Nokia rolls 5730, 5330, 5030 music phones

Nokia logoNokia this morning used an in-house music event to launch three separate media phones, including a pair of firsts. The 5730 XpressMusic is the first media-specific phone from the phone maker to get a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and uses this to bring an added messaging component; like an increasing number of Nokia phones, the 5730 has a newer home screen that shows up to 20 favorite contacts as well as gives quicker access to media playback and apps like Facebook. It also has dedicated music keys usable regardless of whether the slider is open.

The 5730 further carries a 3.2-megapixel camera, GPS and Wi-Fi. It should be available during the summer for 280 Euros ($356) before carrier discounts; the phone supports GSM and EDGE calling in North America, but its HSPA-borne 3G currently omits the 850MHz band and means the phone will likely only be found directly through Nokia in the continent without added 3G support.

At the mid-range, the 5330 XpressMusic is a more traditional number pad slider but with a unique "sliced" top. It too gets the dedicated side keys, 3.2-megapixel camera and GPS but drops Wi-Fi and full HSPA. The phone will sell in the summer for 160 Euros ($203) unsubsidized and is notable for supporting both 850MHz GSM/EDGE as well as 1,700MHz 3G, making the phone a likely candidate for T-Mobile USA.

The entry 5030 is nicknamed the XpressRadio for its role as the first FM-centered Nokia device; unlike most other cellphones, it has an FM antenna built-in and so can use its speakers alone to play the radio without having to plug in a headset. It also has dedicated channel tuning keys and enough battery life to run for an entire day of music. Few other features are available on the phone, though this should drop the price to just 40 Euros ($51) for the 5030's spring release. It will come in both international and US-friendly GSM versions.
