The 5230 has been available for quite a while but it’s pretty new over in the US. Here’s an unboxing of the entry level touch smartphone from Nokia using S60 5th edition, the Nokia 5230 Nuron.

Despite the friendly price tag ($179 retail, $200 unlocked) the 5230 packs several punches in terms of features. It has the classic 5800 family look with its host of ports neatly tidied away from view.

  • 640×360 3.2″ display (its not capacitive as video mentions)
  • 3.5mm jack
  • MicroSD (4GB included)
  • 2MP camera
  • 640 x 352 video at 30FPS
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • Arm 11, 434MHz
  • A-GPS
  • Micro-USB
  • Relatively small at 111 x 51.7 x 14.5/15.5mm


Note, like the standard 5230, the Nuron misses out on WiFi.
