Sometimes leaks can really ruin the surprise of a newly-announced phone. Take, for example, the Nokia 5230 Nuron
, the upcoming availability of which was just officially announced by T-Mobile and Nokia. Well, it was already clear that this affordable touchscreen smartphone is coming to T-Mobile users, as we had first seen an internal document
, and then some leaked official photos
with the device, wearing the T-Mobile logo. So, where's the fun element in today's annoucnement? Ask the tipsters we say! OK, jokes aside, the Nokia 5230 Nuron will certainly be able to entertain customers, as it is a Symbian S60 smartphone, meaning you'll be able to install some decent apps from Ovi Store, use free walk and drive navigation with Ovi Maps, and enjoy your favorite music the way you want, thanks to the 3.5mm jack. The Nuron also features a 3.2
-inch resistive display with a resolution of 360x640 pixels and a 2MP camera.
We don't have a firm release date yet, but T-Mobile says it's going to come out sometime in the following weeks at a price of $69.99
with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate. So, how cool is that, T-Mo users?
