After its debut in Singapore last month, the Nokia 5530 Xpressmusic is now available for purchase. The Nokia 5530 Xpressmusic is a smaller and cheaper version of the Nokia 5800.
It has a 2.9-inch widescreen display, 3.2-megapixel camera with LED flash and a 4GB memory card. But the Nokia 5530 Xpressmusic has no 3G. It only has a GSM / EDGE capability. It has a WiFi though, which kind of makes up for its lack of connectivity using the 3G technology.
My cousin recently bought the Nokia 5310 and interestingly when you buy it, the pack includes a speaker system wherein you can connect the mobile phone to it so you can listen more clearly to your music. Basically, the Nokia 5530 Xpressmusic is like all other music-centered phones by Nokia. For some, it acts more like an MP3 player than an actual phone as it features rival that of some of the best MP3 players out there.
The Nokia 5530 Xpressmusic will retail for $278, roughly higher than more ordinary music players, but remember that it is a phone too.
