Nokia outs 5730, 5330 & 5030 XpressMusic
Nokia today announced a trio of XpressMusic phones — the Nokia 5730, 5330 and the 5030 XpressMusic, the first two being offered as Comes With Music compatible devices. That means 12 to 18 months of unlimited free music downloads.
The Nokia 5730 XpressMusic (picture above, left) is 3G/HSDPA and WiFi capable, has a 2.4″ screen with a 3.2MP Carl Zeiss optics. It also has a full qwerty keyboard that slides out from the left side, similar to the Nokia E75. Internal storage is just 100MB but it supports up to 16GB with microSD.
The Nokia 5330 XpressMusic (middle) is a regular slider phone with no HSDPA or WiFi support (there’s WCDMA 384kbps though) and comes with the regular 3.2MP camera. Comes with a 2Gb microSD but can be upgraded to 16GB. uses the Series 40 interface compared the the S60 on the Nokia 5730.
The Nokia 5030 (picture above, right) is an entry-level XpressMusic handset with nothing much to boast but an FM radio and an excellent loudspeaker audio quality.
Unfortunately, the Philippines is not yet on the list of “Comes With Music” service so even if you got one of these XpressMusic handsets, you don’t get the unlimited download subscription. Maybe later this year.
