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.
I don't see its CPU speed & type for this model but guess should be the same as their bros.
Sorry. Meant to say 5330xm is the one that might have been cancelled, not 5530xm.
There are so many xpressmusic touchscreen phones.
I honestly dont know why they bothered with 5230 when 5800xm and 5530 already exist. Theres even a 5800 navigation edition.
If thats not enough, 5900xm shall most likely be announced next week.
Why doesnt nokia make an s40 xpressmusic phone and give it features like the 6700 classic? Im sure it would sell nicely like the famous 5310xm. Its been quite a while since they released an s40 music phone and the latest one thats due to be released (5530) has been removed from all the nokia websites (did it get cancelled?)
uhm when this will be out in the philippines. its cost ranges from 130 euros to 150 euros. it's cheap. don't complain with the 2 mp bcoz it's still good not that bad! even with no wifi! who the hell are you all! like this phone. it'll be out in the last qtr of 2009. it's screen is bigger than 5530 juz lyk 5800. hope it'll be out soon.
I can understand if nokia didn't want to put wifi. but the bizzare combination of 2M & video @30fps.. WTH? I think nokia better put 1.3MP or VGA camera on this phone if the price could reduced drastically. See.. some will complaint, to put 3.15mp will make the phone expensive..
So I say 2MP is useless, so nokia can change to 1 or 1.3mp I don't care but the price should also go down as it is should go up if they put 3.15 or 5mp on this. Agreed?
Incredible!!!We always complaine when phone does not have a flash and they still make those kind of phones.Thats just wrong!I love u nokia but u r really starting to make me angry.
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2009Stupid.... What's the point in having 3G and NO WiFi!... I want BOTH.then you should buy 5800 instead
I don`t know why nokia don`t like to be different ,always try to be like it`s before. that`s sounds awfullllllllllllllllllllll??????
The wait is over now 4 d people who r waiting 4 an affordable touch phone frm Nokia. It has all d feature which justify its price. Its going to be huge hit. But no need of 3g in it coz it doesnt hv secondary camera. Also in india 3g price is so high that dis feature goin 2 b useless .
very god budget touch screen phone from nokia (aikon)
thanks to nokia.
People always complain, if you want both WiFi-3G and a better camera this isn't the phone for you. Don't be greed and expend more money cause you won't find any phone in the market with all those things at this price point. This is a budget touchscreen smartphone which covers the basic and is well priced for what it offers. Period
Some of you guys are cheap as hell...wifi is good and all when you are at home on the computer or in a coffee shop, but it has so many limitations, the biggest for me being the fact that it drains the battery very fast. When you use a mobile phone, the point is to have mobility! If that can't penetrate your ... skulls, simply go for the 5530 or the 5800. Nokia thought about all you guys. As for the part about gps, it is very important. Having 3g and unlimited internet i can use google maps (which has more detailed maps where i live) and get a decent lead no my position. Try doing that over wifi! Besides, hot spots are not always available and might have passwords protecting access to them. What then? For the time being, the 5800 has the upper hand with an auto-focus camera and tv-out. I couldn't care less about wifi. My laptop has that... Oh! And pair that with my phone and i have internet almost everywhere in my country...:)
