Nokia 5220, 5320 Expand XpressMusic Candybar Line


The two latest phones to be added to Nokia’s collection certainly look like siblings, as they bear much the same design and a very similar feature set. The Nokia 5220 and the Nokia 5320 are both bar-style handsets with a distinctly musical focus. This only makes sense, seeing how they belong to the XpressMusic line of phones.

The Nokia 5220 XpressMusic (left) runs on the S40 OS and comes with a 2 megapixel camera, FM radio, A2DP stereo Bluetooth, 3.5mm headphone jack, and microSDHC memory card support. A single charge is supposed to provide up to 24 hours of musical playback. Two versions are planned, both of which are tri-band; one gets 850/1800/1900, whereas the other gets 900/1800/1900. Pricing is said to be around $250.

The Nokia 5320 XpressMusic (right) is a step up from the other model, tossing in quad-band GSM to go with its dual-band 3G/HSDPA. Again, two versions will be made available, one with 850/2100 for 3G and the other with 900/2100 for 3G. The rest of the specs are pretty much the same as the 5220, except the 5320 gets powered by S60. The Nokia 5320 XpressMusic will retail for about $400.
