In recent times devices from manufacturers like Samsung (with their Corby range) and other small companies have been doing really well in the low-mid tier market. Nokia has bled heavily there as they did not cash in on the touch boom that came around the 8-10 thousand Rupee price bracket. They have woken up recently with the Cseries and devices like the 5233 and today we will be looking at the 5233 specifically.
The Nokia 5233 is device targeted towards the semi tech savvy population that wants to get on the touch bandwagon but wants not much from their devices apart from music and some web browsing along with the usual calling and text message functionality.
The 5233 looks to fill that gap. It has a 3.2″ touch screen, stereo speakers that are not as good as the 5800 (but not bad either), a 3.5mm jack for audio out and a 2 Megapixel camera. It lacks a GPS, sticks to EDGE and gives WiFi the boot. All in all, a no frills device, at a very affordable price if touch is your thing.
We’ll we looking at the device in much more detail soon, but for now I will leave you with a few pictures.
