you are mistaken. nokia concept store is also in new delhi now.
I've had the 7710 a while now and would say that the latest firmware helps a lot over the initial versions which were slow and buggy. Currently my phone is very reliable, but then I am messing about with it less (and leanding to people less)and use Switcher to clear up the memory every now and then. It is no slower than any other phone I have used either.
However, when making phone calls, my ear brushes the screen and can adjust the volume or even cut off the call which is annoying. Also, I have a couple of light scratches on the screen now, which is a shame.Also the stylus has fallen out when I take it out of my pocket a couple of times.It is slow to display photos if you have many in the directory and the pdf viewer can take an age (but it does on my 2Ghz pc too). I have not recommended it to my fiancee as she needs a reliable phone for business. I've suggested to her the i-mate Jam or the 9500.
All that said, I love the thing myself and think its great I can play games, listen to the radio, read a book or watch a video if I'm bored. Its also great having Slovoed dictionary, f(x) and the convertor to hand and I have found the MS Office compatibility handy for work. The camera is v. good quality too.
Hope that helps.

Please suggest if the instrument really has some probs

Don't be upset.It's not England.It's rather NOKIA who has not yet distributed the ver 4.01 firmware to all it's CARE-center(I Think!).'Cos I'm from India.Even though I just managed to buy a new N7710 last saturday with the latest ver. of firmware,two of my friends have confirmed with Nokia Care(their authorized service station in India)that they haven't yet recieved the latest firmware to help them.
Serjoe, if you hate England so much, no one is stopping you leaving. Please keep your opinion of England to yourself as it has nothing to do with phones. It especially thoughtless given the current climate in England to say you will "join the club". There again, you never thanked me for last my e-mail to you (but there again no one did), so what do I expect?
JUST comE back from Nokia Service Center in London- why the english gets everything last-The new firmeware is not available yet in england.will be hopefuly next tuesday.
I will join the club "I HATE ENGLAND"
Forgot to include the price...I got it for Rs.20500/-
Lemme know if I can be of any further help.

It seems the dealers there are selling their old stocks. All the new stocks that hit the market last week are with version 4.01. I got it from New Bombay. The details are :
The Global Telecom
Tel : 022-56111111
I'm from Bangalore.I bought my N7710 from the only Nokia Concept showroom in India at Church Strret,Next to Brigade rd. last saturday.It's got the latest firmware version 4.01.I've actually enquired a lot in other Nokia Priority dealers.Honestly speaking,I didn't find anyone having the stock for the same at the moment.
Hi Dhiraj(from Mumbai),

I'm away from my works PC, but I will reply to those who still need games and apps etc when I get back on Monday.
Ref mapview, there is a forum on the my-symbian.com web site which explains how you get the maps working. I dont have the software with me, but you basically need to convert .jpgs etc using a convertor that you can find links to on the web or in that forum. I must admit I have not been able to convert a map as yet, but then I have been busy.
The only way to connect the phone to a pc / mac is either via the USB cable or Bluetooth. It does not have irda or anything else like that sadly.
Firmware: the method of downloading it etc is expensive and dangerous. You need to go to a service centre and get it done there. The lastest firmware is 4.01.0 in most of the world. It should not cost any momeny to do this.
The p910i is older than the 7710 and is showing it. The sound quality of the 7710 is better imho, having heard both. Mp3s on the headset are great and stereo, but from the phone are mono, but still really good. I would have liked them louder, but people have said you can convert your Cd's into MP3's and set the loudness up when you convert. Overall though, the 7710 sound is very good and more than loud enough indoors (outside in traffic, its hard to hear it).
The phone cannot run uig/p910 software. It can run s90 software and some s80 software. I've also had some s60 apps work, but I couldn't interact with them as I had no keyboard :o)
Nobel, you have to go into the phone application and enter a code. It is something like #*6000#, but I cant recall without being at work. Go to mobile-review.com and look on their Nokia thread and it will tell you or I will on Monday (though I think its already been told here as well).
Picodrive allows you to play sega megadrive and sega genesis roms. eemame allows you to play old arcade game roms. BEst standalone games are sky force, superminer, jewel rumble and no mans land.
Hope this helps, got to dash.
