Nokia Nuron review by Engadget

By: t-marco March 22nd, 2010

Our friends from engadget made a review of the new semi-smart phone from Nokia, the Nuron or Nokia 5230 Xpress Music.  The Nuron is the first touch screen phone for T-Mobile.  This is a mid entry touch screen phone that supports 3G (HSDPA) bands, aGPS  (compatible with Ovi Maps 3.0), 2MP camera, and more.

    Finally a price! $70.00 with a contract extension. I don't think I was going to be leaving T-Mobile any time in the next two years so this about a $130 subsidy. The engadget remarks about the phone being $270 if you leave early and keep the device are a worse case scenario. If you compare it to the Nexus One penalty it is hardly worth mentioning.

    Engadget panned the 5800, which I own and love. They panned this phone as well – I'm looking forward to enjoying this one too based on their non-recommendation. They still refer to the S60 interface as quirky. Maybe because I've been using S60 for all but my first two phones, also both Nokia with S40, it seems like a sensible interface. It certainly is a better interface than the Motorola PK2 (V635 for example) phones that co-existed with the earlier S60 and S40 releases.

    This is a reply to all the people that say the Nokia 5230-Nuron would only be a deal if it were free. So to all the whiners, crybabies, and Nokia haters here you go. It can be had for FREE with new activation at http://www.newegg.com (newegg) It looks like this is the route I will be taking since T-mobile wont work with me (price wise) on a handset upgrade.

    I’ve done some research. Radioshack nor Walmart will allow you to keep your old plan. You must switch to one of T-mobiles latest plan. If I’m wrong please tell me how to keep my promo 1500 plan for $39 a month and do a handset upgrade. I have called both corporate offices and they both tell me the same. As a mater of fact. None of the online sites (eg. Amazon, Newegg and others) will allow you to keep your old plan when doing a handset upgrade.

    you need to pay full price(179.00). Then just slip in your sim card. Or just upgrade and for 10.00 more a month you get unlimited minutes.

    It is also known as Nokia” Nuron”. I find it quite appealing with good sound quality, ,great camera, excellent net surfing, terrific touch screen, marvelous look and moreover a heavy body, big screen, simply it rocks. Go For IT.

    I do not even understand how I finished up right here, however I believed this

    put up was once great. I do not realize who you might be but definitely you’re going to a well-known blogger for those who are not already. Cheers!
