The Nokia 5230 (also known as the Nokia 5230 Nuron) is a smartphone manufactured by Nokia, running Symbian OS v9.4, S60 5th Edition. It was released in November 2009 after being announced in August of the same year.[1]

It features a 3.2 inch resistive touchscreen, 3G internet support and support for microSD memory cards. It also supports A-GPS, Bluetooth, FM radio and full HTML internet browsing. However, it lacks support for Wi-Fi due to its status as an entry-level smartphone. It was released after with the Nokia 5530 and Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, which featured Wi-Fi support (but not 3G) and both 3G and Wi-Fi, respectively.

During its lifespan, the 5230 sold around 150 million units, making it one of the best selling smartphones to date.[2] It has had particular success in developing countries.

The Nuron version, released only in North America, which has WCDMA Band IV (AWS) enabled, comes preloaded with maps of the United States, Canada and Mexico.[3] In January 2010, Nokia announced that Ovi Maps will be available for free for certain smartphones which includes the Nokia 5230, thus enabling free offline voice guided navigation for more than 180 countries.[4]

51.0.002 is the latest firmware version available.
