Internet penetration has certainly spiked in India recently; and so has the need for wireless Internet in homes. Not everyone would like to shell out a lot if they spend most of their time at home or at office or college where there is a Wi-Fi network. You can save quite a lot by spending about Rs 6,000 on a phone that offers Wi-Fi network support.

Here is a list of Wi-Fi phones that cost less than Rs 6,000.
