Nokia 5730 XpressMusic gets hands-on treatment


Nokia hasn't officially introduced the 5730 XpressMusic to the world yet, but Russian site has already posted an in-depth hands-on preview of the handset blessed with a side-sliding QWERTY keyboard.

The Finnish phone-maker already has a few QWERTY devices in its line-up, but these are mainly available on the E-series. A pull-out keyboard on a music-centric phone model? That's probably a first.

Some of the impressions mentioned were a glossy front that attracts fingerprints, a spring-loaded QWERTY that slides effortlessly, vibrant display, and generous buttons on the keyboard. Other features on the 2.5G set include dedicated music controls (typical of the XpressMusic range), microSD expansion card slot, micro-USB port, 3.5mm audio jack, 3.2-megapixel camera with LED flash, 2-inch QVGA display, Bluetooth stereo, EDGE and built-in GPS.

Of course, these mean nothing until Nokia decides to come clean with the device. According to, the 5730 XpressMusic will hit stores in April at a modest price of €220 (AU$437). That makes it a likely candidate as a budget S60 QWERTY handset if it eventually makes its way to Australia.
