Nokia announces the 5250, a new Symbian^1 device
Interesting that Nokia today announced another new piece of hardware, the Nokia 5250. This is a Symbian^1 (aka S60 5th Edition) device that looks to be a rather low cost device for those who want a touchscreen device. It only supports the EDGE data network and has a 2.8 inch display so it is nothing that anyone here reading Nokia Experts will likely want. However, there are millions of people who only have EDGE connectivity so this may be the perfect device for them.
The good thing about seeing these types of continuing hardware announcements before Nokia World is that we should hopefully see some major news there. I know we will see the N8, but am hoping to see Nokia reveal their next flagship device (maybe the N9) since so many people still have a bad taste from the N97 that could have been so good.
Anyways, the Nokia 5250 has a 2.8 inch 640×360 display, 2 megapixel camera, microSD card slot, Ovi Music support, FM radio, and more and comes in at €115 in the 4th quarter.
