Rajeev, 28 Aug 2009In dream BSNl Price 399rs u get 100mb hahahaha i will wait for vodafone to come out with their schemes. The whole world uses 3G so the price is bound to come down when all the networks start providing it as theres competiton. Right now only bsnl and mtnl provide 3G so prices are high
Hello. I purchased this cell phone 4 days ago, and have been using it since then. It is a very new phone, having rolled off the assembly line in Beijing (same place I bought it) on 8/11. I find it very nice to use, and the interface (even without update) is quite smooth and easy to use, with no discernible faults in operation. It is to be noted that the 5530 comes without a ROM battery, and date and time will have to be reset every time the battery is removed, unless power is connected. Overall, it is a very nice phone with plenty of features to warrant the price, and a very nice screen to boot. My rating: 9.5/10
Anil, 28 Aug 2009eshaan, I never criticized 5800, but always appreciated 5530, is that worng. I have just repl... moretrue the 3g is not developed yet but india can not lag behind the world forever. 3G is going to be introduced within 5 months in india which is the rumour. And initially prices are going to be low to convince people and to get them attracted to 3G.

Hey if comes in weeks time in jaipur n by that time if its not available here, I will go jaipur n buy it :)))
I know its better said than done, but m eagerly waiting for it.........................
I'm from Jaipur and I checked at my nearest store and a guy there told me that 5530 will come in a week's time. But now here I'm reading mixed responses. Anyways, if I get it in a week's time I'll inform you all.
i think 5800 seem much better deal because of these deficiency in 5530
1.Smaller screen (2.9″ compared to 3.2″ of 5800)
2. Absence of 3G
3. Lacks GPS hardware (Now that explains its all slim and sleek look)
4. TV out cable, spare stylus and plectrum, carrying case are absent compared to the box contents of 5800
5. Comes preloaded with a lower capacity memory card (4 GB compared to 8 GB of 5800) and a different headset model (sports silicone ear buds)
Priced at 13k, 5530 definitely has an obvious price advantage over 5800 which sells at 16k but the compromises are rather too heavy in the hardware department so overall 5800 seems better if you neglect the design thing.
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2009ya its launched in india at 14k but it is still not available in indiaIt will be available around 12.5k within 2-3 weeks time
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970i got it from uk it cost 130+20 pounds 20 for unlocking d mobile and a mandatory top up of 10 pounds i think its revealed in india on 25th august but am not sure whether it s available in shops in india
why this is much expensive than 5800 ? its less features than 5800...nokia wats dis pricing scheme? not good company
Mangesh S, 28 Aug 2009i wonder how many people will use 3G when it comes in india. Currently there is gprs, EDGE but... morewell 2 years down the line 3G will cost will be like these days normal call. broadband is seprate thing without 3G broadband or net users can't grow as fast as govt think. The government is hopeful of completing the spectrum auction within 90 days
