Nokia 5250 budget music phone launches

A touchscreen music phone from Nokia, with the Nokia 5250 unlikely to break the bank, even if you go contract-free.

Music is the headline act here, with a music player on the home screen and tracks able to be downloaded from Ovi Music or your own collection. There’s 51MB of memory on board, which isn't going to cover much of your collection, but the microSD slot can bump it to 16GB - enough space for 4000 songs.

Other features include an FM radio. a free copy of Guitar Hero 5 Mobile, easy access to Facebook, MySpace and other social networks, multiple email account access and a battery life of up to 18 days in standby or up to seven hours talktime. If you stick to music, expect around 24 hours of playback.

Finishing things off is the Symbian^1 operating system, GSM/EDGE connectivity, a 2.8-inch TFT screen and a 2-megapixel camera. 115 Euros is the price, expect to see it for sale in the coming weeks.
