Nokia's 5530 XpressMusic: touchscreen based

Connectivity is limited to GSM/Edge, but there's on-board Wi-Fi for speedier downloads when you're in range of an access point.

Like its predecessor, the 5530 has a UI based around a carousel of up to 20 of the user's chums, each icon providing a menu of comms options, from email, SMS, IM and social networks. You may even care to use it to make a voice call.

Friends to the fore

Photos, music and movies are accessed through a pop-up "Media Bar" UI.

Nokia said that, come Q3, the 5530 will retail for €199 (£169/$276) less carrier subsidy but with sales tax on top of that. ®
