25 Aug 2009 - By Omar Yesid Mariño+
Nokia has decided to reveal some details of one of its coming products, which is called Nokia 5230. It is a new smartphone with a really nice design. The official launch is expected to occur in the fourth quarter of this year. Probably, it will catch the attention of many people around the world, and a lot of comments from the media (including blogs and websites) due to its low cost.
Some features of the Nokia 5230 include:
* Built-in 2-megapixel camera
* 3.2-inch touch screen
* Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity
* 3.5 mm stereo headphone plug
* Slot to insert microSD memory cards with hot swap max. 16 GB
* Ovi Maps 3.0 application
* HSDPA support
The Nokia 5230 is a sort of combination between the Nokia 5800 and Nokia 5530. Of course, maybe it will be not the perfect gadget for those who like to use very exclusive mobile phones but, anyway, it will be a good low-cost alternative with a great design.
This small smartphone will cost approximately 150 Euros (USD$ 215). However, Nokia is also planning another version that will come with the service Comes With Music (a subscription with 1 year of unlimited access to a lot of tracks); that version will cost 260 Euros (about US$ 372).
Next, you can see a short video about the Nokia 5230. Just a little preview, so you can get an inkling about how it looks.
