No news is good news and the Nokia 5730 XpressMusic is quite keen to go about humming that tune like it didnít care. Recruiting Symbian for an entertainment job is nothing new really and no, weíre not surprised that yet another handset wants to be the N97 of its neighborhood. The Nokia 5730 XpressMusic doesnít really shine but itís fit enough to handle quite a workload. Whether you need a smartphone for the knack or for the fun of it, this all-in-one messenger promises a bit of everything: music, web, gaming and connectivity.
XpressMusic has long crossed the smartphone line but only just starting to take multitasking so seriously. WLAN, GPS and a full QWERTY keyboard go side by side with enhanced music and N-Gage to make the Nokia 5730 so universally appealing. We guess weíve had enough proof that Symbian can handle it all, so letís see how the 5730 XpressMusic lives up to its claims.
Itís pretty obvious there will be quite some Nokia 5630 XpressMusic here. Itís virtually the same handset Ė add or take. So, whatís the deal in the end with adding QWERTY and a bigger screen and taking some processing power?
The Nokia 5730 XpressMusic is treating the younger crowd to the all-round skill of dadís E75. Alright, it may not be as simple as that but the 5730 is only just some corporate email (and plenty of steel) short of Eseries excellence. The XpressMusic QWERTY messenger is heavy on entertainment of course - dedicated music keys and N-Gage-conscious design, along with full pack connectivity. The complete keyboard, elaborate organizer, the office package and GPS are enough to start talking business.
Well, even if the dedicated gaming buttons and the digital-style alphanumeric font used on the keys leave little doubt about the target audience demographics, the Nokia 5730 XpressMusic looks too big for its niche. The first QWERTY messenger in Nokiaís music lineup is a solid smartphone package thatís definitely worth the test ride.
