Price:The new Nokia N79 is available in India at price of Rs.14,000.It is a value for money deal if you are ok with the non-QWERTY keypad of the Nokia N79.It has a good 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus and dual-LED flash.


  1. Right now from Nokia following 3 are good candidates in mid price range. 5800 Xpress music, 6700 and N79. In terms of quality they all are good and cost around same price.

    6700 and N79 are almost same so choice can be random also. Though N79 has better performance, but for normal person you wont notice much.

    N79 is almost 2 years old phone and having typical design while 6700 is bit stylish. 5800 is though having almost same features but it’s camera is 3.2 MP, however it will take almost same quality of pixel as 5 MP.

    Moreover While 5800 has better music compatibility in terms of sound (stereo headphone), storage (8gb card), touch screen, modern look etc.

    So according to my view winner is 5800 music phone. then N79 and finally 6700.

    But hey competition is still on, a better version of 6700 is coming as Slider phone which looks awesome, so when it will be launched it will beat N79 for sure. So if you can wait then better to buy 6700 Slider.

    At the end I advice to go to and compare all 4 models to see what they offer (specially freebies) and decide at the end.

  7. I want to tell that Nokia phones are good but the services of the Nokia care are not at all satisfactory and also they not behaving properly with the customers and the company is also not taking any action against them. So for better after sale services I suggest Samsung or LG.
