Ignoring the 7700 and 7710, here’s the third and latest touch screen phone from Nokia; the 5530 Xpress Music.
It may look familiar to you – because it has surfaced once as a possibly successor to the 5800. But then it was deemed as a poor Chinese knock-off of the 5800 instead of actually being a new device.
- Slim Design
- Stainless Steel Finish
- Full Touch Screen, 640×360 (2.9″) – is it still resistive or has Nokia made the move to capacitive?
- Similar contacts bar of the 5800, but now horizontally scrollable with up to 20 contacts.
- 3.2MP camera + LED Flash
- 3.5mm audio jack
- Hot Swap Micro SD (4GB included)
- Bluetooth, WiFi, EDGE (what about 3G?)
- 199 Euros – 3rd Quarter 2009
Here’s a live demo video of the 5530 by Nokia Conversation with the 5800
Although a very short demo, it looks pretty snappy.
This is a demo of the 5530 homescreen.
I like this darker version better (hopefully it’s not the same one in different lighting). I’m not too keen on the silver/black/white combination on the 5530 (it looks slightly like a 5800 gone wrong – the rectangular black plastic bluntly bordered in silver). Maybe it’ll grow on me.
