. It is more useful if you synchronize contacts with outlook since category is a standard field in outlook.
Cedar has home screen widgets which make the screen more alive. There are utility widgets; clock and notes. Add note or view upcoming tasks with the notes widget. The clock widget has analogue and digital options with option for clocks for 3 different countries. Then there are the communicative widgets- My space, facebook and twitter if you want to stay updated with friends.
There are more features in the cedar UI. There are some missing features also like code memo and photo DJ. But overall the interface is advanced and better than Naite's.
B. Other Advantages
1. Cedar has faster 3.5G (7.2mbps) than naite(3.6mb/s)
2. Cedar avoids the fast port system connector and uses a standard port- THE MOST IMPORTANT ADVANTAGE I say, because You have to be lucky for the fast port not creating issues.
3. Cedar has a standard 3.5 mm audio port, you can use any standard headset of any brand.
4. A little more stylish(well, this is only my personal view) and rigid design and ergonomics than Naite.
Disadvantages of Cedar compared to naite
1. Naite has front camera; cedar has not. Both has video call facility but face-to-face chat is not possible in cedar.
2. Low speaker sound in Cedar- the speaker sound is really low! Even Naite is not among SE's loudest handsets(though it is enough loud) and cedar's sound is lower than Naite. There are reports of some users removing a dust-cover membrane fixed on its speaker, and getting normal sound. If you go for cedar you should either be ready for such experiments(at own risk) or to accept a low sounding speaker..
Now make the choice yourself. Remember, Naite is a value-for-money handset with front camera and a good interface. It will never disappoint you.
cedar and naite-Techno
is there any handset with the same features,wit the similar cost................?
Naite is really an excellent phone with a very affordable price...in fact the best 3g phone with front cam within Rs7000 range. Got to admit that the camera quality is above par expectations...only misses the flash option........
Other wise hats of to SONY ERICSSON for such a wonderful user interface....really splendid........thanks SE

thank you for your replies. here I give additional information about my memory card.
currently I am using Kingston microsd Class 4 for my phone. do I have to buy SanDisk class 4 to make it work? what about using higher class than Class 4?
Harsh, 30 May 2011No, nw a dayz PC suite is not provided in box.... However, u may dwnld it from S.E. website With greenheart phone no data cable also is provided. But as soon as u connect the phone to ur comp using bluetooth or a datacable the PC Companion gets installed from ur phone to ur PC. Later u can update this and it become pc suite in ur comp.
I am using this phone since Sept , 2010. One major problem is that it cannot catch network when there is the slightest drop in the network. I have seen this using it with Vodafone, Airtel and Tata Docomo networks in Kolkata, India.
