Impressive Cell but one factor disappointed me
NO WIFI :S
WIFI is a must option for a touch screen phone.
atleast for me.
I think the design of this phone is just going to make the Nokia 5800 look cheap! I mean, I already feel offended, as a 5800 owner, that Nokia have decided to use what is nearly the same design for a low-end phone, thereby eroding the class of the 5800! Shame on you, Nokia RnD, couldn't you spend some more time and money making some other design?
Nokia Vs Samsung, 26 Aug 2009All competition here
Nokia and samsung are in competition in touch screen phones, samsung ... moreya man u r right its all compition but nokia is surly more prefirable than samsung so i think that nokya is goin to winn.
Grim, 27 Aug 2009Yeah, but my point was they keep releasing touchscreen xpressmusic phones. Just the other day ... moreI'm not sure they'l release 5330. I think they took it off their website....BTW i have to agree with you. I too would love to see an XM based on 6700 or even on 6303.
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2009they did release an S40 xpressmusic phn recently...
5130XM was released around 5 months ago... moreYeah, but my point was they keep releasing touchscreen xpressmusic phones. Just the other day the 5530xm entered the market and now they announce two more touchscreen phones (5230xm and 5800 NE).
5130xm is already half a year old and thats as far as they've gone with s40 xpressmusic phones. We are still waiting to see if 5330xm enters the market.
yes may be its screen not good b/c its price is very very cheep & they give 2 Mp camera & video 30 Fps & 1st time on touchscreen mobile Xpress on covers & big 3.2 inches scree & lot of Features . what u all think ??
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2009i brought this mobile today screen is not good sure you did buy it today :) Maybe you meant 5530, not 5230. This one is going to be launched in 4th Quarter.
is it true that it has no secondary cam then what will we do with 3g how will anyone make video calls
Grim, 26 Aug 2009There are so many xpressmusic touchscreen phones.
I honestly dont know why they bothered with... morethey did release an S40 xpressmusic phn recently...
5130XM was released around 5 months ago and it has the best audio quality ever on a nokia phone...better than 5800 audio quality.
Anyone knows the specifications of the Processor and the RAM on the 5230? Hope its the same as the 5530, and that theres no catch,.
vote for 5230 10 on 10 . & it have 434 MHz & ARM 11
see full specification on nokia forums
its is very great mobile then nokia 5530
All competition here
Nokia and samsung are in competition in touch screen phones, samsung star S5230 Vs Nokia 5230 and samsung Star S5600 vs Nokia 5530XM, Nokia 6700 Vs Samsung S6700.
Both are good mobiles.
Lets see who's going to win it..,
This mobile is announced in india, it will be available soon for 10000 Rupees which is almost 150 Euros.
Finally India is going to get a mobile before the rest of the world even knows about it. (even if it is a downgraded version of 5800).
It is a great entry level phone with touch screen and it has all the right mixture of features in it.
The camera being only 2MP is not aproblem for me as I don't go around taking photos usingit. Istead I always rely on my digicam. The 30fps feature is good for taking short videos on the go.
Overall I would give this phone a 9/10 for its competitive pricing a features.
