Nokia 5070

 Nokia 5070 Expected Q2 2007
30th March 2007

Let's get straight to the point about the Nokia 5070 - this is a very cheap phone at just €100 / £60 or so before tax and subsidy, and it's a quite attractive handset too.

As you might guess from the bargain price tag, there's not an awful lot going on with the Nokia 5070.. in fact it is almost identical to last year's Nokia 6080 and Nokia 6070 models.. although it is a fair bit cheaper than the badly overpriced 6080.

The Nokia 5070 is a basic but functional device with a 128x160 pixel CSTN display in 65,000 colours, a VGA resolution (0.3 megapixel) digital camera, FM radio (with stereo headphones in the box in most retail packages) and really not much else. The software includes a web browser, email client, MP3 ringtones and some PIM functions. Internal memory is just 16Mb with just 4.3Mb available to the user, but then there's not an awful lot going on under the hood so this shouldn't be a problem.

 Nokia 5070 There's no Bluetooth, no expandable memory and no MP3 player but it's worth remembering that the Nokia 5070 is a very cheap handset. It's quite light too at 88 grams, although the battery life is a little disappointing at just 3.5 hours talktime. The 5070 does support EDGE data, but it's a bit of a moot point in a handset with limited capabilities such as this.

The Nokia 5070 isn't the sort of handset that most Mobile Gazette readers would want for themselves, but it is something that looks quite appealing for the bottom end of the market, and it looks more expensive than it really is.

Yes.. we called the virtually identical Nokia 6080 a tired old relic, and the 5070 is very much more 2003 than 2007.. but then the 5070 shaves €60 off the cost and it delivers a good value for money package.

Nokia say that the 5070 should be available from Q2 2007 in two tri-band GSM variants.
