Nokia are not only keen on populating the XpressMusic grid, they're tailoring and focusing their handsets to cover a wider market.

Nokia are not only keen on populating the XpressMusic grid, they're tailoring and focusing their handsets to cover a wider market. Come to think of it, the XpressMusic portfolio is more like the standard 4-digit models - the "common" phones that are neither top-of-the-line media gadgets nor business tools.

The XpressMusic phones get their edge elsewhere - they're reasonably priced and specialize in music. Throwing Nokia 5630 XpressMusic into the mix, there's a wide range of phones to choose from. Starting with the run-of-the-mill S40 handsets like 5130 or 5310 and going all the way through capable Symbian smartphones to the touch-enabled 5800. The 5630 even has a side-sliding QWERTY counterpart - the Nokia 5730 XpressMusic.

The Nokia 5630 XpressMusic is a great upgrade over the 5320 - faster 3G, Wi-Fi on board, improved camera, a speedy CPU and all in a 12mm slim package. The Contacts bar is a great addition too - all the most common tasks can be carried out in the comfort of the homescreen. Ovi Contacts is a nice feature too, considering that a big part of all communications of a typical high-tech adolescent now goes through some IM network. We'd have liked to see support for more networks though.

The one thing we'll probably never see on an XpressMusic phone however, is a high-resolution camera - with Wi-Fi, GPS and even touchscreens, they'd be too deep into N-Series territory and it's important for Nokia to maintain their brand distinctions.

So, Nokia have taken quite a bite at the music-enabled handsets market with some multi-talented players in Symbian shirts.
