Nokia 5310 XpressMusic - Future phone

Nokia 5310 XpressMusic

Nokia 5310 XpressMusic

30 August 2007
Written by Mike Meers

The XpressMusic line of handsets from Nokia has been revived with the introduction of the 5310 in London yesterday. Designed for portable multimedia, the handset has a dedicated audio chip, up to 18 hours of music playback, stereo loudspeaker, microSD memory card support, and an integrated digital music player. Other features worth mentioning include the 2mpx digital camera, 16.7 million colour TFT LCD display, and quad-band 2G network connectivity.

The 5310 is a highly upgraded version of the 5300 XpressMusic. The handset has slimmed down to 103.8 x 44.7 x 9.9mm, and weighs just 70.2grams with the battery. The sides of the handset are finished with aluminium, housing dedicated diamond-cut music keys. The 5310 will come in two colour variations – one is black, the other has yet to be announced.

MP3, MP4, AAC, eAAC, and WMA music files can be played back by the 5310’s music player. The handset has a dedicated audio chip that provides high quality audio playback from the integrated loudspeaker or the included stereo headset. The music player itself supports album art and playback of several common video formats. A real-time equaliser is also built in to the application.

Files can be stored on the 30MB of user-accessible internal memory, or an external microSD card. Most countries will find a 2GB card in the sales package, but some may have less. The microSD port on the handset supports cards up to 4GB.

The 5310’s 2” TFT LCD is capable of displaying up to 16.7 million colours (true colour), within 240 x 320 pixels. The display acts as the viewfinder for the 2mpx digital camera that can capture images up to 1600 x 1200 pixels. Video capture is also supported and the camera has 4x digital zoom.

International roaming across the globe is supported as the 5310 supports GSM 850, 900, 1800, and 1900MHz networks. The EDGE and GPRS protocols can be used for packet data connectivity, and HSCSD is provided for dial-up networking with a compatible computer. For local connectivity, Nokia have included Bluetooth 2.0 (with A2DP for stereo audio) and USB version 2.0. A data-cable and CD-rom with the Nokia PC Suite is included in the sales pack.

An 860mAh lithium-ion battery pack provides the 5310 XpressMusic with up to 300 hours of standby time and up to 18 hours of music playback. The average performance for talk-time is 5.4 hours, although the type of network you are connected to will affect the actual battery life. Charging time with the included battery charger is 150 minutes.

The 5310 XpressMusic is expected to start shipping in the fourth quarter of this year.
