Nokia 5530 XpressMusic Games Edition goes on sale in US, puts the hurt on boredom
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.
