I own this phone - and it really feels like an "unfinished" phone - from a software point of view. I wonder if Nokia will update the firmware - to solve the bugs and improve the functionality of the phone, in the same way they did with E71...

The 5800 is selling for 300 plus on eBay...

...consumers need to wait a few more days and buy the phone direct from Nokia for about 250. Or get it free on a tariff of 25 - 35.

I just bought my 5800 2 weeks ago and found tat it really hard to use because it's always hang and need to restart the phone.
Even sent to Nokia service workshop few times, they also can't fix it.

I'll sell it in these few days and change to buy Omnia.

5800's out looking is really not special & beauty at all.
I prefer out looking of Omnia.

I have used one of these for a day and found it much quicker than my v.30sw n95. Screen response is great, music loads up quickly, 3.5g is much better than n96. It looks like a winner. I would expect the usual s60 teething probs but you wont be disappointed. I wasnt & i'm very hard to please. It feels like an n73 in size & shape.
I cant wait!!
