More Details About The Nokia 5250 Emerge

The Nokia 5250 smartphone, which is set to be the company's next sub £70 star, may well turn out to be a major disappointment according to the official manual which is available on Nokia's website.

The phone, which was first leaked a few days ago, now has a PDF document which shows that it will be using the Symbian S60 5th Edition UI OS and carries a resistive touchscreen (you may need a stylus).

Other features that have been confirmed include a 3.5mm audio jack, a microSD slot (up to 16GB), support for Bluetooth, an FM radio, a 2-megapixel camera without flash, compatibility with Microsoft Exchange and Nokia Ovi, a proximity sensor and an onscreen virtual keyboard.

Unfortunately, there's no Wi-Fi, no 3G and more crucially, no GPS, something that even its predecessor, the 5230 had. One might expect the 5250 to come with the same 3.2-inch 640x360 pixels screen as the 5250.

Ultimately, the 5230 could turn up to be the main competitor to the 5250 as you can get the former for as little as £70.
