Monday’s Economic Times brings an interesting piece of statistic in its news story Nokia Bets on Lumia Regain Market Share. The graphic in the story talks about the market share of different players in the Indian smartphone landscape and how things have changed from Q3 of 2010 to Q3 of 2011.

Certainly worth a look with the fortunes of likes of Nokia, Samsung and RIM swinging in opposite directions πŸ™‚

HTC S710: A Beauty

A geek buyer to a shop-keeper – ”Hey, I am looking to buy a Smartphone”.

Shopkeeper – Great, Sir! Check out this one, it has got a stylus, a huge screen-size and what not and what-not!!

Buyer – Well I am looking out for something which should have Windows 6.0 version, a WiFi support, should have a minimum screen-size of 2.4 inches, possibly have a 2.0 mega-pixel camera, a qwerty keyboard, some gigs of expandable memory and my budget, well it is not more than 15K.

Shopkeeper – Sir, check out this one then. It doesn’t have a stylus, its got a qwerty keyboard and is quite cool. I must say its fulfills most if not all the features you’re looking out for. (the shop-keeper uses all his experience to market the cellphone)

Buyer – Ah.. looks quite cool. How much does it cost?

Shopkeeper – Price slightly higher than 15k it costs 19k bucks.

Buyer – 19k ? No, I don’t think I have my budget fits it at this stage. I really cannot stretch beyond 15k. Thats the upper-cut for me πŸ™‚

Shopkeeper – Ok, there’s one option still remaining. Its the cool HTC S710. Its fits your budget and its a true marvel Sir πŸ™‚
