The Nokia 6500 slider (127g) has been having mix review over the net. My friend who saw it in Singapore says its about USD151 cheaper over there than the Malaysian price once conversion is done. The fine stainless steel body casing is pretty neat as you won’t get thumbprints smudges on it and the slider looks like it can withstand an earthquake. If you want a slimmer version, then have a look at the Nokia 6500 classic (9.5mm) versus theSlider at 12mm.
