So, it's that time of the month again to find out what mobile phones will be released this month. Of course, not all these reports are accurate so try to check your wireless carrier or favorite mobile phone store to see if they do carry these phones.

Samsung S5320

The Samsung S5320 is another touchscreen phone from Samsung though it's a little bit low end from its other Touch Wiz counterparts. There's no 3G but it does have accelerometer, microSD slot, Bluetooth with A2DP, 3.15 megapixel camera with smile detection, and Stereo FM radio. Info from Slashphone

HTC Magic

The HTC Magic will come exclusively to Vodafone this April. I don't know the exact date but knowing Vodafone and the delayed release of the Samsung S8300 Tocco Ultra, it would probably be at the end of April. The HTC Magic is the full Touchscreen version of the G1. There are a lot more hardware buttons on its front compared with other touchscreen phones. It runs the Android OS, of course is HSDPA 900 and 2100 compatible, 3.2 inch capacitive touchscreen, accelerometer, microSD slot, 512MB internal memory, 128MB RAM, 528MHz Qualcomm processor, WiFi, Bluetooth w/ A2DP, 3.15 megapixel camera with autofocus, and GPS.

HTC Touch Diamond2

Well, according to Expansys, the HTC Touch Diamond2 will be available starting April 17th. Not really that excited about the Diamond2 considering there's not much going for it that my Omnia doesn't have. But for those who are not into Samsung and don't have the Diamond yet, you might consider trying the HTC Touch Diamond2 out.

Nokia 5730

The Nokia 5730 is the last phone that Nokia has recently announced. This is the first XpressMusic phone that features a slide-out QWERTY keypad. It's a Quadband GSM phone and Triband 3G phone as well. Nokia is probably release Triband 3G phones to avoid 3G issues that came up like what happened to their Nokia 5800 NAM. the Nokia 5730 has a 2.4 inch screen, 3.5mm audio jack, microSD card slot, 100MB internal storage, WiFi, Bluetooth with A2DP, 3 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus and LED flash, Stereo FM radio, and runs on Symbian S60. Release date from Engadget but only for Europe, no worldwide release date yet.

Palm Pre

And probably, though we won't have it here in Europe, the much awaited Palm Pre, according to Boy Genius Report, Sprint will finally release the Palm Pre in April 30th. Though the report came from a beta tester, it's still believable. Check out my Palm Pre preview to see what's all the buzz about.
