The mobile device maker rolled out the Nokia 5530 XpressMusic smartphone. The 5530 has a touchscreen interface that is designed to allow users to interact with social networks, watch homemade videos or content uploaded to YouTube and stay in touch with friends through a rotating picture carousel of contacts.
The Nokia XpressMusic smartphone has a 2.9-inch screen and a 4 GB memory card to store downloaded content. However, the Nokia 5530 XpressMusic device doesn't feature 3G connectivity. Instead, the mobile device functions on the GSM/EDGE network, meaning the device won't have the speed of some of the other smartphones on the market.
The Nokia 5530 XpressMusic will be available in the third quarter of this year and start at the unsubsidized price of about $275, Nokia said in a statement.
The new Nokia E72 is an upgrade to the E71. The new smartphone is aimed at integrating the work and personal life of users, with new features including a refreshed optical navigation ball and better integration of desktop e-mail. The camera on the mobile device also gets an upgrade to 5 megapixels.
In addition to adding new hardware to the smartphone, Nokia also included service upgrades that the company hopes will make the phone more appealing to customers.
The E72 is equipped with an A-GPS (assisted GPS) and integrated maps. Noise cancellation was improved on this iteration of the phone, making audio crisper. Finally, Nokia included Quickoffice for business users, which provides enables users to view, edit and create Microsoft Office 2007 documents, with free upgrades in the future.
The Nokia E72 is expected to be released later this fall and will start around $485 before subsidies.
Finally, the debut included a new flip phone from Nokia, the 3710 Fold. The flip phone is designed to be feature-rich but at affordable price. Images taken on the 3.2 megapixel camera can be stored on an optional micro SD card. Like the Nokia E72, the 3710 Fold has internal GPS capabilities that can be turned on or off by users.
The Nokia 3710 Fold will be available in the third quarter and start without subsidies at about $190.
