I tried a lot but could not figure out a single decent Blackberry in this range. However the above mentioned phones packs a lot and are fairly priced.

You might get an impression that I am biased towards biggies and do not consider Indian manufacturers, which is not true. I tried to include some Indo-China phones in this category but could not find one as it seems they include most of the features just for the heck of it. Do you think in the same way.
