After more than 2 years with my Ericsson A3618, I bought a new mobile phone – a Nokia 6100 model – color display with polyphonic ringtones – at a reasonable price of Rs 9,900 (approx US$ 220). I guess that’s still at least 25% to 35% more expensive than its price in the US or the UK – but I thought it was still a good price for India, where we are used to paying more for everything.
I am now looking for Level-4 polyphonic midi clips that I can use as ringtones 🙂 So if anyone knows where I can get some decent Level-4 midis, please do let me know. The 6100 instrument bank includes 29 melodic and 14 percussion instruments.
One other particularly useful feature of the phone is that, when I have connected it to my laptop via IrDA, I can use the Phone Editor software that comes with the phone to send/recv SMS messages just as if I were using a POP3 mail client – pretty cool eh?
