Best place to buy Nexus one in India? Or should I go with HTC Magic or Tattoo ?
I am seriously done with my Samsung i780 Windows mobile phone. Fed up with restarting the phone at least twice in a day after it hangs. Even normal functions have become so slow over last 6 months that it frustrates me no end !
I have now set my eyes on Android based phones. I seem to have few options on table for Android based phones. I am not sure, but here in Pune none of the dealers seem to be carrying any Android based phones – though HTC Tattoo is available with Authorized HTC dealers.
Guess currently I am limited to 3 options HTC Tattoo and Magic along Google Nexus One.
This one is aggressively priced at around 18000 rupees and has got most of the features. The actual user reviews are decent enough. But one drawback, small keyboard is something which I have to think seriously.
Has everything I need and is priced close to 28k, however not sure if 10 k difference between Tattoo and Magic is justified. I might as well go in for Tattoo and save 10k and live without some tidbits here and there !
Now this is the phone which I would go for in a snap, but again it is not that easy. The price is steep and getting it in India does have it own issues ! Nexus One seems to be currently available in India only through 20north.com , this is the first time I am hearing about them. Also, the total cost comes to whooping 33k (after adding Customs, Taxes and shipping).
Wanted to know from readers if there is any other place where I can get my hands on Nexus One? If not, I might as well look for someone coming from U.S and ask him to get an unlocked Nexus One. The saving would be close to 5k.
Nexus One would be and Ideal phone – only if it was priced a little lower (and off course if I could get easily here in Pune)
I am sure there are others who must be sailing the same boat and drooling over these Android phones.
Over to you readers – Suggestions are open :) I would be especially interested in users who are already using one of these phones and letting us know the feedback about the same.
