Featuring chrome edges like the iPhone, a resistive touchscreen and 3.5G support, Nokia 5235 XpressMusic is sure to give other entry-level touchscreen phones a run for their money:
Like Samsung Corby S3653, Nokia 5235 XM doesn't have wifi support (Want wifi on your XM touchscreen device? Check out Nokia 5800 or 5530). However, it makes up for it with handsome form factor and its plethora of music-centric features:
Rediscover your passion for music - Comes With Music gives you unlimited free songs from Nokia Music Store.
Access your tracks quickly with one touch of the Media Bar and then listen to your collection on the built-in music player.
Manage your music and rip songs from your compatible PC with the Nokia Ovi Player.
Listen to up to 33 hours of continuous music after only one charge.
Enjoy excellent sound quality using headphones via a Bluetooth connection or the 3.5 mm audio connector.

Nokia 5235 XM is already out in Europe and runs for 145 Euros there or more or less Php 9,500 . No word from Nokia yet on its Philippine release but given its price point, I believe it won't be long before it reaches our shores.
