RIDHIMA, on email

Within ` 15,000, you have some good op­tions to choose from. To start with, the Mo­torola Moto G 16 GB vari­ant is among the best. Xiaomi, the Chi­nese hand­set man­u­fac­turer, is also step­ping into the In­dian mar­ket. Xiaomi Mi 3, which will be sold ex­clu­sively through Flip­kart, also looks good. Last, you can also con­sider Nokia Lu­mia 625 or the Black­Berry Z3.

I AM PLAN­NING TO BUY A NEW LED TV AND WANT TO SELL MY OLD SONY LCDTV. I GOT IN TOUCH WITH A JUNK SELLER, BUT HE IS NOT WILL­ING TO PAY ANY­THING FOR THE OLDTV, WHICH IS IN A GOOD WORK­ING CON­DI­TION. HOW CAN I POS­SI­BLY SELL IT ATA DE­CENT PRICE?

You can try up­load­ing a pic­ture and spec­i­fi­ca­tions, along with the de­sired price on por­tals such as OLX and Quikr. People check these sites for sec­ond hand gad­gets too. Flip­kart has also started sell­ing TVs and is run­ning an ex­change of­fer. Last, you can al­ways check out com­pa­nies’ pro­mo­tional schemes for a good dis­count on ex­change of an old TV.

I AM PLAN­NING TO BUY AN IPAD BUT SOME­ONE TOLD ME TO WAIT AS NEW MOD­ELS WILL BE AN­NOUNCED SHORTLY. IS IT TRUE, AND WILL THEY COST LESS AS COM­PARED TO THE CUR­RENT PRICES?

SACHIN, on email

Yes, Ap­ple is due to an­nounce the launch of new iPad mod­els in the com­ing months. How­ever, it will take close to a month for the mod­els to hit In­dia af­ter the in­ter­na­tional launch. The prices will be ei­ther same or higher than that of ex­ist­ing iPads. It will def­i­nitely not cost less ow­ing to the cur­rent dol­lar rate.
