Gallery Face-Off: Nokia 5530 XpressMusic vs 5800 vs iPod Touch

The Nokia 5530 XpressMusic is one of the smallest, more affordable, less feature-packed, touchscreen phone to come from Nokia lately. Yet, it’s still a convenient and efficient device to own and use, and despite its lack of GPS and 3G, it still packs WiFi, a great screen, a 4Mb memory card, a 3.5mm headset plug, a nice 2.9″ touchscreen, and is compatible with the Ovi Store so you can fill it up with as many free or paid applications as you want.

If you’re wondering about how tiny the Nokia 5530 XpressMusic is, here is a comparison with its old brother, the chubby Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, as well as the slim but very wide Apple iPod Touch.

Nokia X6 Photo Gallery: 5800XM Comparison & BH-505 Mixing

Nokia’s recently announced X6 music device might have failed to gain a lot of attention at Nokia World 2009, due to the spectacular success of the Nokia N900, and its limited availability with Comes With Music service, but it still is a great solution for those who want a nice capactive touchscreen, S60 5th Edition, and 32GBs of built-in memory. The X6 also has a GPS receiver, a good 5MP camera, a nice interactive homescreen with contacts, applications, email and calendar showing up, kinetic scrolling widely implemented, HSDPA internet speeds…

Here are some comparison pictures next to its oldest sibling, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, showing that the X6 is a bit longer but the same width, and much thinner. Both devices have the same connectors and keys at the same locations in all sides, except for the X6 not having an external microSDHC port due to its already integrated 32GB memory. The X6 also doesn’t come with any stylus, since its capacitive touchscreen doesn’t function with styluses, but only with finger touches.

Sony Ericsson Satio VS Nokia N97, 5800 XpressMusic And X6

Yes, you read that post title right. We outdid ourselves, by a long shot on this article. Not only did we land a prototype of the Sony Ericsson Satio and show it to you in intricate details, but we were also able to pit it head to head against its concurrence, with Nokia’s current lineup of similar S60 5th Edition devices: the Nokia N97, 5800 XpressMusic and the most recent X6.

The comparison will look shortly at the software differences between the Satio and the current S60 5th Edition UI from Nokia (which we will develop in another post with some very long video reviews), then it will focus at the hardware side-by-side comparison with the 3 devices.

Nokia N97: Glory In Images

Here it is, the most awaited and anticipated Nokia device of this year. The N97 is upon us, with its glorious 3.5″ touchscreen, its numeric keyboard, its amazing slide and tilt design, its widgets and 32GB of internal memory. The N97 is here, and here are some images of the device in its awesome white color, as well as a few poorly-lit images of the N97 black silver color (the last 3 being taken by the Nokia 5800). We won’t say a lot, and will let you enjoy the pictures. The images speak for themselves when a handset is so beautifully designed.

As always, click on the thumbnail photos for the full resolution image.
