by on11 March 2009


Two, maybe three new models

According to AllAboutPhones, a Dutch mobile phone site, Nokia is set to launch up to three new XpressMusic handsets later today. The models are the 5730, 5330 and the 5030, although the last one might not get the XpressMusic branding.

The most interesting of the three is the 5730 which features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard much akin to the one found on the Nokia E75. The 5730 is also said to have built in WiFi, a GPS receiver, a 3.2 Megapixel camera and a front facing camera for video calls, as this is a 3G handsets. It also features something called "Say and Play" and a new "Xpress Home Screen" which should be a customizable home screen similar to what can be found on some of Nokia's E-series devices.

The 5330 is a slider and although not a lot of details have been provided, it should feature a 3.5mm audio jack, up to 24h battery life and MySpace support. Finally the 5030 is a really basic budget model with a built in FM radio that doesn't need a headset to be plugged in to work. It also has a rather large speaker built in to the back. Again, the 5030 should have up to 24h battery life.

The 5730 is said to retail for €280 plus VAT, the 5330 should be going for €160, again plus VAT and finally the 5030 will sell for a mere €40 plus VAT.
