Nokia Open Studio Fall 2006
The 5300 is a sporty little slider phone with an unusually colorful, clean design.
The media keys next to the display take a moment to figure out. Although it looks like you could press directly down on them, they're actually side keys that must be pressed from the side. Once you figure that out, the keys are easy to press through the red rubber, and the rest of the keys feel good and work quite well.

The specs and features of the 5300 are respectable. The display is QVGA, the camera is 1.3 megapixel, and the data supports EDGE. Most importantly for music, the memory card slot supports cards up to 2GB.
The 5300 will come to Europe and Asia by the end of the year, and then to the U.S. in the 1st quarter of next year. Since the 5300 is tri-band GSM, only the U.S. version will have GSM 850.
A cheaper 5200 variant will also be released in the Europe and Asia with downgraded specs all around.
