Nokia 5130 coming to T-Mobile in September, no one notices


Dear T-Mo faithful, are you being overstimulated by flashy phones like the myTouch 3G? Does the Touch Pro2 pack too much power under the hood for you? Do keyboards on phones like the Blackberry Curve 8520 completely flummox you? Well, fret no longer, because T-Mobile has an unremarkable candybar that’s just right for you! That right, Nokia’s latest (and by latest, we mean 6 months old) XpressMusic handset is due to shuffle onto T-Mobile store shelves come September 16.

All snarkiness aside, Nokia’s 5130 looks to be nothing if not a solid addition to T-Mobile’s lineup of entry-level phones. The specs have been well documented, which isn’t a surprise considering how long it’s already been floating around, but they seem adequate for the users T-Mobile’s targeting the phone at. Let’s take a peek:

  • 2-inch QVGA display
  • Quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE
  • Support for up to 16 GB of expandable memory
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • FM radio with RDS

Sure, it probably won’t set your world on fire, but for all y’all folks looking for something pocketable on the cheap, it looks poised to do the job. Pricing is still unavailable, but we’ll be sure keep the four of you who actually care posted.
