I bought it for 8500Rs in Nokia Priority.
Phone is really good. Especailly white colour really rocks..
Cheaper than 5800 Express music ( ~ 5500 Rs less)
The phone does not come with a memory card or a datacable. So be prepared to shell out 700 extra.
I got this from nokia priority dealer in mumbai for 9000 inr. Phone is very good except for the volume levels. The volume levels in the headphones and the loudspeaker volume are too low. Its difficult to listen to music in a crowded noisy place.
ppl looking to buy this may decide to wait bcose nokia surely come with an intuitive touch interface this year.

@ anybody who has this handset.
I have a question : How is the experience of reading .pdf documents? In both portrait and landscape mode.
Does it strain the eye if you read for long periods???
Here's a pdf, try it on our phone and just check it, alright : http://www.math.missouri.edu/~hema/balsabha/BalSandesh/Sandesh%20V7N2May04.pdf
Nikhil, 11 Jan 2010Nope i have micro sd 1 gb card. i use bluetooth for data transfer. and yeah i did trouble them... moreThat explains the Rs. 8300/- price tag in other states.
Its like Rs 600/- more.
I don't think you get a return ticket to Karnataka in 600.
But for a more expensive handset, the travel will actually save you money. Only if one has time.
And about the memory card, do you think 1 GB is enough???
Videos and all. You would be using this phone to half its potential if you aren't watching videos on it.
And applications. They too require memory.

Most will/should work on 5230. Of course apart from the one that requires a particular hardware (camera flash for eg.)

Poor handset....not many video formats supported, difficult to configure GPRS settings, poor battery, camera is ok, sound is very low, poor headset in the box package....
