    Friends,
    I am planning to buy a fone. Budget upto 15,000. I have thought about buying a w700i or n 3250 or k750i. I have other fones in mind, too. But problem is that i don't understand what is Symbian.
    (1)watz the diff. btwn s40,s60 and other symbian levels?
    (2) what is the use of symbian?
    (3) DOES HAVING SYMBIAN MEAN THAT VIRUS CANNOT ATTACK THE FONE??
    PLZ HELP!!!!

    Hope this helps:

    Series 40
    Series 60
    Symbian OS

    Series 40 phones hv smaller screen, a few appliactions.
    Sereis 60 or Symbian phones hv Big screens, fully customizable. U can change the GUI, menu appearance, install many s/w like u install in Windows.

    But there is a BIG risk of viruses in series 60, which is not in Series 40 phones.

    IMO Nokia 6630 is the best symbain phone under 15K. I dunno the latest prices but it should be b/w 11-12K. It is a Symbian series 60 phone version 8.1, AFAICR.

    Wel,l 6630 and 6681 have the same processors and both are qually good, but since the shape of 6681 is better than 6630 and its also slimmer go for the 6681. It costs around 13k while the 6630 costs 11.2k.. worththe price difference

    I've heard that 6630's processor is more faster than 6680. By the way, i wouldn't like to buy a fone that would be too big for my pocket(in size)!!

    Nokia 6630 is Symbian OS v8.0 and to support my statement here is the link:
    http://www.symbian.com/phones/nokia_6630.html
    And there is a hell lot of difference between v8.0 and v8.1 as the kernel itself differs between these two versions.
    And if you can stretch the budget a bit go for 3250 as its Symbian OS v9.1 which has lots of security features.
    Hope this helps.

    LOL! Quite the opposite, actually. Symbian phones can be attacked by viruses. But if you take care to install an antivirus app and deny anonymous Bluetooth requests, you should be just fine because Symbian viruses are not too widespread, yet.

    Hey thats not the case with the new phones.
    Symbian has taken care of the virus threat and now its gonna be nearly impossible to attack a Symbian phone.

    Well .. the 6680 tends to get slow as u use a very colour rich theme .. simple ... 6630 as 65k color screen and the 6680 262k one ... now a higher bit depth on the same processor (220 MHz ARM) tends to slow it down ... so as long as you keep ur theme selection proper , u won't get any slowdowns ...

    Also .. 6680 has OS8.1 while 6630 has OS8.0 .. which means that the 6630 has better app. compatibility .... but the 6680 doesn't fall behind much .. about 2-3 incompatible apps ...

    Bottomline .. stick to Symbian Series 60 v2 OS8.x for best performance and compatibility ...

    About the 3250 .. i was not much impressed with the set .. except the sound i didn't like anything else ....

    If u do want to invest on a good symbian phone .. then chose between the 6630 or the 6680/6681 ... the later having a flash ...

    And about virus infecting symbian phones. .. dude .. loads of antivirus are present already ... and likewise ... as u do for ur pc ..u'll have to do for the phone too ...
