Nokia 5730 XpressMusic - side-sliding qwerty for music lovers

Running S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2, Nokia has launched the 5730 XpressMusic, with E75-style side-sliding qwerty keyboard. There's a 3.2 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and GPS, plus the “Say and Play” feature first introduced in the Nokia 5320. It has the same customised home screen, to directly access contacts and Ovi services, as the Nokia 5630. More below.

Read on in the full article.

Nice phone, but if they were giving it a QWERTY, they should have toned the looks down a bit. Some business users might prefer it over the E75, but will be scared by all the red accents.

And - WHEN ARE WE GETTING THAT HOME SCREEN FOR THE 5800?? When, Nokia?

It will also be available in black/grey, so that's good for business-users. I really don't see the advantage off a E75 anymore.

This looks like a nice succesor too my E71. A shame it doesn't have a more decent camera, but then again, it's not an N-series, and rather cheap.

As long as its the same 3.2mp sensor they've used in previous phones, and they put on the right software to back it up, the camera will be just fine.

@Delta: you are right. I am not saying that it won't be GOOD for biz users, I am just saying they might not get over their prejudice over carrying an XpressMusic branded device into their fancy offices. Thats where E75 comes in I guess. Clever move by Nokia IMHO.

Hello, why does Nokia use S60 3rd Edition instead of 5h Edition? I know 5th Edition is for touchscreen, but didn't Nokia say, that 5th Edition can also drive non-touch-phones? So they have to maintain only one Operationsystem. AFAIK 5th Edition can be used for this phones because its UI is scalable and have all softkey-buttons and so on.

Is "say und play" also aviable on Nokia N85?

Thanks, best regard, sorry for my poor english.

They must have increased the screen to 3.2" like 5800 which I would prefer....

Would be nice to get this particular home screen with a mixture of contacts bar and calendar/shortcuts in a future firmware update for the 5800XM! Can't be that hard to implement surely?!

This is a pretty experimental device really, I don't think there has ever been a QWERTY phone aimed at music-lovers.

I don't think this is aimed at business users at all, IMHO it's meant more for ordinary users who want to do a lot of texting, e-mailing and other kinds of messaging.

Incidentally, tucked away on the same press release is a non-Symbian phone with an interesting feature:

Nokia 5030

Nokia 5030 is the company's first phone with an internal FM radio antenna, which eliminates the need for a headset or external speakers.


Finally a phone radio which doesn't need an external aerial!

Probably because 5th Edition wasn't ready when they began developing this phone.

The changeover from 2nd Edition to 3rd Edition was gradual too, they released a few more 2nd Edition devices after first the 3rd Edition devices (for example the N72 was 2nd Edition).

Unregistered, you expected a Xenon in an XpressMusic device? REALLY?!

Why would I buy E75 over this?

METAL!!!

Did Nokia learn anything from plastic double sliders (written on my N96)?
Well obviously no because then they'd know that plastic sliders get weak.
