Review: Nokia 5230 Nuron

The Nuron supports microSD cards up to 16GB. You're not going to have any problems stuffing the Nuron with music, video and photo content, that's for sure. Music can be synced directly to the Nuron's storage or via Nokia's PC Suite software. It can also be side-loaded into a microSD card.

The basic music player is, once again, the same that Nokia uses on its other S60 handsets. That are no new features that I can find. For such a media-centric device, I was holding out hope that Nokia would pay some extra attention to the music app. It didn't.

Playback works fine and all the controls make sense. It is easy to use and adjust, set play lists and save songs as ringtones, but I was expecting more pizazz. The Nuron has an FM radio, but no transmitter.

Given the overall same-ness, it's obvious that Nokia is investing its time and money elsewhere.
