    I have an Old N73 and would like to buy a new phone.
    My requirements are,

    *Smart phone
    *A good camera. To catch any sudden photos. I use my digital camera for all the regular photos.
    *I have an iPod touch, so wont listen to music from this phone.
    *It should have a good calender feature.
    *WiFi and 3G
    *I do use the SMS, so the keyboard/ touch response should be good.
    *A smaller form factor would be great.
    *Budget is 10-15k

    All help would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks to both of you...
    How much does the 5630 cost?
    5730 was really good looking, but I guess it will cost more when released in India. So it might cost over 15k. I have already stretched my budget to 15k, do not want to add any more. Or I could wait a few more months and buy a bit more costly one.
    Is there anything like the design of N85, N86..

    5730 is around 18-19k and it has not come yet.
    5730 not worth buying at so high price
    There are many other phones which can easily go ahead in specs in comparison.

    ^^ I was sitting pretty thinking it to be a 15k phone. Does that mean I will have to start my search all over again? BTW, when is it expected to hit Indian stores?

    the price is just a speculation ... noboby really knows ... see a 5630 which retails at 195euro is sold here at 12k ... so this is expected to be 220euro ..so u can do the math... wait for a few weeks ... the nokia website says the 5730 is coming soon ... so expect it within a fortnight
