Nokia 5630 XpressMusic announced: an S60 music-centric candybar
Nokia’s XpressMusic family of handsets has just got bigger, with the addition of 5630 XpressMusic – a new candybar that we’ll probably see in the flesh during MWC 2009.
The 5630 is ultra-thin (12 millimeters) and has a design that clearly says “hey, I’m an XpressMusic phone”. This being said, you’ll probably be surprised to find out that it runs on Symbian S60, thus being a perfectly legal smartphone.
Apart from offering an “excellent audio quality” and dedicated music keys, the 5630 also comes with various shortcuts on the homescreen: N-Gage, photos, radio and Web.
Other known features are:
- GSM/EDGE and HSDPA/HSUPA connectivity
- A QVGA display
- Nokia’s “Say and Play” feature – for voice control over the music player
- A 3.5mm headset jack
- 3.2MP camera with LED flash
- 4GB MicroSD card included in the package (the phone supports up to 16GB)
Nokia 5630 XpressMusic will be commercially available starting the second half of 2009, for the retail price of 199 Euros ($256), before taxes and subsidies. It will have a Comes With Music edition too, but its price is not known for the moment.
