Suggest a phone to me....Full list of Must haves inside...£250 budget

8 replies
Found 23rd Jan 2009
Right, im looking at getting a new phone (pref PAYG or contract with cashback, with a total cost of under £250).

I want a large touch screen, with preferably a slide out Qwerty keyboard, Must have GPS with decent software, or the ability to put tomtom on it. Preferably wifi. Decent camera would be a bonus, but as long as its at least 2mp thats fine.

Not sure if any of the "new" phones have it, but TV out with the ability to play divx would be a big bonus.

Any suggestions? At the minute the MWG Zinc II @ £199 seems like the best one with a large touch screen, slide out qwerty keyboard, gps, tomtom, wifi, camera isnt great, no tv out and a unknown make (to me anyway).

Looks good - I have some credit in my paypal account as well...im guessing as its symbian I can install tomtom on it...and it has tv out, but by the looks of it wont play divx....

HTC Touch HD, although no keyboard but definitley works with tomtom and a quick install of coreplayer and it plays divx no probs.
Nice big screen as well ]http//ww…spx

Lacks quite a lot of the features I need/want (GPS is a must have), but looks a good phone for the price. Thanks anyway.
