It seems that Nokia wasn’t quite contented with the release of its N97 as the QWERTY based mobile function. At least the release of its 5730 XpressMusic suggests so, which is, undoubtedly, a nice addition in the range.

Aside from a slide-out keyboard, the 5730 XpressMusic has a 2-inch QVGA screen and a complete numeric keypad, so a nice choice for those who want to have the concrete feel of available buttons.

QWERTY keys with dot-matrix styling, Symbian 60 OS, a microSD card slot, GPS and nearly five hours battery life are some other available features.

But it’s quite saddening that the 5730 XpressMusic doesn’t have 3G connectivity, so the users who wanted to transcribe their heart out on it would have to do this with little bit lower pace.

However, the N97 may serve these people best quite fairly and it’s not forbidden to think about a new BlackBerry.

However, if you are looking for futuro retro styling in your device, then it’s a real thing for you. The 5730 XpressMusic is expected to hit the shelves in Europe somewhere in April with a €220 price tag.
