Pictures of the Nokia 5250 were accidentally loaded on to Nokia’s Ovi site a few weeks ago, but today Nokia has launched the phone, making the release official.
It’s a touchscreen phone, running the S60 5.0 version of Symbian. It has all the modern features we’ve come to expect, such as music player, easy access to social media, multiple email account access, though the camera is somewhat specced down at 2 megapixels. More on the Nokia 5250 specifications below.
