1) Nokia E63
Rating: 82 Very Good
Price: Rs. 8,600
The Nokia E63 smartphone offers excellent business features at an affordable price.
The little brother of the Nokia E71, the Nokia E63 lacks a GPS receiver and preinstalled games, and it has a downgraded camera. On the other hand, it possesses the same excellent email and messaging capabilities as other members of the Nokia E-series. And the biggest news here: the E63 sells for less than 10K.

5) LG Cookie
Rating: 72 Good
Price: Rs. 5,200
The LG Cookie (also known as the KP 500) is a phone with a noble purpose. It attempts to give users a full-touch interface at an affordable price. It succeeds to an extent by being a light-weight phone with a well-designed interface but also manages to fall short on certain fronts.
At the LG Cookie’s price, a fully touch based device is a good buy. However, the Cookie is hampered by an erratic touch based system and below average imaging capabilities… (read more).
