Nokia's XpressMusic 5530 gets priced and dated

Nokia has announced that its XpressMusic 5530 handset will be arriving in the UK on 11 August. Billing it as a rival to LG's "Cookie" handset, Nokia's new phone is a low-end touchscreen aimed at teenagers.

It's going to cost £130, or it'll be free on a £15 per month contract. Which networks will be carrying It hasn't been announced yet, but we'd guess it'll be showing up as widely as possible. It'll be available in black/red and blue/white colour combos and Nokia says the phone offers "superb value for money".

As previously reported, it's a 2G handset, but it does pack Wi-Fi alongside its 2.9-inch resistive touchscreen, 3.2-megapixel camera and 3.5mm headphone jack. It runs at the same resolution as the N97, but the screen is smaller, so expect crisp images compared to Nokia's flagship handset.
