iam using this piece for a month now no doubt its a good piece but the only draw back is the ring tone is too low to hear with the maximum volume setting and poor performance of speakers rest all features are satisfactory.

1)Is this phone has A-GPS? I have unlimited internet plan & can i instal & view full ovi maps with voice navigation as similar as nokia 5230?

Rest assured all softwares that are available for Symbian S60 Touch ver. will be available for download on 5230. So softwares for (not again...) 5800 XM, 5530 XM, N97, N97 mini, X6 will run on 5230/5233. Most of them, as there are hardware differences between the devices.
About Corby plus, its almost similar to CorbyPro without 3G or GPS. Its like the 5233 ver. of 5230.
There has been a comparison made between CorbyPro and 5230. Search for "CorbyPro" in the forum search above to search for the review. It was @ 2010-02-06 18:28 by Farhan.
Anonymous, 10 Feb 2010guys shall i buy this mobile or should i go for corby with keypad,,, pls helpI would really suggest buy this ph0ne than corby. 5230 features excells than corby. At first i waz worried too when using touchkeys much instead of keypads, but after 4days of using it, i finally find touchkeys m0re easier to type than pressing th0se hardn0ck keypads at all. And also, 5230's keys has a soft vibrati0n as it is being tap so u would kn0w it resp0nse. Ü
And the very best part of my experiences fr0m this ph0ne are as follows:
1. Internet Browsing
i use operamini5.0 and its really like surfing with a netbo0k or alm0st like pc. And when downloading 3gp's are so fast. Just be sure to have a c0nstant gprs or 3g signal so it w0nt have any delays. I am an internet lover so i am very happy to have this ph0ne as an alternative from a desktop pc.
2. Watching video
Its bigger screen 3.2 inch suites best for streaming and watchng m0vies directly in ur ph0ne. And u can easily read its capti0n, if theres any.
Having this ph0ne really r0cks! So far so g0od. And oh by the way, this is a smart ph0ne so it supp0rts multitasking, that really beats corby. Ü
Rohan, 10 Feb 20101> how good is this for internet browsing and sites like google reader
2>can apps like ... more1> Browser on 5230/5233 is one of the best in class with flash support.
There might be some lags in panning/zooming or scrolling. But you can also use Opera Mobile 10 or Opera mini 5 for non-flash sites.
2> .pdf can be viewed with a software installation.
3> To view presentations or to use it like a ebook reader you need compatible softwares i.e. softwares running on Symbian. Nokia has its own Office document viewer/editor that can be purchased from them or you can download a free software off the web. Most ebook readers like Stanza has Symbian versions, you can get them running on 5230/5233.

Can any 5230 user tell me that is it a good phone?? I mean all rounder???Bcoz I will also buy it..... plz tell me...........
like what they cloned the e71 to have the little brother e63. They use the same strategy, downgrading the succesful 5800xm to this phone. This marketing strategy really gets old. Just add less than 100 bucks, you'll get 5800. Unless 100 bucks is a big deal to you.
