    Hi,

    A friend of mine wants to buy a phone in the range of 15-16k. His main concern is that it should be be having a MP3 player with excellent sound in addition to the standard features like:

    2MP camera
    GPRS
    262k screen colour
    Infrared
    Bluetooth
    FM radio
    MP3 player
    Stereo headset etc

    Please note that his main concern is great sound. He loves to listen to MP3's on the go. We were considering Nokia N72, 6270, Sony Ericsson w810i, etc. Which one do you people recommend? Is there any other phone in this range with all the above features and excellent sound?

    Please suggest. Thank you.

    W810i is the best choice in this segment. It has the best sound quality of all the phones in this category. An added bonus is that it has a great camera. At 14k (latest price), its a steal.

    Well W810i has all the required features. And I don't think any other phone can beat walkman range when it comes to sound quality. It will be within your friend's budget too.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. Anyway, I wanted to know the latest price of this phone. Can anyone help?

    Secondly, will they give a memory card alongwith it? What is the capacity? And what is the price of a 512MB/1Gb extra memory card?

    If u only want Music than go for W810i However u have to buy a decent memorystick extra as said above by kiran.rkk

    If u want expandability + music go for Nokia 3250 its Symbian + Almost equal music quality to Walkman series and u get a 512 MB memory card
