i bought it today in white color.im in pakistan karachi.i love nokia phones and i hear many rummors about tihs super phone and thats noly rummor,,i used 5530 but believe me 5230 is better than 5530,its soo nice super nokia well done,,value for maney
i luv dis phone but all i need is a pdf and ms word phone,so SE w960 and 5230.which one is better?
u can get it here in sweden and danmark for as low as 190$, so if u buy a micro sd from ebay(u can get a 16gb from 39$), micro usb (from 3$), tv-out cable from 3$ (not sure if it supports it though),, so it would tottaly cost u 240$,, that is 110$ less than 5800 for the missing wii and a little worse camera (i wouldn't rely on 5800 cam anyhow!),, so seems like a great buy for me for a tottal 250$! i wouldn't buy n97 mini (though i liked it so much) as i won't pay 650$ and get the same 455mhz processor of 5230 and with no divex-xvid support

Anonymous, 18 Feb 2010hello friend i am confuse bt 5233 & 6303 which is better what is advantage of smart phone.... moreOkay, time for another comparison.
6303 vs 5233
Good that you don't need GPS or 3G because both doesn't has them.
So the differences are camera, phone size, screen size, smart functionality.
In camera 6303 scores with 3.15 MP snapper with autofocus and dual LED flash. 5233 has a 2 MP fixed focus camera with no flash.
Screen size is better for 5233 with its nHD 3.2" wide resistive touch display with aspect ratio of 16:9. 6303 has 2.2 inches QVGA screen. Clearly 5233 scores big time here.
5233 is smart, has Symbian with Nokia's S60. 6303 has Nokia's proprietory S40. Both have JAVA. But clearly there will be more JAVA apps for 6303 as it has a pretty standard QVGA resolution screen. 5233's nHD is still new but it is growing with newer phones from Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson. (5233 will support JAVA as well as Symbian apps).
6303 is pocket friendlier than 5233. Its smaller.
Another thing is that 6303 has dedicated number pad which is missing in 5233. 5233 has on screen touch input. It'll give you full QWERTY to type messages. And 5233 has accelerometer so it'll recognizes orientation of the phone.
Battery life is another thing to think about before buying a new phone. So 5233 has a larger battery but its battery life is same (according to GSMArena : http://www.gsmarena.com/compar...dPhone2=2658 ) as 6303. This is because 5233 has a power hungry screen which is always ready to respond to every touch.
That is more or less it. Make your choice.
i want to know can i read pdf files & ms word files in nokia 5230 give me the download links pls
