3G has just hit India, and now many mobiles companies are providing handsets to enjoy this new Technology. Recently in my blogs I have covered 3G mobiles like Apple iPhone 3G, Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 and Samsung Omnia.
So lets explore the three:
Apple iPhone 3G: Apple iPhone 3G is mainly the iPhone+3G. Just to inform when you buy an iPhone, it’s not just a phone you get, but an entire package. You get iTunes, App Store and that brilliant user experience. It also has a 3.5-inch multi-touch screen and an interface that can’t be compared to any phone. It has good battery life.
On the downside it doesn’t have a video calling capability. Also only a 2 MP camera is a no no.
Approx iPhone 3G (8/16GB) comes at Rs.30,000/35,000. Read more
Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1: Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 is a Windows Mobile device. The XPERIA X1 has a slightly slower processor as compared with the Omnia, at 528MHz. It also has a 256MB RAM. The XPERIA has a 3-inch screen with an 800×480 pixels resolution. As always with Sony Ericsson the audio quality of the phone is good too. With a QWERTY keypad, the XPERIA is pretty user friendly, a good bet for business users. With a specified talk time of 10 hours (2G), it has a good battery pack. This has 3.2 MP Camera.
Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 costs a Rs. 44,500(Approx). I guess this is a bit bigger price. Sony Ericsson must think of reducing this to threat the iPhone. Read more
