In the recently concluded Go Play event of Nokia, among the many other stuff they unveiled, the new line of Xpress Music phones were introduced as well.
The 5310 Xpress Music Phone is probably the slimmest and most affordable Music phone to date while maintaining the many key features that sets this line of phones apart from the rest. Of course, the lower price has its trade off which comes in the form of non-3G capability, but is probably a sacrifice made even more bearable with the other remaining nifty features of this device. It’s got a large 2-inch QVGA display and 2-megapixel camera. It’s also compatible with Windows Media Player 10 and 11 which allows for easy Drag & Drop transfer of files from your PC to your phone.
The Nokia 5610 slider, on the other hand, is a slightly better Xpress Music compared to the 5310 with its 3.2-megapixel camera and larger 2.2-inch display. It also has a secondary camera for video calls and is obviously 3G capable. It also features a Slider button, a first for Nokia, which allows for easy navigation through music files, gallery and the main menu. Expect this one to be a bit more pricey for the added features.
If these are a sign of things to come with Nokia, I can’t wait for next year’s phones.
