A number of new handsets, bundled with mouth-watering offers, are available in the market. Nokia’s much-awaited E72 is now available in India at Rs23,000.
This is not an upgrade of Nokia’s once-famous 6600, but a phone that’s completely different. Nokia’s 6600i is a slider handset that is much lighter than the 6600. It comes with a 2.2-inch TFT screen that supports 320x240 pixels (QVGA) resolution and a 5MP camera with autofocus and double LED flash. It also includes Nokia Xpress audio messaging and speed dialling for sending SMS. It is available for Rs13,000.
Sony Ericsson Xperia Pureness
Sony Ericsson has launched the world’s first phone with a transparent display, Xperia Pureness, based on its Xperia platform. Xperia Pureness is being targeted at elite users, just like the Arte series from Nokia. It comes with 88MB of internal memory, Bluetooth A2DP and USB connectivity. The quad-band GSM radio offers worldwide roaming capabilities, while 3G technology with HSPA support can deliver the high speeds needed for the NetFront Web browser.
The Nokia X6 has a 3.2-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen with 16M colours. Besides a 5MP camera, a proximity sensor for auto turn-off and an accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate, the X6 also features handwriting recognition and a scratch-resistant glass surface. It comes with a huge 32GB memory that can store unlimited contact entries, detailed call records and music/movie collections. It has a 433.9MHz processor with 128MB RAM. Its estimated price is Rs31,500.

Classic Diamonds was at a high of Rs136 on 11 January 2008. This was when the stock market was at an all-time high. Following the cascading market decline, this stock too collapsed and came down all the way to Rs6.15 on 6 March 2009. It recovered to Rs21 on 5th June, declined thereafter to take support at Rs13.30 on 10th July and then rose again to Rs30 on 18th September. Its decline from Rs49 (16 May 2008) to the base of Rs6.15 (6 March 2009), its rise to Rs21 (5th June), its decline to Rs13.30 (10th July) and its subsequent rise to Rs30
(18th September) can, together, be seen as approximating a rounding-bottom pattern. The logical target price, according to this pattern, is the original level from which the stock declined—that is, Rs49. This should be reached in about six months.
