Color Handsets Under Rs 3000

Intex IN 2222 – Rs 1999
A well-equipped entry level handset, the IN 2222 has a sleek black form factor with a 1.5 inch CSNT display, sporting a resolution of 128 x 128 pixels and 65K colors. It has plenty of media functionality in terms of an audio player and an integrated FM radio, and photo and video caller tone support.

The In 2222 supports GPRS and comes with a few games and a flashlight feature as well. It offers all the basic functions like a calculator, calendar, to-do list, world clock, alarm etc. Aside from these it has a Blacklist function for blocking unwanted calls, as well as a 'Health' feature.
Nokia 2626 – Rs 2050
The 2626 is one of those ubiquitous handsets I was referring to earlier. It has a CSTN display that allows 65K colors at a resolution of 128 x 128 pixels. It's not a great-looking handset, to be honest. It’s a little pudgy, but it does have quite a few relevant features, considering its modest price range.
The 2626 has about 2MB of internal user memory. This GSM handset supports MP3 ringtones, but we’re not talking full tracks here. GPRS and WAP are supported, and you get a few games and an FM radio as well. It also supports JAVA MIDP 2.0. Other features include a calendar, calculator, currency converter, voice memo, and a built-in handsfree.

Samsung C170 – Rs 2200
The C170 is an extremely slim sleek handset with a depth of just 8.9mm. It has a 1.52 inch CSTN display with a 128 x128 pixel resolution and 65K colors. Aside from being a stylish entry-level handset, it offers some decent functions like GPRS (Class 10) and supports polyphonic ringtones. (Remember how popular those used to be at one time?)

Some other features Samsung has incorporated into the C170 include an integrated FM radio and a couple of games. This handset also has an organizer, calendar, currency converter, and a to-do list. The C170 has a built-in speaker for handsfree use and a voice recorder as well. The internal memory is just about 600KB.

Motorola W215 – Rs 2450
Motorola’s W215 is one of the more feature-rich handsets in this price bracket. It has a 640 x 480 VGA camera and video. The screen resolution is the similar to the others in this section – 65k colors CSTN with a 128 x 128 pixel resolution.
