Nokia today launched the Nokia 5250, a touchscreen, music-centric phone. The Nokia 5250 has a 2 megapixel camera, games and applications from Ovi store, a 2.8" TFT touch screen, Bluetooth and runs Symbian 1 OS. Here is more info on this new Nokia music phone:
The device comes with a music player on the home screen and tracks can be downloaded from Ovi Music or your own collection. There's 51MB of memory on board, but audiophiles can expand this to up to 16GB with a microSD memory card ? enough space for 4000 songs. The device also offers an FM radio. Topping off its musical credentials, the 5250 comes with a free copy of the acclaimed Guitar Hero 5 Mobile: this is a phone that invites you to rock out while you?re on the move. The Nokia 5250 will ship with the all-you-can-eat music offering, Ovi Music Unlimited, in selected territories.
This is a highly sociable phone. Also on the home screen, you?ll find your favourite contacts and there?s easy access to Facebook, MySpace and the rest. You can also log-in to multiple email accounts such as Ovi Mail, Gmail and Yahoo! Mail, as well as instant messenger accounts from all the usual suspects. Extra applications can, of course, be added using the Ovi Store.
Battery life is also excellent. The device will last up to 18 days in standby or up to seven hours talktime. If you stick to music, then it can play for 24 hours without stopping.
