Nokia 5230 Giveaway at TechHail Winner Announced

Recently I had won a Nokia 5230 in the Nokia Tweetup Event held in Bangalore. I’m already using a Nokia 5800 which has some high end features when compared with 5230. So I thought it would be a better idea to give “Nokia 5230” to one of my TechHail readers.

    Nice initiative to promote the blog and reward your blog readers πŸ™‚

    Tweeted about it here

    My 2 cents:
    You have not mentioned link or twitter handle to be followed (Though it sounds like people need to follow @samratp)

    For helping people tweet the message easily you may create a similar link that will directly let people to twit by clicking on a link.

    Will also prolly write a review about this contest on one of my tech blog.. Will update about it later!

    Wish you all the best for the contest.

  17. webbografico says:

    I love the Nokia 5230 because it’s free for me if I win this great giveaway!!!

  18. Firoze says:

    First of all, thank you very much for the thoughtful gesture of gifting the Nokia 5230 that you have won… I know that it must have been a tough decision for you, deciding whether to give away this great Nokia 5230 or keeping it for yourself, although your 5800 may have made that decision a bit easier! πŸ˜›

    Actually a friend directed me to this site, and now I can’t stop thanking him. Although I’m new to the site, I did stumble upon some very good articles of your site, and I’m planning to subscribe to your RSS feed to keep myself abreast of the latest happenings in the tech world. πŸ™‚ Thanks very much for creating this site and providing for a great new bookmark for my Firefox! πŸ˜€

    As for the mobile, sure it does not have all the features that we can see in the Nokia 5800 & the 5530, nevertheless, the Nokia 5230 has its own charm. What attracts me most to this phone is the fact that so many high end features have been packed-in in this mid-level priced mobile phone, making it accessible to the middle segment consumers of the market looking for a budget smartphone. Symbian S60 v5, great audio quality, 3.5mm port, accelerometer, 3G, GPS, decent camera and tons of great 3rd party apps! πŸ˜€ Definitely a phone worth owning! πŸ™‚

    I guess that’s it; those are my views on Techhail & Nokia 5230. πŸ™‚ I neither have a blog, nor a Twitter account which is why I’m limited to just leaving a comment on your blog and a single lottery ticket. However, that single lottery ticket may turn out to be lucky!

    Thanks for conducting this wonderful contest! πŸ˜€

    Techail is the site for gizmo geeks. It is filled wwith lovely tips and tricks, updates and gives information about the latest apps, and the best part the uber cool and easy to understand tutorials. I just love this site and when they r giving out a free phone which just shows how much they like their readers. The site is AWESOME(read as if I shouted) and the phone would be a cool companion if i won. I am currently stinking with a Sony ericson T230(please dont look it up lest i feel embaressed). Whether i win or loose Kudos to this site. Keep it up

  37. Harmesh Rohira says:

    Hail MOGAMBO!!(Hail Samrat!!)….Wat a ‘GIVEAWAY’ maaannh…Too Good…

    Actually i was shocked to see that…..some1 is actually giving a brand new “BOX PACK NOKIA 5230” as a “GIVEAWAY” which he has received as a token of gift, for his blog readers……Gr8 thought maaanh…This shows wat kinda person u are……..

    Count me in too buddy for this wonderful GIVEAWAY…….I’m in too…

    Likings for the mobile goes as follows:——
    . Great Look and design…luks almost similar to Nokia 5800….
    . Very cool and exciting features lyk–Symbian S60 v5 (O.S),accelerometer, 3G, GPS, 2MP Camera(not baad at all)and tons of 3 party-apps(which i’m pissed off using it on maa NOKIA 6300)…
    . So many high end features…yet priced in a mid-level range not affecting the pockets of consumers(which is the best part)….
    . So, this is Definitely a phone which i wont deny owning jus for the sake of not providing a WLAN support..(which perks a lot at times)..

    So this was my take on the FEATURES OF the Kewl Phone….Yeah this is it; these are my comments(views) on Techhail & Nokia 5230.I have chosen this method(i.e COMMENT method and TWITTER support) as i don’t have a blog…So i expect a single/double lottery ticket(fair chance to win)…
    So dude….plz count me in for this giveaway….as i require a new phone very baadly!!!!!haa haa lolz!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks in Advance for this wonderful GIVEAWAY!!!


  38. vhick says:

    I like Nokia 5230 because its almost complete feature minus the wifi. Even if don’t have a wifi. You can enjoy its feature like quad band, touchscreen with 16M colors, easily put your favorite headset because of 3.5 audio jack. 70MB internal and up to 16GB external memory. And many more!

    Thanks for this great giveaway!

  39. Rahul says:

    Hey, that’s nice gift from you samrat. Thanks for hostgator hatchling price. I got my account activated.

  40. Divyanshu says:

    Mr. Samrat,

    I just went throught this blog of yours… and I am really pleased that you are giving away nokia 5230… since its launch i have been searching about the phone. My cousin recently got it and I really liked the phone a lot… A full touch screen phone at a price band of rs. 9000 is a grab..It is a very nice decision by Nokia… This phone has everything a luxury phone should have at a price which a middleclass indian can afford… The phone is a hit in the youth world also… My classmates are discussing about this phone and I just wish I could have it….

    Thanks Man..!!!
    – DiVi…

  43. Fasil says:

    An excellent touch screen at affordable price is what Nokia is doing today with all features, I m sure this gadget will make the difference in the touch screen segment.

    Love to use this gadget and stay in touch with this gadget for long time… Hope I take away this gadget..

    Here is my twitter entry

    Wow, nice giveaway!

    So, recently one of friends bought this phone. “WOW!” was my first expression when I saw this phone for the first time! The 3.2 inch touch screen is gorgeous and crystal clear. Touchscreen is quite responsive but it might be a problem for people with big fingers as the touch controls might be small for people with big fingers. The camera and sound quality is nice but loudspeaker sound quality could have been better.

    Phone’s GUI is superfast! s60 v5 totally rocks. I tried multi-tasking on this phone and the phone was able to handle everything very well. Browsing the web on this 3.2 inch is an awesome experience as well. Proximity sensor and Accelerometer do their job well and typing in the landscape mode is very comfortable! microUSB and 3.5 mm jack are added advantages. I was getting about 4 MBps transfer rate while transferring data from my PC to the microSD card!

    A 434 MHz processor + 128 MB RAM + 3.2 inch touchscreen + 3G + GPS + lots of other features… at this (<10k INR) price point = awesomeness! Now, who wouldn't wanna own such an awesome thing?

    Btw, here's my tweet: πŸ™‚

  45. Naga says:

    My brother is using this mobile and I loved its touch screen media player and camera. Of course there were many other useful features. But these two took the cake for me!

    This will be perfect gift for my wife on her birthday. A Nokia Phone with Touch screen and 2MP camera. She can store lots and lots of podcasts and music. Hoping to get rid of her Motorola phone.

  48. NAVEEN says:

    Great contest, touch screen and sound quality is amazing, so i hope to win this nokia 5230.

  49. Suhas says:


    Well, I don’t have a mobile and certainly wish for one. A cool touchscreen mobile would make my day (or an year maybe) πŸ™‚

    By the way,

  50. Rishi says:

    All phones should have GPS. Its an awesome service and Nokia 5230 has GPS.

  51. Rishi says:

    There should be an App on the Symbian to use the Accelerometer and GPS to keep track of the jogging path/routine.

  52. Rishi says:

    awesome specs.. proximity sensors, 3G, Bluetooth, GPS, Acclerometer all in Nokia 5230. $225 is pretty good price for this package.
