Nokia 5500 Sport Music Edition

 Nokia 5500 Sport Music Edition Available now
5th October 2006

About a year ago, Nokia discovered a trick - add some more memory and accessories into an existing smartphone, stick the words "Music Edition" on the end and change the colour of the phone.. and it's like having a product release all over again. They started with the Nokia 6630 Music Edition which warmed over a past-its-prime phone, and this has continued recently with "Music Editions" of the N70, N73 and N91 handsets - again, the N70 Music Edition giving a leg up to a rather tired old design.

So - this is handset has the rather unwieldy title of "Nokia 5500 Sport Music Edition", and as before it's basically a slight upgrade to the Nokia 5500 Sport, with 512Mb of memory bundled in the pack and a carrying strap thing that allows you to strap the Nokia 5500 Sport Music Edition to yourself if you're feeling energetic enough.

In fact, the Nokia 5500 Sport didn't really need an upgrade - it's a neat little S60 smartphone with a 2 megapixel camera, a high-density 208x208 pixel display and all the neat features from the original Nokia 5500 Sport. The 5500 is one of our favourite phones from 2006, but this version doesn't really add too much to what is already a very good handset. Still, if you're in the market for buying a Nokia 5500, this version will be worth hunting down.

Nokia say that the 5500 Sport Music Edition is already available in certain outlets for an unsubsidised price of 350.
