Nokia has just announced a new low-cost mobile phone Nokia 5228 which is based on symbian S60 5th Edition operating system. This phone looks like Nokia 5800 and Nokia 5230 and I don’t see much difference in the design of these phones.
If you compare the specifications of 5230 and 5228, Nokia 5228 does not have GPS. Nokia 5228 is 3.2″ touch screen phone with 2 megapixel camera, 3.5mm audio jack and 33 hours of music playback.
I don’t understand what is the purpose of Nokia in releasing this S60 5th edition phone while theare already available. It is to be noted Nokia is already working on Symbian^4, and this low-priced phone based on old version of symbian indicates only one thing that Nokia wants to increase its market share with low priced phones.
Specifications of Nokia 5228:
This phone will be released in July 2010 at retail price of Eur 139 (incl. of Taxes).
