I m also very disappointed with NOKIA. I m using 6233 from last 1 year and I have no problem with it. But the launch of these cheap handset is too much delayed. its really disappointing. I love nokia for their quality and durable handsets, but why this delay. I also believe that Samsung and LG is winning battle here, just because of this delay from nokia.
its not only in india that they delyed to release the this phone.. i am in malaysia n has not been released here too.. i asked nokia malaysia about its availability n they said tey dont know when they will release as the phone has to meet the goverment and carrier regulations, and it is yet to be realeased... i dont know where this crap is from but it is really frustrating.. i hav waited for two months for this phone.. but i think i can wait 2 weeks more..
a frind of mine has got it in the UK n he says its awesome... so all of u who are planning on changin your mind on this phone.. try n thonk twoce about it.... we hav waited this long.. n a week or two isnt goin to be too bad if its worth the wait..!!!
plus i doubt the OS on the sumsung touchscreens... i had a terrible experience with the first omnia....!!
m verry pissed at nokia but i think i can wait a week or two n see how....!!!
Haz any1 bought the "Blue on White" version yet??????????????????????????????????

I think nokia is dragging the universe to an end 4 that fantastic innovation.my number 08069776365 in case of any free code 4 opera just call
I bought this phone from Carphone Warehouse in Inverness over a week ago now and i am loving it, the camera is really not that bad for a 3.2mp, the menu's are straightforward and so simple, the touch sensitive display always works one touch, the video playback in widescreen is a bonus, symbian operating software and i've already found loads o free apps through the bookmarks pre-installed in the phone without GPRS charges as the phone has the built in wifi. Overall, i've had approx 29 phones over 5 years and this is the best i've had yet. just waiting for my 16gb memory card now :D p.s. cheap too! great value!

Can we do multitasking in Star 3g??Plz tell..for example while browsing internet can we play music?I heard that its not possible
Even I got frustated waitin.....
Guyzz can someone plzz some reference whether there really any samsung star wifi going to come to indian market....I will definitely go for it if it launch in india by september.....
I feel Nokia management just underestimate indian market...Even i feel they are going loose there market share to a huge amount down the line to lg & samsung...
I feel they just doesn't bother about indian market....There maketing strategy is really bad....
Hope 5530 price will be 13k, else I will not buy this phone for sure...and will continue with my 1100 phone....
I am really frustated.....
if you are talking about touchscreen phones nokia comes last in that.nokia has delayed touchscreen phone and is almost 1year behind other manufacturers

For power users nokia 5530 is better than samsung star wifi..
Had nokia 5230 come with wifi than 3g n gps like 5530,that would have been a great phone,at least for me, since i dont care abt cam,flash,xpressMusic,etc..I just want a touch screen smartphone with wifi n a good web browser..
Nokia 5230 would be a better choice over samsung star 3G, People who want wifi too can go for star wifi..
