Re: New Nokia 5730 XpressMusic with Slide Out Qwerty Keyboard

5730 XpressMusic, so nice to finally meet you! This admittedly odd looking Nokia has been brought to our attention courtesy of Russia's own Mobile-Review, and while we're still trying to decide whether or not the QWERTY slide-out keyboard is a turn off or totally awesome (with its dot matrix-styled font), we figured it prudent to pass along the information, anyway. Said mobile sports a 2-inch QVGA screen, backlit keys, a 1,000mAh battery good for 4.5 hours of yappin', EDGE data, inbuilt GPS, 128MB of RAM, a microSD card slot, USB / Bluetooth and Symbian S60 running the show. We're told to expect it out in European markets this April for €220 ($289), though worldwide availability remains a mystery. Have a look in the read link for eleventy billion more images and a poorly translated preview.

In the apparatus used 2-inch display with a resolution of QVGA (240h320 points 31h42 mm). The display shows up to 16 million colors (TFT), the picture is bright, well visible in various conditions. In general, the screen leaves a pleasant impression on the apparatus set good. The screen displays up to 8 lines of text and 3 service lines. In some modes may show up to 14 lines of text. Font good read.

Block function keys large, medium-sized buttons are soft clicking. Nice keyboard, in all senses. Backlight keys white, not very bright, at the time. The navigation key has a built-sensor. Overall comfort keyboard can be assessed as above average.




You use lithium-ion battery BL-4U, it has a capacity of 1000 mAh. According to the manufacturer, the phone is able to work out until 4.55 hours of talktime, up to 270 hours in standby mode. Playback of music - up to 26 hours, video recording at maximum capacity - up to 150 minutes, playing a video - up to 180 minutes.

As to the screen, i can understand being in love with a capacitive screen as your favorite phone has one, and it reacts "differently" than resistive touchscreens.
