Nokia 5700 XpressMusic Officialized

It didn’t take long for the 5700 XpressMusic rumors to become official. The newest 3G handset from Nokia has many of the traits of the 5300 XpressMusic, but it’s got a nice twist, literally. The rotating bottom isn’t just for show, either: each position serves as a different mode for the phone. The most obvious function for the 5700 is a music player, then a 2-megapixel camera, followed by video call and then smartphone.

The 5700 features a MicroSD slot that can be upgraded to 2GB. Stream audio to your A2DP Bluetooth stereo headset if you don’t feel like being wired in with the 3.5mm plug earbuds or rock out with the built-in speakers. The music player also supports album art, playlists, and a 5-band equalizer with audio visualizations. The 5700 XpressMusic is expected to hit Europe next quarter with a €350 price tag and it’ll be available in Red and Black.
