Perfect for those who love listening to music on the go, Nokia 5233 delivers up to 33 hours of music playback with 70MB of internal memory, expandable up to 16GB via microSD.

Nokia 5233 is now out in the Philippines! It has suggested retail price (SRP) of Php 6,990 and is available only in Black.

Here's the Nokia 5233 press release courtesy of Nokia Philippines and BridgesPR:

Nokia 5233: Tap for fun

Nokia’s latest chart topper delivers total music and a great entertainment experience at a very affordable price. Enjoy up to 33 hours of music playback with 70MB of internal memory, and add more songs with its expandable memory (up to 16GB). Just plug in your earphones to its 3.5mm AV connector and you’re set! Organizing your tunes is also fast, easy, and simple with the Nokia Music for PC application.

The fun doesn’t stop with music. The Nokia 5233 features a 3.2” full touchscreen, which means a bigger and clearer view of vibrant videos, photos, and games. It has various input options from full screen handwriting with your finger or stylus, virtual QWERTY, and a traditional styled keypad. And unlike other touchscreen phones, the Nokia 5233 has a one tap/ two tap function for better accuracy and precision.

The Nokia 5233 also lets you access the different offerings of the Ovi Store based on your interests -- games, wallpapers, themes, and so much more. Capture the moment with the 2mp camera and share your passions on the go via integrated online communities such as Facebook, MySpace or YouTube. Use the Contacts Bar to keep track of up to 20 of your closest friends and see the history of your communication (IM, email, SMS, phone) and the media they share with you on the homescreen. The Media Bar provides instant access to your favourite media and applications from music, photos, or Ovi Share.


Compared to Nokia 5800, 5230 does not support Wifi and 3G connectivity and does not feature GPRS. 5800 has a 3.2 MP camera, 5230 only has 2 MP camera.

Like Nokia 5230, 5233 does not support Wifi. However, 5230 supports 3G connectivity and features GPRS.

Needless to say, Nokia 5230 and 5800 are both more expensive than 5233. As of March 2010, Nokia 5800 has a Philippine price tag of roughly Php 13,500 while Nokia 5230 sells for around Php 8,500.
