Mobile Review posts Review of Nokia 5730 Xpress Music with Qwerty

Mobile-Review has posted a review of the not yet launched Nokia 5730 Xpress Music Phone which has Qwerty Keypad. The phone is supposed to be a twin of the Nokia E75 and features GPS, Wi-Fi, 3.5 mm jack, 3.2 Mega Pixel Cam with Carl Zeiss Optics. Contrary to what other sites are reporting, the Phone does NOT have a screen size of 2 inches as Eldar Murtazin has posted the following before the start of the review.

Editor’s note. This is not a complete review, but rather our first impressions of this device. In fact, we played around with one of the first prototypes, and this fact must be factored in as far as the phone’s build quality and software department are concerned – many features are still missing, even though we are going to refer to some of them throughout this review. Also, you won’t find any data on the 5730 XpressMusic’s size or display simply because this information is not all that relevant at this moment.

Back Side

The phone comes with a new feature called Say & Play, which allows the user to just say a name of artist, song, album or playlist and the phone will play it. The Screen Size is most likely to be 2.4 inches with QVGA (240 x 320) resolution. The phone also has FM Radio, 3G, 128 MB Ram and 8 GB microSD card bundled. It's rumored to hit the shelves in April with a price tag of around 220 Euros.

Samsung S8300 leaks, 8 Mega Pixel Shooter with Touch Screen

A new 8 Mega Pixel Mobile from Samsung has leaked. This will be the third 8 Mega Pixel shooter from Samsung after the i8510 Innov8 and the M8800 Pixon. The new phone is named S8300 and is a slider. The phone is only 12.8 mm thick and has a large OLED Screen sporting a Wide QVGA resolution of 240 x 400 pixels. Further more the Screen is also a Touch Screen so you can use your finger or stylus to operate the phone. This also makes it the second 8 Mega Pixel Touch Screen Phone of Samsung. It also has Bluetooth 2.1, FM Radio, MicroSD slot, GPS, HSPDA, DivX support, TouchQiz interface and lastly the all important 8 Mega Pixel Cam. As it's a slider from Samsung, build quality will be decent and the slider will also be good as Samsung generally makes great slider phones.

The only things missing in this slider are the Wi-Fi connection and a Xenon Flash, which can be beneficial in Night Shooting. The phone just features a LED Flash. Looking at it from the back, the camera reminds of the Samsung G600 and the Samsung u900 Soul which had a similar setup. It should be officially announced in 2009 (only 2 days are left in 2008 mrgreen) and available by March 2009. We will be surely waiting.

Nokia launches N97, first N-Series with Qwerty

Nokia launched the N 97 multimedia smart touch phone (Nokia just calls it Multimedia Computer mrgreen). The most distinguishing feature of N97 is that it has a physical Qwerty keypad to help in messaging and mailing. Another touted feature is the 35 degree kickstand that helps in watching videos but can be bothersome if you drop the phone.

Looking at the spces, it has a 5 Mega Pixel Camera with Carl Zeiss Optics, 32 GB Flash Storage, a huge 3.5 inch screen with a decent (by HTC Touch HD's standards) resolution of 640 x 360, Wi-fi, GPS, FM Transmitter, 3.5 mm jack and a digital compass too. The styling is different than the N81/N96/N85 clones we saw from Nokia and we welcome that. Apart from the huge storage and the huge screen there's not much in it to differentiate it from it's other N-Series Brothers and Sisters like N85 & N96. The N97 is basically a Qwerty version of Nokia 5800 with double the storage of N96 and having all the features of N85. The N97 also supports widgets on it's home screen. The N97 also has a social feature which Nokia calls "So-Lo" which allows your friends to update their location and status.

Nokia seems to have learnt from it's mistake of N95 and N96 & has equipped the N97 with a 1500 mAh battery which should be adequate for a phone of it's size. The phone comes with a Digital Compass and Nokia Maps 3.0. The N97 is expected to begin shipping in the first half of 2009 at an estimated retail price of EUR 550 before taxes or subsidies. Nokia is definitely impressed to make the N97 it's Flagship of 2009. How much of a fight will it give to Sony Ericcsion Xperia X1 and a possible HTC Touch HD Pro is to be seen.

  • 5 Mega Pixel Auto Focus Camera with Dual LED Flash
