Nokia announce fitness focused phone – the Nokia 5140

At the international sports equipment and fashion trade fair, Nokia has unveiled its latest mobile handset the 5140. Far from being just a phone, the 5140 offers a digital compass, torch, digital camera and Fitness Coach application and the ability to take the new Nokia GPS shell.

The phone offers triband functionality for travellers heading to the USA as well as push to talk functions. The push to talk service allows users to quickly connect the 5140 phone user to person, or group of people over the GSM network simply by using a side mounted button.

Following in the fitness theme, the phone is bump, dust and water-resistant as well as being compatible with new products released from Polar - the S25X and the S725.

The phone will be available in Q2 2004
