Nokia Launches Its Cheapest 3G Smartphone in India

by on April 13th, 2010 5

Nokia has recently launched the Nuron 5230 in India, which the company claims to be the cheapest 3G smartphone from its stable. The phone is priced at an incredibly low cost of Rs. 3150 in India, despite its host of features.


Now, let’s take a quick look at the features of this phone. The body dimensions are- 4.37 inches tall by 2.03 inches wide by 0.61 inch thick. The Nuron 5230 resembles the Nokia 5800 Express Music phone, and has a white and silver chassis. The 3.2 inch touchscreen offers s resolution of 640 X 360 pixels. The phone also provides an integrated accelerometer and also a proximity sensor.


The phone allows free navigation and search facilities. As is the case with any other smartphone in the market, the Nuron 5230 allows for a number of social marketing sites and YouTube on the home page. The phone supports IMAP, POP and SMTP email protocols. There is a 2 MP camera with a 3X standard zoom. There’s a microSD memory card slot and support up to 16 GB.


The battery life can provide up to 33 hours of music playback, Nokia claims. The phone has integrated video and a music player that supports nearly every  format.

The phone is not without its disadvantages. The smartphone totally misses out on Wi-Fi and document viewer.


That’s an amazing price, £45 GBP for an awful lot of phone. The best you can get a Nokia 5800 for in the UK is about £160. I have a few friends in African countries who would go mad for these at that price.
