Nokia 5230 would not be a phone that would prove to be a milestone for nokia.Phones like LG COOKIE and Samsung star are cheaper than Nokia 5230,but have great features like 3.2 MEGAPIXEL camera with Autofocus,smileshot.Secondly nokia touch interface is very irritating on the other hand Samsung touch interface with WIDGETS is one of the best.so i think nokia should try for another phone,as this would be useless
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2009waste of money. not even xpress music? no wifi, no secondary camera, only 2MP camera. better b... moreyes but if you buy 5530 you don't have GPS and 3G, what's more you have to pay some 50euro more,
it's a good step from Nokia, I think they noticed the importance of low-budget mobiles on the market & are doing what is needed to conquer it ...:)
Wow! Economical touch screen phone for those who want touch screen phones like ME! I guess price not more than 10000. Thank you Nokia.
waste of money. not even xpress music? no wifi, no secondary camera, only 2MP camera. better buy 5530 at least u have wifi, 3.2 MP cam and xpress music just add a few pounds..
It has the price of a Nokia 3310 and better specs than original iphone. Great battery and a good selection of colors. It's going to be huge!
what i like about this phone is that it has the same home screen as the 5530 , and the screen, battery is like the 5800 , but poor nokia take a look at the back cover it sucks big time it would be nice if it has the same cover as the one in 5800 , and also 2mp camera us fine , the 5800 is not much of a shooter either, but please nokia add some flash on it dualLED maybe.
Nokia needs to add :
1. Back cover same as the ones found on the nokia 5800xm.
2. Add some Dual LED flash.
If nokia will add that on the final product that would be nice and many would like that.
But samsung star has 256k Colours and also have poor interface.This is a nice set but WiFi is missing.
I think nokia is doing a forward but yet step way back in time, why are the phones so thick and huge, well big then if you must ? :-) everytime it looks nice then you see the depth, urgghhh.
No Wi-Fi, shame, but Nokia World is coming, Nokia probably will make good surprizes, we will see, actually the Sony Ericsson X2 will be announced next week too! Hmm, interesting! Actually I am a SE fan!
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2009now 5230 has 5530 homescreen so now i dont think 5800 will get it anymore :Dthat's just BAD logic!
Vanja, 25 Aug 2009Wi-fi missed, too bad.wud there hav been any difference between this n THE 5800 if they had added wi-fi??..
this is just a low copy of 5800...with 5530 software...2mpx camera ...no w-lan....they wanna make touch screen more populare and available to all people...have the same cpu like n97(434 mhz).
good phone for childrens
this phone is a piece of crad, a touchscreen E-Series would have been better, I love . . . .
This 5230 copied the model of Samsung S5230 Star, their price also in the same range.
