nokia launched 5530 and 5230 in india read the news
I doubt that the 5530 does have tv out even though I have seen it listed in some specs. Here is the reason:
On the 5800 when you plug in headphones, the phone gives you a list of options of what output you would like "Headphones, Line Out, Tv Out..."
I have a 5530 and when I plugin headphones I don't get the TV out option (only "Headphones, Line Out, Music stand").
Looks like the 5800 might be getting kinetic scrolling! :
From the article on the nokia n97 mini:
On the positive side the Nokia N97 Mini replaces the plastic battery cover with a much nicer metal one and has more solid build quality. There's also kinetic scrolling throughout the interface, much like the newly released Nokia 5530 XpressMusic and the latest firmware of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic.
This is indeed brilliant news if true :D
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970If you don't have a problem with touchscreens, you want a big screen, and your country has 3G, go for the 5800.
If your country doesn't have 3G, you might consider the 5530, but the 5800 is still better.
You don't mind a smaller screen, and prefer a physical keyboard and alphanumeric keypad, go for the 5730.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970If you have a lower budget then go for 5530 but if you are willing to spend 1-2k more after that then definitely 5800. 5800 is an older phone and all it's bugs have been sorted out. 5530 though having a much better design and homescreen is a new phone and will have bugs and system crashes as someone reported and will probably take some time to be properly upgraded
Anil, 25 Aug 2009Bro..I am well aware of the fact that its 5530 forum....In this forum we discuss matter which ... moreI'm not trying to be anything. You called the jack at the top a mistake, but that's just your opinion. There are those (like me) who prefer it at the top.
But if you think it makes you look smarter by telling me to stop being smart, I'd have to disagree.
And, like it says at the top, "Post your opinion about Nokia 5530 XpressMusic". I don't see 5230 written up there. Saying you don't like it is fine, but you're posting in the wrong place.
Anil, 25 Aug 2009Hey guyzz...I have checked the new 5230 touch...It is not a music phone,no wifi,same old desig... moreLol. The phone's great for it's price, just as the 5530 is also good for what it costs.
If you want to have the features of both phones you go for the 5800, which is more expensive, but is also better.
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2009The jack is fine at the top. I can put my phone on my pocket, and have the jack straight up so... moreBro..I am well aware of the fact that its 5530 forum....In this forum we discuss matter which are related to 5530 also...as someone mention about 5230 I have given my feedback to them...
by the way u can mention your name so that people here should know who the active participant here..I am doing research on 5530 from the day this forum starts..........
Don't try to be so smart.....
Anil, 25 Aug 2009Did anyone noticed the design is ditto...
when there is lot of criticism to nokia for giving ... moreThe jack is fine at the top. I can put my phone on my pocket, and have the jack straight up so my headphone's wire doesn't get all bent, instead of having to put the phone upside down like a retard.
And this is the 5530 page you're on, not the 5230. You want to talk about it, go talk about it on it's own page.
Did anyone noticed the design is ditto...
when there is lot of criticism to nokia for giving 3.5 mm jack at top on 5800 they have modified this mistake by changing it to bottom in 5530...
Now again same mistake in 5230.....no good music,no wifi, no video calls(whats the value of 3g here),just 2mp camera,
black & yellow combination looks like copied from new samsung phone....
Nokia got crazzy......I heard someone told morning nokia wants to test s60v5, may be this will be a good oppurtunity for them........
nokia very cheap of plastic body and same design!!
no one can samsung!!!cheerss
Hey guyzz...I have checked the new 5230 touch...It is not a music phone,no wifi,same old design....as someone pointed out better battery only coz of 3g..
Definitely 5530 will be much better than this phone...
One more thing did u guyzz notice the outer design is same replica of 5800. They have not invested on design, I think they have many spare hardware of 5800 which they wanted to use use, hence coming up with this dump phone........
Atleast they should have done some changes. I strongluy beleive just to use the spare hardware of 5800 they are coming up with this phone....
5530 way ahead of of this if u compare the features...
now 5230 has 5530 homescreen so now i dont think 5800 will get it anymore :D
Just now I called the Nokia Care. They told me to wait for 1 more week. According to them, the launch will be on 31st of this month.
