Nokia 5500 Sport Music Edition
Nokia today announced the latest addition to its family of “Active” phones with the introduction of the Nokia 5500 Sport Music Edition. Adding to the well-received concept of the Nokia 5500 Sport, the Music Edition is enhanced with a 512 MB microSD card for enjoying up to 375 songs, as well as a fitness carrying strap, bicycle holder and sports headset packed in a new energetic color. The innovative carrying strap of the Nokia 5500 Sport Music Edition allows it to be worn around the waist or strapped around an arm to ensure that the handset stays in place, even during vigorous exercise. The sports headset also offers handsfree convenience for music and conversation with an anatomically engineered, over-the-ear design. Featuring an integrated pedometer the Nokia 5500 Sport Music Edition lets users know the distance travelled and calories burned during a run. Other activities, such as a bicycle tour or cross-country skiing can also monitor distance and calories with an optional GPS module. With the press of a single button to activate three dedicated “modes”, the Nokia 5500 Sport Music Edition can switch from a phone mode to stay in touch, a music mode to relax or energize, and a sports mode to help users go the extra mile.
With two taps, the Nokia 5500 Sport Music Edition reads an SMS aloud. A 2 megapixel camera completes the well-rounded feature set of the Nokia 5500 Music Edition. The triband Nokia 5500 Sport Music Edition (GSM 900/1800/1900) is now available in select shops around Europe. The expected retail price before taxes and subsidies is approximately 350 EUR($445).
