Nokia's Third Touch Screen Phone! The New Nokia 5530 Xpress Music!

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.

Deceptively, it looks the the face of the 5530 is flat and smooth, but it's not the case as you can see from the live demo video, the bezel (-_-) and screen are not all flush with each other.
