Don't forget this phone has accelerometer for auto rotation of the UI when you turn it sideways i.e. in landscape. Corby doesn't have it.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 2010i wants to know when it is available in delhi and where??????????????plz help meIts available at nokia priority dealer (benz india pvt. ltd) c-126, naraina ind. area, new delhi-28ph: 25896343, at price of rs. 8,500/-, once you buy it pls let me know the sound quality...
Hi shorya this phone is available in jyanti market at nokia dealer.
What!!! there is no WLAN. Nokia should wake up to the competition.
The 5230 is great for everyone !!
Although it comes with a 2mp cam and no wifi ( i use my iphone or laptop for that ) its still a very nice phone... Besides, browsing the internet with nokia phones are kinda slow so i don't get bothered with 5230 having no wifi... Even though the phone supports 3G, it doesn't have a front camera like the iphone, i guess nokia think front cams are kinda useless and from my experience, i've never actually used the front cam of any of my phones (besides having no front camera reduces the bulk of the phone or you could add other essentials in the phone.
Also, the box comes on different packages acording to your country i guess, in some countries, like malasia and the philippines, the back cover has a stylus, there is a very short data cable included and an additional 2gb memory card stored in it are the maps and leaves 1.4gb free space. Other countries like the ones in europe come with the same package as the review by having no stylus at the back cover, usb cable and even the memory card.
With my experiences with the phone i find that it is a very good phone to use although it has some issues that needs to be fixed. First of all, is the contacts bar, its very hard to control because sometimes when i try to slide it, instead of sliding the contacts, it selects the contact that i've pressed. second, there are times where u need to tap an item twice before it registers... which is kinda weird because i have to wait for about 2 seconds before i realize that i need to tap it again. Third, the scroll bar needs to be widened...Finally, can the caps lock be moved to the right side, because it can be easily pressed by accident
Is it possible to read pdf files using Nokia 5230..those who use 5230 plz reply..
DB, 01 Jan 2010Please note.... This phone has 3G, but that is restricted to internet access. NOT for video ca... moreSeems true. I have taken the phone. But 3G is not available for Video Calling. The Nokia dealer also says the same. I did not listen to him and thought he is wrong because 3G is mentioned on GSM arena.
