Nokia has launched a sporty Nokia 5140i camera phone that comes with a dust and splash resistant outer shell. This triband phone packs in a 'Fitness Coach' application offering an ‘always-on’ personal trainer that encourages you to go the extra mile or finish the last set. The Fitness Coach application also enables to track sports performance over time or share results via SMS with coaches or teammates. “The Nokia 5140i offers active consumers a mobile phone that complements their on-the-go lifestyle. With its strong feature set and messaging capabilities, the Nokia 5140i enables outdoors and fitness enthusiasts to stay connected whatever their interests are: during hard-core training or just a leisurely hike,” says Tomi Paatsila, vice president (mobile phones), Nokia. MP3 ringtones announce incoming calls and an FM radio provides extra energy while on the go. With Push to talk functionality, the Nokia 5140i enables users to coordinate outdoor activities or cheer sport mates - be it an individual or a whole team - at the push of a button. Personalised highlight reels can also be created and shared using the Nokia 5140i phone’s integrated VGA camera. The phone is expected to leave the starting block and begin shipping in the second quarter of 2005 with an estimated retail price of $260 (excluding the taxes).
