I bought this TRIBAND widescreen(65K TFT) handset, E398 3 days ago for Rs 10,250 in Mumbai (India).It has amazing stereo phonic sound and onpurchase 64 MB Transflash card(can store mp3 files)that fits on your nails and USB cable are astonishing features for the given price.It has glowing lights besides two 22W stereo surround polyphonic speakers make it excellent.It may not be as tawdry in look as Nokia 7610.It may be compared in its segment with Nokia 6600 which presently is priced Rs 11,500.Its VGA cam (4X digital zoom) is also far better than 6600.However it does not have Symbian OS which 6600 possesses.But this drawback is well compensated by java enabled platform applications.
I have tested its bluetooth with my PDA
Tungsten T3.It works perfectly fine.It does not have inbuilt radio ; which can be attached with a headset as an accessory.The best part is the sound quality of reception is far superior to my old Nokia 3100.I rate this phone *****.
I wonder why people purchase Nokia here just for the sake of its brand popularity.

cool phone!!! unfortunatley there is no tap extended option... is the upgrade in libis for free?
I had this phone since last December and I think this phone is quite good except that the operating system is soo slow that when u just access the last dialled calls menu, it takes a few seconds, and it it also slow in keypad... Plus the memory card can only support to 256 MB. But the sound is soo good!... in the phone. THe earphone come with it does not have enough bass punch... and no equalizer. Plus it cannot record video, but can play MPEG4. Rating:7/10 Good
