Video: Hands on with the 5530 XpressMusic

| July 25, 2009 | Reply

The 5530 XpressMusic is Nokia’s latest touch screen for the masses. It’s pretty much the same as the super successful 5800 except notably:

  • +Faster Processor
  • +Software Tweaks
  • -Smaller Screen
  • -No GPS


The 5530 is also the first Nokia to demonstrate kinetic scrolling within the contacts phonebook. It looks just as smooth as it is on the application, “Gravity”, which by far best exploits this feature.

Hopefully in future firmwares, Nokia will see fit to bring consistency to making kinetic scrolling, not just in the contacts application of the 5800 and N97, but to the entire UI wherever scrolling is applicable.

Another thing I’d like to see brought to the N97 is better UI effects. Even the older 5800 has better theme effects than the N97 – why didn’t the more expensive flagship get that?
