By: Amanda Dorothy

Music lovers can avail of two new models of mobile phones unveiled by Nokia. They offer excellent music player services and connectivity features. They also offer high end multi-media features, though they differ in design and approach.

The two new music player phones launched by Nokia are the Nokia 5310 Xpress Music and the Nokia 5610 Xpress Music. The Nokia 5310 Xpress Music mobile phone has a slim candy-bar design and is available in two colors: blue or red. Although Nokia did not jump into the fray for creating slimmer phones, this phone is also quite trim. Its extremely compact profile and sleek design makes it portable and easy to handle. It is 103 mm tall, 9.9 mm thick and 44mm wide. It weighs just 70 grams.

It is observed that the Nokia 5310 Xpress Music in spite of being thin has space for a 3.5 mm headphone jack and proper music control buttons on its left side. The other features of the phone are a 2 mega pixel camera, full Bluetooth with a stereo effect. It also includes an FM radio and comes with a micro SD card slot for holding cards of storage space of up to 4 GB. Apart from these, the Nokia 5310 Xpress Music also has a speaker phone, and applications relating to messaging and organizing. It comes in two tri band versions, one for North America and the other for Europe.

The Nokia 5610 Xpress Music is a little different than the 5310.the Nokia 5610 Xpress Music is slider hand set, also available in red or blue. It is a bulkier model than the Nokia 5310 Xpress Music, with dimensions of 99 mm height, 49 mm width and 17 mm thickness. It also weighs more at 110 grams. The Nokia 5610 Xpress Music has a sliding control just above the toggle button that starts the music player with a single swipe. This is unlike the music buttons mounted on the side on the 5310.

The Nokia 5619 Xpress Music is also different from the Nokia 5310 Xpress Music in the sense that it has a 3.2 mega pixel camera with a flash. The 5610 also supports 3G bands which are used in North America, Europe and Australia. Therefore, only one quad band version (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) is available unlike the Nokia 5310 Xpress Music which is available in two tri band versions.
