The Nokia 5230 is a great new model in Nokia Music Phone range, designed to be ideal as both a personal media player and a phone. The best thing about the Nokia 5230 is the screen, which is both large at 3.2 inches, and also high-resolution. This makes it great for watching movies and video clips on, as well as browsing through your music collection. There is a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack, so you can carry on using your favourite headphones, and also an FM radio.
In addition to its media playing capabilities the Nokia 5230 makes a pretty good smartphone, with its 2 megapixel camera that can record video at 30 fps, and a GPS sensor that allows it to work with Ovi Maps. The 5230 has a HSDPA 3G connection for fast downloading of new music and media, and the built in storage can be expanded by up to 16Gb with the addition of a MicroSD card.
The fast connection means a great online browsing experience, making the Nokia 5230 ideal for keeping up to date with your email and Facebook contacts. The 5230 comes with the new Ovi Maps application, which together with the built-in GPS sensor, provide you with voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation, right out of the box, for free. The 5230 can also access the new Ovi store, where you can download additional applications and games for your phone.
