Nokia announces 3 new XpressMusic phones: 5730, 5030, 5330


Nokia hasn’t had the best luck with the XpressMusic line so far; the 5610 XpressMusic had bad screens, and the 5800 XpressMusic had no shortage of problems at launch. Ignoring the fact that the XpressMusic name is apparently cursed, Nokia has announced 3 more “Comes With Music“-focused handsets.

Nokia 5730:

This is the one we’re most excited about – we loves us some QWERTY keyboards.

  • Full Qwerty Keyboard
  • NGage support
  • 280 Euros ($357) before taxes and subsidies, Q3 of 2009

Nokia 5030:

  • FM Radio
  • Available in Graphite or Red
  • 1 day of audio playback, or 10 hours of talk time
  • “Powerful” loudspeaker
  • “Less than 40 euros” ($51 USD) before taxes and subsidies, Q2 of 2009

Nokia 5330:

  • 3.5mm jack
  • 26 hours of playback
  • 160 euros ($205 USD), Q3 of 2009

Unfortunately, US availability hasn’t been announced for any of these phones. It might be a tough sell unless they coax a carrier into a deep subsidy, but we wouldn’t mind seeing the 5730 hit US shores – that keyboard looks nice and comfortable.
