So, we meet again the Nokia
5250. This time there are better photos, actual official specs and
price too. The Nokia 5250 will cost a bit over a 100 euro - it's not
the coveted 100 euro smartphone but it comes pretty close.
The Nokia 5250
has a rather modest specs sheet - it runs Symbian^1 (a.k.a. the regular
Symbian S60 5th edition) on a 2.8" TFT screen with nHD resolution and
relies on quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE for data connectivity.
The Nokia 5250 sports a 2MP
camera on the back of its 104 x 49 x 14 mm body. The battery is quoted
at 18 days of standby, 7 hours of talk time and 24 hours of music
There's no 3G or GPS connectivity (like the Nokia 5230 has) and no Wi-Fi (like the Nokia 5530 has). It's simply a more compact version of Nokia 5233.
Honestly, that limits its smartphone potential quite a bit and the
Nokia 5250 will probably have to fight quite a bunch of touch feature
phones for a place under the sun but it will surely go mass market,
that's for sure.
The Nokia 5250 will cost 115
euro (145 US dollars) before taxes and subsidies and it's expected to
start selling in Q4 this year. Oh, and it will come with Guitar Hero 5
Mobile for what it's worth.
