Nokia 5250: Attractive, Affordable Symbian Handset Leaks
by Ernest Doku
As Symbian edges ever closer to mid-range mobile mainstay, we're seeing the platform pop up in ever more enticing handsets. The latest to break cover was from the hallowed halls of Nokia themselves, with the Nokia 5250 proudly (yet briefly) posing as a competition prize, quickly snapped for later perusal.
Seemingly running Symbian S60, the Nokia 5250 will be another addition to the selection of handsets currently on offer for the lucrative market, where price is a major determining factor.
A paucity of fancy smartphone features is predicted - a given at a lower price point - but its appealing looks and touchscreen functionality still seem poised to give some of the feature phone incumbents a run for their money...the curved frame echoing the recent Sony Ericsson Vivaz - another S60 device.
With word that the Finnish manufacturer were planning to release a smartphone for only €100, the Nokia 5250 seems a likely, and potentially lucrative, candidate.
More concrete details as we get them.
