Nokia announces 'N97 junior'

Nokia targets touchscreen buyers

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

If the mobile phone’s your primary instrument for music, photos, video and social networking then you probably own an iPhone. But if you haven’t upgraded yet, Nokia hopes to sway you with its latest touchscreen talker, the 5230.

Nokia's N5230 connects into Ovi and supports app downloads

The handset looks much like the N97 - albeit without the slideout thumbpad - and is based around the premise of its swift connections to Nokia's Ovi, where insatiable appetites for downloadable apps, music and games can be cured.

Nokia Maps – a rival to Google Maps – can also be accessed through the 5230, the handset firm promised.

Sadly, Nokia hasn’t released many more of the N5230’s specifications – well, it needs to hold something back for Nokia World next week – but has claimed that the handset delivers 33 hours of music playback on a single charge of the phone's battery.

Headphones connect into the 5230 through a 3.5mm jack, Nokia revealed, while Facebook, MySpace and all those lesser social networking sites can be accessed through a dedicated UI.

The rainbow-hued range features a 2Mp camera

A specially designed contacts bar also provides you with thumbnail images of up to 20 close friends – handy if you often forget what your chums look like.

Nokia’s 5230 will be available during Q4, priced at €149 (£129/$212) unsubsidised. ®
