When I choose to buy this mobile phone, my main concerns are the 3G, Bluetooth, Music and Camera features. But, Nokia Express Music 5320 comes with some other features like Radio, Recorder, Video, 2 Camera (front & back), Nokia Map, GPS data (need external GPS), Message Reader, Real Player, Quick Office, Adobe Reader, N-gage games, FLV (flash video) ready and few other more.

The good thing of FLV ready is you can copy and run clips from Youtube directly without convert anything. Unfortunately you can not slower or faster the video clip.

Another good thing from it for music is the ‘plug connection‘. You can use the standard head phone connector. The original head phone from Nokia does not provide a good bass sound so I change with good quality head phone when I want to hear music, which is much much better.

Below is the picture of the mobile phone. You can have it with Red or Blue color.

In these links below, I will share with you how it works with Ubuntu.
