Finally after almost 3-1/2 years, I managed to change my mobile phone. I bought a T610, in 2004 and it was considered as one of the best phones in the market and I spent almost 12 grand on the same. A couple of weeks back, during diwali season, I was trying to find out whether there were any discounts for mobile phones and there weren’t much in the offing. But I particularly liked one model, and that was Nokia’s 5310 Xpress Music. I was slim and sleek and was fully loaded with all the functionality required for today’s cell phone. But to my surprise, none of the retail stores that I visited had that model for sale. Everyone told me that, it is available only in Nokia’s retail stores. I was surprised at that time, as to why is this phone is such a demand. Nokia had closed the channels for this phone to be available in other retail stores, before it got the chunck of the revenue through its sales.
But today as I hold it in my hands, I truly believe that it is one of the best phones that I have come across. Its slim, sleek, light and runs of Nokia’s S40 Platform.
