i just bought this
cost me rm 750 or around USD 200 with 2GB memory card.
no extra casing
made in hungary
battery made in korea
the manual in hungary
BUT...i am totally satisfied with the speed,UI...wanna see how long can it last on a single charge...
will tell u guys later after few days of abusing it...hehehe
Um.. i'm wondering, it was said in the review that it doesn't have a stylus, but here in the philippines, it has a stylus (it is inserted at the back cover like 5800) although 5230 hasn't released the phone on the nokia stores themselves (nokia phil are always late on their phones)..so which one really is it or the 5230 here are fake :| or has a different version ?
Niks_Mumbai, 29 Dec 2009 Can someone tell me whether MfE (Mail for exchange) is pre-installed in 5230?Is it available with or without 3G???

Can someone tell me whether MfE (Mail for exchange) is pre-installed in 5230?
At Ghatkopar (Mumbai), the NPD confirmed today that 5230 will be available tomorrow morning.
kushal, 29 Dec 2009hey it does not have a secondary camera so how can we use it for 3G3G is a data transfer technology that helps to download data faster.
i.e. if you use your phone for internet browsing over your network provider (and not Wi-Fi) the speed of data download will increase considerably provided :
1. Your network provider is 3G compliant
2. Your phone supports 3G
3. You have 3G activated on your mobile no.
The speeds of 3G are in the range of 384 kbps to 10 Mbps. But the speed you'll get will be determined by your network provider.
Another advantage of 3G is that the speed is high enough to support videocall i.e. if the person you want to talk to has the above three requisite and plus he/she has a secondary videocall camera on his/her phone you will be able to talk to them by looking at him/her on your screen and he/she will be able to do the same.
5230 has no video call camera and thus no videocall but you will have faster speed to access the internet provided 5230 has 3G. Check with your retailer before buying.
can anyone pls tell me what is its max gb capacity?
can it really hold 16gb?

majid, 25 Dec 2009hello guys. I have 2 questions,please help me out: 1-which one has better touch sensivity?sa... moreIve used the samsung's star and I must say that they have the same touch response, but one thing difference that makes me one sided in favor of nokia 5230 is the screen resolution, the s5230 star has 240x400 with 256,000 colors, 3 inches in height, while the nokia 5230 has 360x640, 16,000,000 colors with 3.2 inches in height. imagine the big difference between the two? the 16M color depth of nokia 5230 has a really big difference in samsung star's only 256k colors.
