Nokia 5530 XpressMusic: Another Touchscreen phone for the masses


Written on 6/15/2009 11:21:00 AM by poison_ivy

If the Cookie is to LG, the Star is to Samsung, now, the 5530 is to Nokia. The common factor amongst the three? All of them are touchscreen phones, and all of them is targeted at the mass market.

The Nokia 5530 is not a follow up to the Nokia 5800 but rather, the former is more of the latter's little brother. Sporting a 2.9 inch touchscreen which runs Symbian S60 5th edition, there's not much on the device. There's no 3G/HSDPA but what separates the Nokia 5530 over the Star and Cookie is that it has WiFi.

Although the Nokia 5530 is not the cheapest amongst the bunch, word has it that the retail price for the 5530 when it launches is around £170 - £190, I guess the added WiFi is reason enough for the higher price. Also no GPS, what the 5530 does have is a 3.5mm headset jack, FM Radio, Bluetooth with A2DP, and a 3.2 megapixel camera.

I know, I know, £170 - £190 is hardly mass market price but if you're a Nokia fanatic, this will be the cheapest touchscreen phone you'll ever get on Nokia's touchscreen line-up.
