Nokia 5250 appears in public, stays mum on specs

Nokia 5250

“A slip by the Ovi-supporting team today revealed a new touch-driven Nokia handset that is in the works. Nokia 5250 appeared on the company’s application store website, flaunting a fresh new design, but unfortunately the handset is running on the good old Symbian S60 5th edition OS. Those of you hoping for an Symbian^3 device in the low-end segment are sadly out of luck. The handset is obviously the next member of Nokia’s family of lower midrange touchscreen phones and comes to replace the pretty popular Nokia 5230. There is not much specs about the Nokia 5250 that we can confirm. Perhaps an nHD screen measuring somewhere around 3 inches in diagonal certainly isn’t a wild guess. 3G and GPS are on the cards as well but the rest is pure guesswork. This February Nokia promised to deliver 100 euro touch smartphones and we have yet to see those. Could the Nokia 5250 be the first to go near that psychological barrier? In any case with the Nokia 5250 appearing on the Ovi store page it’s clear that its announcement is fast approaching so we won’t have to wait too long to find out.” via
