If it's solely intended for music, then why is it priced like a flagship allarounder?
Gsm Marena, could We have the review of this handset?
Thank You so much!
seems to be a good handset but i think nokia needs to step up with a 10 or 12Mp camera and it is must do the business when u printin and stuff...people say buy a digital camera but why shud if the phone sposd to be the real deal
It's not coming yet to my country, but what its the price would be if in my area now N97 mini = usd 550, 5530 is usd 229 and 5230 is usd 219 (initial price)? Is this more expensive than N97 mini?
Mobilewaster, 10 Jan 2010Besides its 32 GB internal storage, this is the same phone with 5230 (Nokia or Samsung)dont forget the camera and capacitative screen
This phone is solely intended for music. This is not a multimedia powerhouse. That explains why it doesn't come equipped with a powerful processor. You should only buy this phone if you're after for music only. Don't expect this phone to be a web and media workhorse.
agree to the third comment saying that nokia is copying bbery or iphone. BUT ! look at its features its way more better thn iphone. the cam is 5mp wid flash whereas iphone cam is only 2mp wid no flash and has poor output quality.
no doubt e 71 which u say was a copy of bberry is not that good. but it still had its market and lots of ppl do prefer it, rather thn going for a separate data package and stuff.
Look for nokia Vasco specification in mobile-review's russian forums (nokia's rumours section).12mp camera,720p V.recording,amoled 3.5"screen(640x360only),multitouch,Hdmi output,256MB ram and 680mhz, probably OMAP3 processor.Probably for not much more than X6.I'll wait for this one and skip all this X6/N97mini misery
Why? do Nokia always release a mobile were the Softwares not sorted out,an you have to keep waiting for the first update till its sorted out,with the X6 being expensive i am sure loads will wait a couple of months before taking a look at the X6,i had the N86 an the software was not up to date on the first release an had 3 N86 in 7 days as the phone kept freezing because of the software,it might be sorted now on the N86 but will wait about 3 months before even buying the X6
Besides its 32 GB internal storage, this is the same phone with 5230 (Nokia or Samsung)
Another Symbian phone by Nokia without the hardware it deserves.
Nokia should finally give some good processor to s60 5th edition. Anyone in Nokia listening?

most of their latest smartphones are similar to their competitor's existing, nothing new from nokia, nothing revolutionary. apple iphone and blackberry are unique, revolutionary and muscled themselves to the top. didnt say excuse me to nokia.LOL
I’m still waiting for higher end, monoblok Symbian device with Cortex-A8, 256 MB of ram and 8mp+ camera. X6 with almost 3 year old hardware is nothing to be excited about. It’s Arm11 architecture @ 4xxMhz is obsolete (for mid end or better devices) and even at 600mhz wouldn’t be able to provide great user experience. Moreover, lack of proper hardware acceleration makes it even worse, as it won’t be future proof at all. Remember, Nokia is milking this poor little old Arm11 cow as long as it can, but in 2-3 month all those recent N97/N97mini/X6 buyers will regret their purchases, as the new generation of Symbian based TS phones from Nokia will come to the market. At least I hope so:)
