Nokia's XpressMusic 5300 and 5200 announced, 3250 gets makeover

 

If the hoard of N-series Nokias raining down from Espoo yesterday was a bit too much on say, the fuddy-duddy side of the generational slope, then check these new XpressMusic cellphones kiddies. Well "new" only if you missed the 5300 and 5200 peeped...

Nobody can accuse Nokia of a lack of innovation. Their Nokia 3250 music phone incorporates a twisting, almost Rubix Cube-like design which houses the ...

MP3 functionality is well implemented, 512MB card included

Irritating thumbstick, Quite slow

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.

Product Specifications

Do a triple take with the Nokia 3250 phone. One twist of the wrist and it becomes a music player with memory expandable up to 2 GB for up to 1,500 songs. Rip tracks from your CDs using Nokia Audio Manager and then transfer them from your PC to your phone. Use the stereo headphones provided or plug your own headphones into the 3.5 mm jack in the headset. Twist again and it's a 2-megapixel camera. Snap in landscape or portrait mode and get up close with the 4x zoom. Store your photos and videos on your phone and then upload them to your mobile blog. Twist back and it's a smartphone. Take calls on five continents, browse over EDGE, and get creative with all the imaging and music software packed inside. Whichever way you twist it, there's a lot happening inside the Nokia 3250 phone.
