Nokia 5800 XpressMusic seems to have it all - large 3.2" touchscreen display, 3G and Wi-Fi support and even a GPS receiver aboard. The cute Nokia 5530 XpressMusic kept only the Wi-Fi, its display shrank to 2.9 inches and the battery capacity was decreased to 1000 mAh but the device costs considerably less than its smarter bro. Then the 5230 was introduced. And now we've got some live shots of it.

When it comes to the recently announced Nokia 5230, the situation with the specs is only a tad different. It shares the same design and touchscreen with the 5800 XpressMusic and just like it comes with a built-in GPS receiver, 3G capabilities and a promising 1320 mAh Li-Ion battery. There is no support for Wi-Fi, though, and instead of the 3.15 autofocus snapper of 5800 XpressMusic you'll get a 2-megapixel fixed focus one. Well, at least it can take VGA videos at 30 fps.

And here are the live images of Nokia 5230 we told you about just a second ago. Some of the color versions are missing but the red and the blue ones are here, posing just for us. Take a peep.

Even if our source predicts that the Nokia 5230 will hit the market some time in January 2010, we believe that the actual launch will take part sooner than expected - Nokia promised that the device will become available during the last quarter of this year. By the way, Nokia 5230 showed up on the Italian operator TIM online shop page several days ago and the price they set is 189 euro. Not bad, huh?

This seems like a step backwards, it's almost the same price point as the 5800. When are we getting an upgrade to 5800??
