Another Xpress Music phone from Nokia – the 5730, with QWERTY keyboard!

Although I’m violently opposed to Comes with Music’s DRM, sometimes nasty things come in nice packages. This is the Nokia 5730 Xpress Music, straight outta Russia. It’s packing an awesome dot-matrix-effect QWERTY keyboard, 2″ screen, 1,000mAh battery, GPS, 128MB of RAM and USB/Bluetooth connectivity.

Interestingly it doesn’t have 3G – just EDGE – so downloading music on the device won’t be fun. It’ll be showing up in European markets this April for €220 (£204). I’m afraid we’ve not got anything more specific on the release date. If you can uninstall the “Comes with Music” software, and don’t need 3G, then this isn’t too bad a phone.

It boasts six HDMI inputs, so you can connect up a load of HD and “almost HD” gear, and two HDMI outputs. There’s also the usual assorted range of other inputs which will be perfect if you’re thinking of upscaling YouTube footage and other assorted ultra-low-res crap video…
