Nokia 5250 Music Phone Launched

Nokia has finally announced new 5250, a music-centric handset about which we had reported earlier this month. The all new Nokia 5250 is said to be music-centric and is a step higher version of the existing 5230/5235 handset. This handset will come with Ovi Music Unlimited in select regions.

Nokia 5250 has 2.8-inch TFT touchscreen with 16:9 aspect ratio and will support 640x360 pixel resolution. Loaded with Symbian^1 (S60v5 Touch), this multimedia centric phone will come with Guitar Hero 5 Mobile for free. Though its internal memory is mere 51MB, one can add up to 16GB via microSD memory cards. Also, Nokia has added FM radio for the avid radio listeners.

This 5230 phone successor will sport a 2 megapixel camera and has Ovi Share pre-installed to share photos directly to the web. With support for quad-band GSM/EDGE networks and GPRS for data, users can obviously access Ovi Store to install different apps and games.

Nokia promises to ship the new 5250 music-centric handset in the fourth quarter of this year for 115 EURO (Rs. 6,800 approx), albeit without taxes. Expect this music phone to cost around Rs. 7,500 when it reaches India. You can expect to see this phone in Black, White, Purple and Blue colors.
