He'll need a SIM-free phone if he wants to use it with a local SIM.
SIM-free phones are sold at pretty much the same price everywhere (+/- a
few pounds). A good place to shop for them is <http://www.expansys.com/>.
As for the model, if he wants to stick with a smartphone, the Nokia N73
would fit the bill. 3G with a much better camera than his N70. Not exactly
slim but not that big either. Other than that, you could have a look at the
E65 or the not yet released N76.
