Nokia 5235 Comes With Music

 Nokia 5235 Comes with Music Available now
13th December 2009

The Nokia 5235 Comes With Music is a low cost touchscreen smartphone with a large display, and 12 or 18 months of free music downloads from Nokia's Comes With Music service.

The handset might look familiar, and that's because the hardware on the 5235 is identical to the 5230, and it is also closely related to the 5800, 5530 and X6 touchscreen phones.

As with the 5230, the Nokia 5235 comes with a 3.2" 640 x 360 pixel touchscreen display, microSD expandable memory, Bluetooth, 3.5G support, a 2 megapixel camera, FM radio, multimedia player and a 3.5mm audio connector. There's a big 1320 mAh battery too which can give up to 5 hours talktime on 3G.

There's no WiFi support on the 5235, but it does support HSDPA downloads of up to 3.6 Mbps. If you want WiFi, then our recommendation is to go for the 5800 instead.

We mentioned the 2 megapixel camera, which is the same unit as found on the 5230. Really, it's pretty poor when it comes to stills photographs, but it can capture video at up to 640 x 480 pixels at 30 frames per second which is rather good, and certainly good enough for uploading to YouTube.

The Nokia 5235 works with Facebook, MySpace, Ovi and YouTube, and because this is an S60 smartphone then there are a load of applications available for it. The large screen is ideal for web browsing, and it's remarkable to find a display of this quality in a handset that's so cheap.

We keep talking about price - so how much is the Nokia 5235? Nokia say that the handset should retail for around €145 before tax and subsidy, around the same as the current 5230. The 5235 offers very good value for money even before you take into account the music downloads, so if you take advantage of Comes With Music then this looks like a real bargain.

It is perhaps worth noting that the 5235 doesn't come with a memory card in the standard sales package, but it does include a wired headset. Some of Nokia's data sheets say that it includes a USB cable, whereas others say that it doesn't.. so if you need a USB cable, check before ordering.

Nokia say that the 5235 Comes With Music should be available during Q1 2010 in White or Black colour schemes, each with an ice-blue tinted chrome rim.
