About Nokia 5230

The Nokia 5230 is one of Nokia’s XpressMusic range and is big and bright, with excellent music features and decent phone functionality as well.

Brightly coloured edges with a matching central navigational button set in a glossy black case characterise this trendy Nokia handset. The 5230 trimmings come in a range of colours including fiery red and electric blue. The handset also features dedicated MP3 player control keys on the side, a great aspect that helps you make the most of the multimedia functions. The keypad has been designed to be N-Gage game compatible and so some of the number keys are separate while others are joined. Gaming on the 5230 is therefore great fun, and although the keypad does take a little bit to get used to for standard phone controlling, it looks really cool.
