Excerpt: Nokia’s audio-centric XpressMusic 5610 serves as a niche device for those who want a portable jukebox packaged in along with their phone, but without all the bulk of a full-on convergence device like the iPhone . We liked the highly practical form-factor, feel and emphasis on an easy-to-access media player, but also felt it needed some more tweaking on the software side.
Pros: Sleek and well-built; respectable sound quality and EQ
Cons: Software needs a little refinement; poor battery life when used for playing music
Excerpt: Nokia has announced three new handsets at it's Nokia: Go Play event in London, England. We were invited to have a first hand look at the new models. So will these be the handsets we all crave in the coming months or ones that fade into the background? We get playing to find out. The Nokia 5610 XpressMusic phone is the company's music slider, and like the 5310, also announced at the same event, sits beneath the company's multimedia N series handsets.
Pros: Music buttons, Series 40 interface, 3 megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth
