One of the series of Nokia ExpressMusic – the Nokia 5530, is a cheaper version of Nokia 5800. It has a 2.9 inches touchscreen with 70MB of internal memory and upgradable to 16GB storage via MicroSD (a 4GB card included).





It also has bluetooth 2.0 and WiFi, 3.2 Mp autofocus camera and LED flash features. It comes with a 3.5 headset jack, but no 3G/HSDPA supoprt. This probably the biggest whack off for the 5530. It only has GPRS/EDGE connectivity feature.
