is it real?

I don't think Nokia will be launching new product with the old model no. There was a Nokia 3250 in the past, and Nokia doesn't reuse old model no again for new product.

I am skeptical with this "new" model.

Yep its real

Not 3G

* Tri-band GSM coverage on up to five continents (GSM/EDGE 900/1800/1900)

Nokia has presented the Nokia 3250, its second music phone from Nokia, essentially its the cheaper version of the N91.

It is a N series phone and it is based on the Series 60 3rd Edition, and running under Symbian OS v9 same as N91, also it has Mini-SD card slot, along with 2 Megapixel camera in module similar to N90. As it is a cheaper version, it hasn’t Wi-Fi, hard drive, or even support for 3G networks. The phone looks like 3230 but with innovative twistable keypad, it has music keys from one side and normal keypad on the other side.

see http://www.europe.nokia.com/nokia/0,8764,80116,00.html

How do 750 songs fit on a 1GB card...
Seems ~3x too many!

What software and audio compression is Nokia planning to ship/use with these?

"In addition to the twist design and support for up to 1 gigabyte of high quality music, the music player of the Nokia 3250 supports a wide array of digital music formats such as MP3, WMA, M4A and AAC, making it easy to load and transfer music."

750 songs of course not in MP3 format, but can be reached with other codecs I guess.

Same old story as with battery life...

Anyway they use AAC+, about 1 to 2 MB per song I think

2 MB x 750 = 1 500 MB (=1.5 giga)

Did I calculate something wrong?

One thing is for sure:
750 songs on 1GB space is not "high quality sound"

So on 1GB you can store ~200 songs in MP3 format (each is around 5MB), this is "high quality" more or less..

To be honest 200 songs is almost 12 CD's. For me it's enough to carry on a device and listen whatever I want even on long trips..

it has FM radio too..

In my opinion this phone can be a bigger hit then the N91, altough it's not WCDMA capable.. but for the mass market it's perfect

Yeah that was cut and past from another site above. I think what they where sayin its a smaller brother of the N series N91 and it makes an impression of a budget version of the N90/N91

The phone runs on the Series 60 3rd Edition, and running under Symbian OS v9 same as N91

see Nokia and you can compare the 3250 against the n91

http://www.europe.nokia.com/phones/comparephones/compare.jsp?location=EMEA&language=EN&phone=

display size Display Size: 3250 176 x 208 pixels n91 176x208 pixels

display colurs 3250 up to 262,144 colors n91 up to 262.000 colours

total memory
3250
10 MB internal memory plus microSD card memory expandable up to 1GB for 750 songs

n91
Up to 4 GB hard disk drive

Camera: 3250 Yes, 2 megapixel camera n91 Yes, 2 megapixel camera

Image Resolution:3250 1600x1200 pixels n91 1600 x 1200 pixels (default), 640 x 480 pixels

Yes not a N series but I would describe as a small brother and not having 3G would make you just want to spend more and go for the n91

It may not even be released here we will have to wait and see.

i get what you mean.. i suppose you can say that since they are both symbian phones and are both aimed at music lovers.
the 3250 is probably going to be nokia's cheaper alternative so that they dont loose their customers to sonyericsson or samsung.
