Sure, Nokia's 5530 XpressMusic has been on sale across the States for months now, but here's the thing: if you bust it out of the box and try to use it literally the second you get the package in the mail, you'll find yourself facing a depression-inducing lack of entertainment. It's a nightmarish reality facing thousands of buyers, but Nokia's closing the gap with the release of the 5530 Games Edition, which -- yes, that's right -- includes a bunch of games preloaded. In total, you've got 20 titles from both Gameloft and EA for $10 more than the standard model at $299 -- the only problem is that Nokia's running a special on the base 5530 for $219 right now, so for the moment, anyway, you're much, much better off going the boring route and loading the games yourself.
