Nokia 3250

 

Nokia is the most popular company that creates mobile devices. It paved way for the transformation of the communication inductry. With a wide range of mobile devices, announcing different phone models one after another, people of different lifestyles...

With the combination of music, photography and phone function, this is an exceptionally chic and impressive phone. But it is not really recommended as an alternative gadget for digital cameras that can display sharp and bright photos.

Expert Review

 

As a media player and camera, the 3250 is a pretty good device, but its phone functionality leaves a little to be desired thanks to an awkward and slightly sluggish interface.

MP3 functionality is well implemented, 512MB card included

The 3250 is definitely innovative, but is it easy to use?

Nokia 3250 review

 

It twists and turns, and it's finished in piano black. But has Nokia's MP3 smartphone got what it takes to rival Sony Ericsson's rocking Walkman models?

Put this up against the W800i and it’s a tough call: if you want to show off, pick the 3250 for its twisty-turny powers. Is size your priority? Plump for the tried-and-tested Sony Ericsson.
