Gaurav Paneru, 20 May 2010guys and gals plz suggest me i m going to buy a new cell phone plz suggest me which phone is b... moreIf wifi and better camera is your priority, go for 5530. It also has a smaller form factor, stereo sound and better looks.
A cheaper option is 5230 with a-gps and 3.5g connectivity but no wifi. Bigger display and better battery backup than 5530.
If none of these are your priority and styling is your only concern, then Corby plus might suit you. It's definite advantage over the above two being the availability of a physical qwerty keyboard. But in all other aspects, the other two beats corby fair and square.
wow this is very good and nice phone because this phone is not costlier than any other phone . i specified it. so i take this phone in coming sunday
guys and gals plz suggest me i m going to buy a new cell phone plz suggest me which phone is better between samsung corby plus,nokia5230 and nokia 5530.plz reply.

About Maps (For 5230 and 5233)
With Maps, you can see your current location on the map, browse maps of different cities and countries, search for places, plan routes from one location to another, save locations, and send them to compatible devices. You can also purchase licenses for traffic information and navigation services, if available for your country or region.
When you use Maps for the first time, you may need to select an internet access point for downloading maps.
If you browse to an area which is not covered by maps already downloaded in your device, a map for the area is automatically downloaded through the internet. Some
maps may be available in your device or on a memory card. You can also use the Nokia Map Loader PC software to download maps. To install Nokia Map Loader to a compatible PC, see www.nokia.com/maps.
Tip: To avoid data transfer costs, you can also use Maps without an internet connection, and browse the maps that are saved in your device or memory card.
Note: Downloading content such as maps, satellite images, voice files,
guides or traffic information may involve transmission of large amounts of data
Network positioning (for 5233 and in case satellite signals not available indoor then for 5230)
Select Menu > Maps.
You can use the mobile network to find your current location, even indoors. This is
faster but less accurate than with GPS, and you cannot use the location as a starting
point for navigation. To use the mobile network for positioning, select the network-based positioning
method from the device settings. When you start the Maps application and your GPS connection is ready, GPS replaces mobile network as the positioning method.

Once user has maps already loaded on the device, there is no necessity to connect phone to network, so no data cost. (but phone should have AGPS support). Even though 5233 has no AGPS support, it can be used as GPS device using network based positioning. It can also be connected to external AGPS receiver via bluetooth to access satellite based positioning, that is assisted GPS.
I still see some peoples confused between GPS capabilities and supported standards of 5230 and 5233. I would be posting what Nokia has to say about this in detailed online user manuals.
What is all included in the box? Is there a headset, usb cable, CD or what?
absolutely rocking mobile phone with low price.... I recommend everyone to buy this mobile:-)
Ajinkya, 20 May 2010Who will load the maps? Internet connection is required to load the map details of location de... moreGood going there mate.... The problem here is that ppl often confuse network access with internet or gprs connection. I have map of india installed on my 5233 through ovi suite from my pc. Honestly, i have no problems what so ever with my network based positioning and i can work 100% offline if i am using just the maps and positioning. The only difference is accuracy. With network based positioning, the location accuracy is very low compared to a-gps and gives information of you general locality. This same data is used by 5230 as well and uses it as raw information for locking onto nearby satellites. This is known as assisted gps. As part of the job is done by the network tower itself. The phone acquires the tower's cell id to get a general information in its position. Later on the gps takes over and directly connects to the satellite for further lock on the phone's position.
