Nokia 3250


Despite a few niggling design flaws, the 3250 is a great multimedia smart phone with a truly unique design.

The Nokia 3250 has a stylish yet functional twisting design that rotates up to 270 degrees. We also liked its large display and external music controls. Features include a 2-megapixel camera, a video recorder, a music player, a Micro SD card slot, a...

The Nokia 3250's navigation joystick isn't easily accessible when the phone is swiveled into camera mode, making it difficult to browse through the camera's options. The Micro SD card slot is located in a tiny inconvenient spot

The Nokia 3250


Is it us, or does Nokia's new twisty-style 3250 musicphone look more like something we'd see out of Korean cellphone maker like Pantech or LG? Not a ton of confirmed details yet, but we do know that Nokia's hitting us with another musicphone this week...

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.

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.
