The Nokia 5530 XpressMusic offers unrivalled qualities

The Nokia 5530 offers excellent functionality and is built on the success that Nokia have had with previous handsets. Musical entertainment is the main focal point of the phone and many of its features are based around this function. The phone is a
smart phone with a PDA style emphasis. It operates with the ARM 11 434 MHz processor and makes use of the Symbian OS v9.4 operating system.

The phone comes with a 2.9 inch TFT resistive touch screen which accurately displays 16 million colours and operates at a pixel resolution of 360 x 640 pixels. This offers excellent colour reproduction and ensures images are viewed in their best
possible light. The phone also provides an accelerometer sensor and a proximity sensor whilst handwriting recognition is also included.

As a means of taking photos, the Nokia 5530 has a built in camera, which is 3.15 mega pixels and operates at a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. Autofocus and an
LED flash come as standard on the phone and ensure quality of image as well as illumination. An additional element is the photo editor, which provides the ability to edit images whilst on the move. The ability to record and playback video at VGA
quality and 30 frames per second is also provided with this handset.

As mentioned previously the phone incorporates an MP3/MP4 player. This enables the user to listen to audio and watch video files. All major audio and video formats can be played on this unit, which makes it versatile in many ways. Local and national
radio broadcasts are available by virtue of the stereo FM radio with RDS which is a useful addition to the entertainment element of this phone.

Connectivity is provided by GPRS, EDGE, HSCSD and Wi-Fi. The ability to connect to hot spots provides internet access whilst out and about. Blue tooth and microUSB ensures file sharing and synchronisation are freely available on this handset.

The Nokia 5530 XpressMusic is a PDA smart phone. It is also an entertainment centre. The phone incorporates a large number of features that on their own are useful, however when combined make for a formidable handset. The stylish and comfortable
design elements of the phone are complimented by its functionality. It is a phone of substance.
