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.

    I’m so happy with my new unlocked cell phones! This has an unbelievably fast processor, great feel and easy to text on. I used to own a unlocked htc phones, but I’m so much happier with my brand new unlocked nokia phones. This Nokia Nuron 5230 is so much better for my business and pulls my email in so much faster. And I really couldn’t be happier with it since it is an unlocked tmobile phones and it’s a unlocked 3g phones I can take it overseas. My family loves my new phone and can’t get enough of the games. I’m going to purchase another one for my son for his birthday from Definitely would recommend this phone.
