Finnish company Nokia is once again back on the world stage with a new handset, the 5630 XpressMusic smartphone. We do not yet know when it would be launched in India, though.
This trendy N-gage compatible phone is the slimmest off all N-Gage devices from Nokia so far. It offers support for all the N-Gage games released. The Nokia 5630 XpressMusic is only 12 mm thin, and is specifically targeted at music lovers with a capacity to store up to 3000 songs on the 4GB microSD memory card that is available with the handset. The XpressMusic 5630 supports external memory cards up to 16 GB.
You also get stereo bluetooth and the 3.5mm headphones. There is a Say and Play feature, which allows you to control your music playlist by speaking the name of the artist or the song out aloud.
The Nokia 5630 XpressMusic phone is well-specified otherwise – it has 3G facility, HSDPA and HSUPA for ultra-fast uploads, a 3.2 megapixel camera (with dual-LED flash and 4x zoom) for good-quality photos, and video recording, both of which can be uploaded and shared online via Flickr and Share on Ovi), Wi-Fi and Nokia’s latest S60 interface.
The Nokia 5630 XprssMusic phone has a more user-friendly Home screen. You can scroll through icons for up to 20 contacts and interact with them directly from the home screen. The only drawback of the phone is that it does not give you a GPS.
The Nokia 5630 XpressMusic will go on sale in selected countries in the second quarter of 2009 for around 199 Euros. When it finally comes to India, that would mean the price would be around Rs 20,000 /-
