The Nokia 5300 XpressMusic phone, which features a stylish slider design and can hold up to 1,500 music tracks, keeps the focus on advanced music portability. With dedicated external music keys, stereo Bluetooth, and a memory card slot supporting up to 2 GB of memory, the 5300 offers a comprehensive feature set at an accessible price. Never before has it been as easy or affordable for consumers to own a mobile phone that also offers a first-rate music experience that compares favorably to any stand-alone music player. Other key features include a QVGA display, speakerphone, a 1.3-megapixel camera, EDGE data support, and flashlight.
This unlocked cell phone can be used with a GSM network service provider and it provides tri-band connectivity (900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 1900 MHz). It does not come with a SIM card, and it requires that you provide a SIM card for usage with your selected service provider.
The 5300's slider design features a large display that sports an impressive 240 x 320 resolution and support for over 200,000 colors. Even with the slider closed, the 5300 features great music and call control. There are music control keys on the left side and volume adjustment keys on right side of the phone, while a stylish five-way center button resides just below the display. Slide the phone open to reveal its easy to use backlit keypad. The phone's 1.3-megapixel camera lens is discreetly housed on the left edge of the phone. A built-in mini-USB 2.0 port is provided, as well as Bluetooth stereo headset compatibility. The built-in hot-swappable microSD memory expansion slot is compatible with cards up to 2 GB of capacity.
The 5300 supports polyphonic ringtones, as well as MP3-based ringers so you can load your favorite sound effects and music clips to alert you of incoming calls. Plus, with the phone's picture and ringer ID functions, you can assign pictures and ringtones to your most common callers. For when you need to be discreet, there's also a vibrate ringer mode. Meanwhile, voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family, and associates as easy as saying their names. The 5300's built-in contacts list and phone book will keep track of all your contacts with its ample storage capacity. Lastly, there's an integrated speakerphone for talking hands-free, and the phone's Bluetooth connectivity means that your favorite Bluetooth headset is fully compatible (for music listening, you can still use your favorite wired headphones with the Nokia 2.5mm AV connector, sold separately).
The 5300 is a mobile messaging and Internet powerhouse. With support for the MMS (multimedia messaging service), the phone can send picture and text messages, and when coupled with the phone's powerful camera, MMS opens up great opportunities for robust messaging. The phone ships with a built-in email client that supports POP3, IMAP, and SMTP protocols.
Getting on the Internet is easy with the 5300. It supports the GPRS data protocol, as well as the high-speed EDGE wireless data service. When used with your carrier data plan and the phone's USB or Bluetooth data capability, the phone can be used as a wireless modem for laptops and PDAs. The phone is bundled with a mobile Web browser, too, offering hearty Web browsing abilities right on the phone. Meanwhile, T9 text entry, a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit--a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.
The 5300 supports PC synchronization via USB or Bluetooth, which means you can manage and synchronize contacts, calendar and other data with your PC. Nokia's PC Suite application makes this process a breeze. A number of handy software tools are bundled with the 5300 including a voice memo recorder, a calculator, a calendar, a to-do list, and an alarm clock.
The Nokia 5300 can hold over 100 albums worth of music (approximately 1500 tracks) on a 2 GB microSD card. The digital audio player supports MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+ and WMA formats. Thanks to dedicated music keys, you can easily control the playback of music while simultaneously enjoying other functions such as texting, browsing, or taking pictures. For an even louder groove, you can plug in your favorite headphones or external speakers with a 3.5mm headset jack by simply connecting them to the 5300 using the inbox adapter. The 5300 can swiftly transfer albums and music collections to and from a PC using a standard micro USB connector or Bluetooth. When traveling, you can use the Nokia Wireless Audio Gateway (sold separately) to stream music collections and favorite playlists wirelessly to any supported stereo from the 5300.
The Nokia 5300 also comes with the latest messaging functions complemented by a 1.3-megapixel camera. The camera features a selftimer, an 8x digital zoom, and can be used to capture video and view video playback. You can even view video playback in landscape mode, and the volume keys double as zoom keys when the camera mode is activated. And don't forget about the games! The phone supports Java gameplay and other Java-based applications.
The 5300 also sports an airplane mode feature, which allows the user to safely use the non-wireless functions of a phone (such as music, games, or organizer functions) on an airplane during flight.
