For the 'young and sociable'

Reducing security risks from open source software

Nokia has launched its anticipated XpressMusic handset line, rolling out three similarly styled handsets, including a revival of its 3250 twist phone.

The XpressMusic line-up also comprises the 5200 and 5300, both slider phones of the same design. All three are aimed at "young and sociable" consumers, the Finnish phone giant said. All three sport 3.5mm earphone-jack sockets to allow phone owners to use any earphones or external speakers. The handsets also have dedicated music playback keys.

The 5300 comes with a 1.3 megapixel camera and can take Micro SD cards for music storage. Tracks are transferred from a PC via a USB 2.0 port. Over-the-air downloads are supported too.

Nokia said it expects the 5300 to retail for around €250 ($318/£168) before taxes and network subsidies. The 5200 - a lesser spec'd version of the 5300 - should cost €200 ($254/£135). The 3250 will be priced at around €400 ($508/£269), Nokia said. ®
