Nokia's 5730 XpressMusic is the latest addition to the company's music range of mobile phones. Featuring all the perks of a modern handset, including Internet access, a Facebook application, Google Maps, GPS, instant messaging, 3G connectivity, and a 3.2-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, the 5730 XpressMusic is clearly a winner.
The Nokia 5730 XpressMusic has a funky design, with glossy black and red casing. The phone has a standard keypad and navigation wheel, with shuffle buttons along the side for skipping, stopping and playing music.
The Nokia 5730 XpressMusic's form factor is the classic candy bar, but the phone also slides sideways to reveal a QWERTY keyboard. Although buttons are spaced apart and illuminated well, the keys' texture makes them difficult to feel. In addition, your thumb gets a tad cramped when using the keyboard.
Nokia has long been known for making simple-to-use and sturdy phones and the 5730 XpressMusic is a good example.
A pair of noise-cancelling ear buds is included in the sales package, and their sound is crisp and clear. Thankfully, the Nokia 5730 XpressMusic has a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, so you have the option of using any set of headphones you like. Continuing the music theme is the inclusion of an FM radio; reception is clear and navigation between stations is straightforward.
Nokia has packed plenty of features into the 5730XpressMusic without compromising size or performance. AccuWeather.com, RealPlayer, GPS, podcasting, access to Nokia's music store, a voice recorder and a Facebook application are all included.
Audio on the Nokia 5730 XpressMusic when making and receiving calls is clear and volume can be adjusted with the side-mounted controls.
Battery life is impressive considering the number of features crammed into the phone. Overall, the 5730 is a great addition to the XpressMusic mobile phone range. Anyone who likes their music and phone bundled together should take a look at it.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
