Nokia released its additions to touch series phones in India , finally. I was really wondering with recent delays, strange decisions with release of new phones by Nokia. As pointed out in my earlier blog post Nokia has been very selective about phones which they release. Actually this in my opinion is not good for both Nokia and users. Having freedom of choice is good.
But now they have released at least much awaited 5530XM and 5230 India. Very important thing is pricing of 5230 which will be available at Rs. 9389 . Which means market price can will be about Rs. 9000. I guess it will be cheapest phone which support GPS+3G. Also don’t forget its full fledged Symbian S60 5th edition smartphone !!! It lacks WiFi and Front Video Camera. Also it has 2 MP camera onboard. Nokia has decided to taken on Samsung, LG who were ruling low end touch screen market with their Star/Corby and Cookie. Major difference with 5230 and these models is 5230 is smartphone whose capabilities can be enhanced by various apps.

Today my good friend Arjun Parsi(@arjunpar) told me about Xmas offer of voip service called PennyTel. I was surprised to know that they are offering 10 million minutes of free calls to USA, UK, Canada, Australia,India, China.
This is a strictly limited offer, from the 18th of December to the 2nd of January, or when all the free minutes have been used (whichever comes first), and is exclusive to members only.
I have earlier tried such limited period promotional offers from Skype but they never had India as country option for Skypeout calls. So I was really overjoyed to try this offer from PennyTel.
Also since I own Nokia N82, which supports SIP and Internet calls, I was able to configure it.
