Nokia has just added three new models to their XpressMusic phone collection: the 5730, 5330 and the 5030.


The 5730 XpressMusic phone is the first QWERTY-equipped phone in the music-centric line from the Finnish company. It also comes with N-Gage keys which make it ideal for gaming as well. It runs on the S60 software and features a 3.2-megapixel camera, WiFi, HSDPA and GPS apart from the slide-out full QWERTY keypad. This one’s scheduled to be released in Q3 for €280 or $357 in US dollars.

The 5330 XpressMusic phone, meanwhile, is a slider that boasts illumination effects in addition to its 26-hour battery performance and 3.5mm headphone jack. It also comes with easy access to social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, and of course we can’t forget Nokia’s own online portal, Ovi. The 5330 XpressMusic is expected to be released in Q3 as well for €160 ($204).

Last, but not the least, the 5070 XpressRadio is the most affordable of the bunch. It’s slated to be released earlier in Q2 for just €40 ($51) and is the first Nokia phone to come with a built-in radio antenna thus eliminating the need to hook up any headphones just to access a radio frequency. It also comes with a set of loudspeakers integrated into its rear so sharing your tunes won’t be a problem either.

Roll out dates are set for the European market but we're yet to hear when they'll be released globally. However, this early on, it's clear that the 5730 XpressMusic phone is truly the stand out in this trio, but Nokia pretty much made sure that there's one particular model for every market segment.
