Nokia puts 5700 and 5070 on the table

Tags: Nokia

Today Nokia announced the intriguing Nokia 5700 XpressMusic and the affordable Nokia 5070 bar. The Nokia 5700 XpressMusic looks like a mix between 3250 and 5300 models while the Nokia 5070 widens the Nokia portfolio in the budget segment with new... colors.

The Nokia 5700 XpressMusic is the latest in the Nokia music-oriented range dubbed XpressMusic. It offers the same twisting design that made the Nokia 3250 so popular. With a mere twist you switch among four modes of operation - music player, digital camera, video telephone and a smartphone.

The 3G-enabled device features a number of music-oriented features such as a dedicated audio chip, a standard 3.5 mm audio jack, built-in stereo loudspeakers, and stereo Bluetooth support. The device is also equipped with a 2.2" 16M colors TFT display with a QVGA resolution, a microSD memory card slot and a standard miniUSB connector.

The 2 megapixel camera and the FM radio only add to the vast array of multimedia features that this pup can offer. Last but not least, the device is no ordinary phone but a smartphone powered by the latest Symbian OS 9.2 with the S60 3rd edition user interface.

The Nokia 5700 XpressMusic is expected to hit the market in Q2 2007 at an estimated price of 350 EUR.

The Nokia 5070 is a device much simpler and bears a fresh design but we got to admit that it may fail to freshen up the Nokia budget line of mobiles. The primary reason for that is that the Nokia 5070 is functionally identical to the already available Nokia 6070. The 5070 would have only made a difference if it had Bluetooth support - something that it doesn't have. Anyways, it's up to the user to decide and our guess is that looks is going to be main selling point of the Nokia 5070 as its primary distinguishing point in comparison to the other Nokia budget mobiles.

The Nokia 5070 will be available in the Q2 2007 at an expected price of EUR 100.
