For that budget you should be able to get a great Sony Ericsson. The Nokia N series is way more flexible and powerful overall but since you've specifically said the phone doesn't need to be a hardcore smart phone a Sony Ericsson would be the ideal choice. Great looking, small enough for a lady to carry & great camera + audio. I'd advise against buying grey market stuff though. Also make sure it has Carl Zeiss optics, it seems likely that all their high-end models would have Zeiss but I'm not 100% on that. A little research on their site should help you narrow it down to a specific model.

Any good phones without the music thing? Without audio in them? The radio part is fine but I don't think she wants a Walkman phone...

any decent phone with a decent camera would have the forced camera thing...and sony cybershot is the only decent phone below 20k which has a 3mp camera. cybershot is better than walkman phone as the concentration is on the camera and not on the music features. someone tell me if there is a 3mp camera phone in the market which sells for below 20k in the indian market... :D

exactly. my mom had an issue with me when i wanted to buy my dad a moto razr. i had no issues. i wanted my dad to have a decent looking phone. in the end he decided to go for reliance and i just had no options in finding him a decent looking phone :(he just said that airtel charges are way too high and reliance bills come much smaller. :confused: i just had no answer on this.
