It is the first smartphone to feature the latest Symbian ^3 platform. The Symbain ^3 is better than never before even if it can't match other operating systems such as iOS, Android and Windows Phone 7. The number of applications as of now are also limited and although there is a decent number of them to start off with you don't have too many to choose from right now.

To own a smartphone with the above features at a price of Rs.26,259 is nice.
