With a 3.2-inch touchscreen display and 70 MB of internal memory, Nokia's 5230 "Nuron" handset seems to be a solid entry-level smartphone. The device was officially unveiled for the first time today.

The Nuron is slated to come out exclusively for T-Mobile within "the coming weeks," according to a Nokia press release. The phone has all the standard features one might expect - USB connectivity (micro USB), a 2 MP camera, MP3 player with FM radio, and a microSD card slot.

Even though its feature set is not that exhausting, it has a highly impressive battery life - I'm talking about nearly three weeks (18.25 days) of battery available on standby mode. It can also run 33 hours on music playback, or around 5 hours on video playback.

The key feature, though, is that this is Nokia's first device to come pre-installed with Ovi Maps and its turn-by-turn directions.

Nokia did not reveal pricing details in its press release, but according to a report from ZDNet, the Nuron will retail for around $70 with a 2-year contract.
