Nokia 5530 XpressMusic Gets August UK Release

by Ernest Doku

Nokia5530XpressMusic-phone-3 Nokia continues to embrace the concept of touch screen phones to their bosom with the new 5530 XpressMusic  handset, due out on August the 11th as a timed exclusive to the Carphone Warehouse.

The Nokia 5530 XpressMusic is a younger offshoot of the highly successful Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, a handset so popular that it knocked the iPod off the perch of top selling music player in the UK...for a bit.

‘Younger’ does not necessarily mean 'not as good' (Ashlee Simpson being the living embodiment of that fact), as the 5530 XM has a 2.9” touchscreen, is rocking 3.2 megapixel snapper and is equipped with all manner of connectivity including Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.0, but unfortunately stopping short of bringing 3G and GPS to the party this time around.

You will hardly miss it, thanks to the Nokia 5530’s peerless media playback functionality courtesy of stereo speakers, 4GB of space (microSD), a 3.5mm headphone jack for personal rocking and the Nokia touch experience supplied once again by Symbian S60 5th Edition.

Early impressions are pretty favourable on NokNok.tv, who have already done the honours with an unboxing to show off the new stainless steel finish and impressive active widget interface.

At a prepay price of around £130, the Nokia 5530 XpressMusic might be good enough to buck the curse of the difficult second album.
