Nokia 5250, as seen on Ovi Store

ESPOO, Finland – Nokia set rumours flying a couple of weeks ago when pictures of an as-yet unreleased device were inadvertently uploaded to the Ovi Store. Well, now it’s officially launched – the Nokia 5250 is a touchscreen, music-centric device aimed anyone seeking a modern, multipurpose mobile that also offers great value for money. Read on for pictures and specs.

The 5250 runs the Symbian^1 operating system and offers GSM/EDGE communications over four bands and GPRS for data. It has a 2.8-inch TFT screen with a 16:9 apect ratio and a resolution of 640 x 360 pixels. On the back, there’s a 2-megapixel camera, with Ovi Share installed to let you upload your snaps to the Web. Eminently pocketable, the device measures 104mm x 49mm x 14mm.

Before taxes and operator subsidies, the Nokia 5250 will cost just €115 (USD $145 = RM490++) and is expected to ship in the fourth quarter.
