Sanjay, 19 Jan 2010Specs look god! Ilast purchased N72 2 .5 yrs bak.
Absence of wi-fi is an issue. I wonder w... moreThere are manufacturing and materials-used cost involved.
Think about what you get :
1. Largest screen with an unrivalled resolution in its price range.
2. In-Built GPS chipset.
3. In-Built 3G
4. A large 1320 mAh battery.
On top of all this you get the usual Symbian S60 OS, 434 MHz processor, 3.5 mm audio jack, JAVA MIDP 2.1 support, Bluetooth etc (check the specs page here : http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_5230-2909.php )
At least they have got a 2MP camera on board.
If you wish WiFi then there are other Nokia touch screen smart phones available: 5530 XM, 5800 XM, N97 mini, N97, X6. All comes with WiFi. ofcourse they are priced higher.
Its not that Nokia doesn't want its smart phone users to have a WiFi in their phone. Its just that they are giving a cost effective option to people who donot prefer a WiFi or doesn't want to pay much for a touch screen smart phone.

Absence of wi-fi is an issue. I wonder why's that not here with such a smart phone. Also, how Nokia chooses to provide between 2MP and 3.2 MP is hard to understand.
Any users feedback here?
abishek, 19 Jan 2010"DABBA MOBILE hai" samsunsung star have (3g)7.2 mbps HSDPA and nokia have only 3.6 m... moreWhat you're talking about is Star 3G.
There are others Star, Star 3G and Star Wifi
Not to mention price difference.
And 7.2 MBps is of no use since in India MTNL / BSNL are offering 3G with max 3.6 MBps only.
And dabba? Is it how you call a bar phone in Indian languages.
Hey ppl, let me tel u, this mobile has jst wide touch screen nthng else dnt go for dis 1
As it has such a wide screen it mush hav atleast 3.2 mp camera for better quality pictures n videos, 2mp is not satisfying.
i'm hav already 5320,i would like one touch screen phone.i purchase 5230 but really not worth of that cost
Today there's surprisingly a new firmware for 5230. Yesterday I found only V11.0.079, but today it is updated to V12.0.089. Given the fact that 5230 has just been released, there are already 2 firmware updates. What's wrong with Nokia software development team?

I beg to differ on your post(which is inaccurate) which states that OVI Suite offers... moreActually it is the Nokia PC suite, Nokia has started rebranding everything to Ovi, like Nokia maps became Ovi maps, the app store is now called ovi store. But it hasn't happened with the PC suite.
What I meant was PC suite.
And about it converting video files it is clearly mentioned in the GSMArena review, "you can use the Nokia PC suite built-in application that automatically converts all kinds of video files to the format and resolution your phone supports."
You can read it here : http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_5230-review-427p6.php
I try to provide information as correct as possible but due to uncontrollable disturbances in my surrounding some errors creep in.
You can point out any other inaccuracy that you have noticed and I will try to clarify it.
Hope to hear from you.
