    Hi guys,

    Finally my ancient mobile died on me. Hence looking for a new one. Till date, I have been using lower end mobiles with the only objective to make and receive calls.

    Now I want to upgrade myself to a smarter phone.

    My main requirements
    1. Reliability (wont be changing my mobile for atleast 3-4 yrs)
    2. Good touch screen (Just for the experience)
    3. Music (Want to get rid of my Sandisk player. would want to listen to music while on the move via bluetooth)
    4. Camera (wont be my primary camera so quality of photos is not that important)
    5. GPS (Though I prefer to use Eicher Road Atlas, just for the heck of it, would like to use GPS as well )
    6. Budget 15-17k

    Based on these requirements I have shortlisted

    Nokia X6
    Samsung Wave
    Nokia C6

    My questions:

    1. Should I go for X6-16GB or wait for 8GB model? any idea how much will be the price difference?
    2. Wave is good in all respects, except for GPS usability...i mean no ovi maps...and I would not like to have gprs activated!...any other alternatives....can I use satnav maps on this phone?
    3. C6..is still not released...could have waited for it...but then read that the price range is going be arnd 20k! Should I wait for it to be released?

    Since I have an backup phone..I can wait for a month or two for something more tempting to be released.

    Are there any new releases lined up which would be worth waiting for?


    Appreciate your responses.


    Thanks
    Mohit

    Thanks guys..for ur responses.

    Few questions:
    1. What maps can be used with wave?
    2. Somewhere I read that to use GPS (not AGPS), with OVI maps (on nokia phones), we would still need gprs connection. Can someone please confirm this?


    Thanks,
    Mohit

    Google maps should work on Samsung Wave. (but not sure. last time I checked it was not native app and was not there in bada appstore)
    for ovi maps, initially, you need to connect to internet to download india maps and after that you won't need GPRS. Ovi Maps is offline maps client.

    wave is great lookiing and slimmer as compare to X6 although its cheaper and has more apps at the moment.

    wave's unavailability of indian GPS maps is a real turn off. i dont wanna use GPRS myself.
