Phone Preview: Nokia 5700 XpressMusic

March 30, 2007 in Nokia Phone News

Today’s newly announced Nokia phone is none other than the Nokia 5700, or in other words, what you would get if you mixed the Nokia 5200 with the Nokia 3250 phones. It’s like a mutt.

This new version of the 3250 twister phone uses the same concept: the bottom of the phone contains the keypad on one side, and dedicated music/camera keys on the other. This piece can swivel around depending on which of the 4 modes you’re trying to activate (phone, camera, music, and video call mode). So if you wanted to open up the camera really quickly all you’d have to do is flick the wrist 90 degrees and voila. The screen also doubles as a viewfinder.

All in all, it’s a pretty unique design concept.

The Nokia 5700 phone takes that design and adds some nice features to boot – 3G, a dedicated audio chip, expandable memory, a better music player than the standard crap S60 one, 2 megapixel camera + video calling, and Symbian.

Of course, this much tech comes at a price: and the price here is 350 Euros, which is about $466 USD. The 5700 will be available sometime in the second quarter of 2007.
