Nokia 5140


Normally, the phone is equipped with the flashlight located on the upper butt-end; you can activate it out of the stand by mode by pressing the # key. The flashlight does not work with the locked keyboard. It is not very clear why it was done so and...

Nokia 5140 review:


Intro It is believed that only three things will survive a nuclear war: Volvos, cockroaches, and Twinkies. But with its 5140 cell phone, Nokia might have added another item to the mix. Wrapped in rubber and solidly constructed, the 5140 is a sharp...

Quirky features; sturdy design; speakerphone; solid call quality; support for EDGE.

Small display; buttons are not very tactile.

The Nokia 5140 wins points for originality, but its design will stymie frequent cell phone users.

Nokia 5140


Nokia faces off against Nextel with the new Nokia 5140, a Swiss Army knife of a phone that can do everything but light your campfire.

Small and rugged. Unique outdoorsy features. Stellar 9-hour battery life.

Push-to-talk and IM functions don't work yet. Buttons can be hard to press.

Nokia 5140


We check out Nokia's phone with everything in our Australian review.

Sturdy design makes it suitable for active people ; Includes FM radio, compass, thermometer, flashlight and fitness coach app ; Supports push-to-talk (PTT)

Lacklustre 4096 colour screen ; Case can be tricky to remove

All up, the Nokia 5140 should satisfy the needs of most active types and labourers who require a sturdy phone that can survive a bit of rough handling.

Nokia 5140


The Nokia 5140 is the big sister of the 5100 device, which was released a while ago by the Finnish giant. The handset had some minor flaws which weren't much to worry about, but they have been fixed in this model. The 5140 is also upgraded with a VGA...

Nokia 5140


The 'Swiss-army' 5140 sports a compass, torch, thermometer and is shock/water-resistant. Squeeze in a fitness coach and Nokia has a great phone for those with active lifestyles.

Nokia 5140


Nokia's latest in the rugged rubber-bodied series, the 5140 has a lot of innovations up its sleeve, enough to give the series yet another fresh look. With some added functionalities that were long overdue the 5140 seems to have what it takes to be a...
