In what is perhaps the most affordable and basic phone among the three new releases of Nokia, the Nokia 5030 is the first phone to carry an internal FM radio antenna. The one touch FM radio and channel selection keys on the side of the device ensure the product lives up to its XpressRadio name.
Placed sideways on the table, the Nokia 5030 doubles as a portable FM radio and is ideal for emerging markets, where people rely on a radio as their main source of entertainment and news. The Nokia 5030 has up to a day of listening time and 10 hours of talk time, which comes to life with the powerful loudspeaker, and is available in two colors – graphite and red.
The Nokia 5030 is expected to begin shipping in the second quarter of 2009 with an estimated retail price of less than 40 EUR, before taxes or subsidies.
