Nokia announces the "fun and function" 5070

Mobile phones

Nokia has unveiled a new budget handset – the Nokia 5070 – which is aimed very much at “young consumer”. By that, I think they mean it’s a music phone that’s good for texts.

Available in red or blue finish, the 5070, Nokia promises fast messaging – contacts found and messages posted in just a couple of clicks – along with fast voice messaging via Nokia Xpress Audio Messaging. There’s also a camera on-board for picture messaging, but they’re not specific over the pixel count, so we’ll presume it’s not high.

Other features include an integrated FM radio, MP3 player, stereo headset, java games, web browser, MP3 ringtones and a talk time up to 3.5 hours, along with a standby time of up to 12 days.

Expect to see the handset in the coming weeks, priced around 100 Euros.
