Is it easy to type on this phone in terms of using it for instant messaging? I never owned or used a touch screen phone before so i wouldn't know.
therock, 19 Feb 2009i pre-ordered this touchscreen phone through NOKIA USA. i cant wait to own it. I was in the... moreu r right. nokia 5800 touch screen is giving constant problems and the phones have been sent to nokia care and they are not being returned for weeks altogether.it is flickering and not starting the main screen. i think this bug is not in any other touchscreen phone. nokia should immedietely take steps to rectify it.(my phone had this problem after one month of my buying it. i have left it with nokia care and even after 12 days there is no reply from them.)
I think it's much better to buy another phone because I already tried this phone for only a month and then I decided to sell it and buy the other.
This phone has lost Nokia's user friendly feature and if you like to text your friend, so just put your choice to another phone. Its qwerty keyboard isn't convenient to use because you have to see to the display to avoid mistakable press. Its handwriting recoginition is also not convenient enough to use. The best way to text is using alphanumeric keypad, but it's also not helping you a lot. Overall, I think it's not a good phone to buy, if you wanna buy touchscreen phone, just buy the others so you will not regret the other day.

Is that like Adobe Flash, where you have to install Adobe Flash on the PC or flash light on mobiles?
A closed standard application that forces you to subscribe to Skype if you want to call landlines.
Sorry Apple doesn't support that closed standard either, you can use Fring which lets you use any SIP provider you want including Skype.
So what was that about Apple and closed standards?
