Nokia is trying to give an innovative stab to its newest handset, and it's all in the name: the Nokia 5235 Comes With Music. However, the only innovation is in the title.

Set to be released in the first quarter of 2010, buyers can sign up for either a 12 or 18-month long subscription for unlimited access to the Nokia Music Store library (if you live in one of the countries where its available). Users can store 33 hours of music, plus bump up storage to another 16 GB through the microSD memory card slot.

Although, a lot of tech bloggers are finding that the 5235 is not much different than its recent predecessor. Like the 5230, it has Symbian S60 5th edition software, a 3.2-inch touchscreen, and a 2-megapixel camera. Plus, it's lacking in GPS.

But to be fair to Nokia, they do admit this model is "based" on the previous one. Additionally, this one will be cheaper, with a price tag of €145 ($215) before taxes, which is €100 ($147) cheaper than the 5230.
