    Please help with some suggestions for buying a new mobile. My budget is from 10-20k. Preferably around 15k, will go for 20k only if its really worth it.
    Here are my requirements: (in order of priority)

    1. It should not be too flashy or 'teenagerish' . I won't buy walkman (w550 or w800) just because of that. Though it should look good, stylish yet classy.

    2. Sound quality. Since I will be using it primarily for buisness purposes which requires alot of negotiation on the phone, this is essential.

    3. Properly spaced keys. I also do alot of texts for buisness so this is important. NOTE : I do not however, require a mobile with a keyboard.

    4. Sturdy. It should not be too sensitive. I don't want it to stop working after a single fall. (or ten for that matter)

    5. Value for money. Everything after point 5 is secondary I don't wan't my budget to increase because of those. However, the phone should be cool enough to have the 'ooh' appeal.

    6. Features. Buisness applications like word editors, excel, internet connectivity, bluetooth etc.
    Music playback, good camera, video recording etc. come next.
    A good starting memory is also a plus.

    Any suggestions ?

    @official techie: razr v3 is too delecate. Atleast you should've read my priority list.

    @hacker: I said i don't want anything with a keyboard..pls read..

    Any other suggestions?

    I was planning to buy either w810i or one of the N-series. Is w810i sturdy and durable?

    Look up... up in da sky... see me yet? Nah... Use
    I was just thinkin of suggesting the w810 or the NSeries, u beat me to it ;)

    SE phones r slightly less sturdy than the Nokias. But they carry more flaunt value in my POV.
    Better (not in no. but in usefulness) features too. Like camera, music...
    But since ur a business-type a guy, with more emphasis on the performance, price and features, a Symbian phone has to be ur target, more pointedly the Nokia N series, rounded up to the N70-72. Pick within this breed and u'll find ur goal, son!
