BlackBerry 8800.

I've got the 8700, and it has everything above except the camera and FM radio. The 8800 has everything except the FM Radio.

I have the BlackBerry 8800 and I am thrilled with it. The GPS program does get you around, although it is not as good as GPS-only units, but I guess as with all all-in-ones there has to be a compromise somewhere. No camera or touch screen on the 8800 though, but is great with e-mail.

Good luck.

If there was an indian distributor already, it would certainly fit. But that will probably still take a while, so it's not in the running yet.

I meant it in sarcasm. I like the Iphone a lot, but would definitely wait for version 2. iPhone has few bugs that have to be fixed, and can certainly get some more functionality.

So far no hardware-related flaws are apparent to my knowledge. And Apple has a good track record of providing added functionality through software updates. "First revision phobia" is largely overblown with Apple. Most of their revision A products have turned out to be fine.

Yes. And it even has a question mark...!

The iPhone has the features you've requested above, but it's not available in India or anywhere outside the USA yet.

The biggest difference in practice will be in the user interface and consequently in the resulting ease of use (or lack thereof).

How about the new Sony Ericsson P1i?
It should be shipping soon. It seems to cover your needs well.

If you are interested in the iphone then you should be able to get through ebay or something, provided they are unlocked and can be used with an India network

Please, PLEASE, do NOT get the P990i. i'm on my third now, none of them can keep the time - and my dad has the same problem with his (on his 4th). They are flimsy, tones are quiet, buttons are nasty, random software bugs which change on every single phone i get - I can recite a list of about 20 simple but piss off annoying faults - and all on a phone which retails at £300.

Well, one of these would do a better job than a P990:

Hands down the keyboard is great.
I;ll recommend the only smart phone of recent months that I have gotten on with:

SPV M3100 (I THINK its called the HTC Hermes)
Get that if you can!!!!

Yeah, its great.

Look at any HTC distributor for the HTC TyTn

That is the original name. Otherwise it is sold under many different brands including Orange UK, Vodafone Europe, Tmobile UK, Germany, USA.

I highly recommend HTC TyTN for everyone. It just has got everything you need. Battery could last longer but as a bonus, you can recharge with computer through USB..
