Nokia has announced its latest Music Edition handset - this time a version of the 5500 Sport the company launched in May this year. The new model features a revised colour scheme and bundles a 512MB Micro SD card for song storage. Nokia has also put "a fitness carrying strap, bicycle holder and sports headset" in the box. The phone can read out text messages. It'll do the same with pedometer and work-out progress information. The tri-band GSM/GPRS device has even got a liquid and dirt-resistant casing with rubber grips. Available now, the 5500 Sport Music Edition costs around €350 ($444/£236) unsubsidised. ®
