Better photo of Nokia 5250 found, details still scarce

10 August, 2010

We caught a brief glimpse of the Nokia 5250 back in July and now it's back. New details are scarce but at least we're getting a better look at the phone. The design is freshened up, but the screen seems to be smaller than the one on the 5230.

The Nokia 5250 is a Symbian S60 device and that's no surprise - this is one of affordable smartphones from Nokia, maybe even the 100 euro smartphone they've been promising (that is 100 euro without a contract, but before taxes).

There seems to be quite a bit of bezel around the screen though - which leads us to suspect that it's a 2.9" unit like the screen on the Nokia 5530 XpressMusic, rather than a 3.2" unit like the one on the Nokia 5230 (which is closer as a model number).

As for the resolution, nHD is a pretty safe bet - even the Nokia N8 which runs Symbian^3 has an nHD screen (as do all the other touch Nokias). But whether the Nokia 5250 will feature 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS is quite uncertain and the model number isn't much help (it's closer to the 2G/GPS wielding 5230, but the screen shows that this isn't to a good indication of features).

Anyway, fingers crossed that the Nokia 5250 is the promised 100 euro (130 US dollars) smartphone - it could be the end of feature phones.
