The Nokia 5330 XpressMusic is a new slider phone with dedicated music keys and suppport for Comes With Music -- and you can make it light up all fancy like
Nokia has launched the Nokia 5330 XpressMusic phone, an 'edgy' music phone with customisable lighting controls and support for the Comes With Music service.
It has what's described by Nokia as an 'edgy top-sliced form factor', which means it's a slider. There are dedicated touch-sensitive music keys on the side and a 70mm (2.4-inch) screen. You get a 3.5mm jack -- are you listening, Sony Ericsson? -- so you can plug in your own headphones rather than mess about with proprietary jacks.
The phone offers easy access to the forthcoming Ovi app store, as well as social-networking sites via home-screen shortcuts and widgets. You can also access Nokia Maps and make use of A-GPS.
A 2GB microSD card is bundled in the box, which Nokia claims will hold up to 3,000 songs. The 5330 supports up to 16GB cards.
The Nokia 5330 XpressMusic will be available in the second quarter of this year, with prices varying. Click through our photos for the different colour combinations available.
