At a not so distant past, touch screen phones were one of things that only the rich could indulge in. Looking for a touch screen mobile for anything less than 10,000 rupees would have been a laughable thing. But a sudden drop in the prices of mobile phones has made a large number of phones available for less than Rs. 10,000. As a matter of fact at the bottom of our page about touch screen mobiles, you will see a large number of touch screen mobiles for less than Rs. 2,000!! In this post we shall look at some of the best mobile phones available at a price point below Rs. 10,000.

Nokia 5235: The Nokia 5235 is one of the best 3G touch screen mobiles available for less than 10,000 Rupees. It happens to be the most expensive one amongst all our recommendations in this post. It comes with a 3.2 inch TFT(Thin Film Transistor) resistance touch screen. The Nokia 5235 runs on the Symbian operating system. The processor is an ARM 11 processor.

Nokia 5230: The 5230 is another touch screen phone from the Xpressmusic family of Nokia. Similar to the 5235, the 5230 has a 3.2” TFT screen. Even the 5230 does not have any wi-fi support though it supports 3G networks. It has got an on-screen QWERTY keyboard and a number of really useful apps like skype. Both these phones enjoy the impressive support network of Nokia available almost anywhere in India. The cost of Nokia 5230 is only Rs. 7,028.

Micromax A60: The Micromax A60 is the cheapest Android mobile available in India. If you want to experience the Android platform and do not have the budget for more expensive models then the Andro A60 is one of the best choices. The screen is a 2.8” resistive one. The screen may create small problems at times but that should be good enough considering the fact that the best price of Micromax A60 is only Rs. 6,275.

Nokia 5233: The Nokia 5233 just qualifies for this category by a single rupee as the Nokia 5233 price in India is Rs. 5,999. In spite of being cheaper than the 5230 and 5235, the mobile has a 3.2” touch screen (same as 5230 and 5235 and better than the A60). It features number of interesting things like proximity sensor and accelerometer as well.

Lava A10: When I started writing this post about touch screen mobiles below 1000, I did not intend to have an entry for any mobile below 5000.

It has a 3.2 megapixel camera. It supports GPRS connections but does not have wi-fi or 3G connectivity.
