Nokia XpressMusic Phones

Following yesterday's news of updated N-series phones, Nokia today announced three new cellphones that carry the company's newfound emphasis on music into more affordable territory. The 5300 XpressMusic (pictured) is a minimalist slider design with basic music controls along the display edge; because main action buttons are also on the same surface, an owner can pause or skip music even while browsing the web or sending text messages. The 5300 also adds support for up to a 2GB microSD card to store songs and has a 1.3 megapixel camera to round out its media functions. Nokia plans to release the 5300 for 250 Euros ($317) without a contract during its initial launch, with other areas to follow later. An American release is likely thanks to quad-band GSM network support.

Also announced were two sibling phones that share the same music-oriented philosophy. The 5200 is similar to the 5300 but uses only a VGA camera and a tri-band GSM radio, while the 3250 XpressMusic is an enhanced version of an earlier Nokia model with a unique rotating control section that swaps between music and phone controls. The new version doubles the memory support to 2GB and matches the style of the new 5000-series handsets. The 5200 and 3250 XpressMusic are set to debut in Europe for 200 and 400 Euros ($254 and $507) respectively. click through for full-size photos of the 5300 and 3250.
