Nokia has announced the availability of Nokia 5230 Nuron in USA through T-Mobile 3G.
The phone comes with great features like 3.2” inch touchscreen, pre-loaded Ovi Maps that offers free turn-by-turn navigation.In fact, Nokia Nuron is the first carrier-supported phone to be released with pre-loaded with free Ovi maps.
Review: Of course, like many of the recent phones from Nokia, this one also is modeled after Nokia 5800.The differences are , no Wi-Fi and just a 2 Megapixel camera in case of Nuron.No inclusion of these features mean a heavy price drop for Nokia Nuron, priced at $180.The 3G phone is worth a buy for it’s affordable price with 3G, touchscreen, A-GPS etc.
