For those that want a better camera (not me, I'm down with 3.15MP) then yeah, wait for the eventual NSeries touchscreen.

I would like to correct the specification that this is symbian 9.5 OS as symbian dont have 9.4 os.
Im impressed by the symbian touch screen.first s60v5 mobile which is compatible with older s60v3 application.
Got decent battery life.Nokia maps and gps touch interface support.
But im afraid for any bugs as its the first 9.5 s60v5 mobile.
Well n97 will have 9.5fp1 i guess...

Guys this phone has 4 types of text input as u can see in the video posted on ovi. Also camera and screen is decent.

Nice phone, but people get real, symbian is crap on Nokia phone, slow and buggy, however the phone is really nice and a big step up form the latest phones, like the n96 which i remind everyone is over a year old and has just come out after Nokia milked the N95 cash cow dry. This still has no patch on the IPhone, i have been testing the Nokia 5800 so i know what am talking about

Great phone. But should wait for its release and hands on experience. Nokia has some history of bad performance with great design. so should be cautious before buying it. Compared to iphone, Omnia, and others , this 5800 is the best considering its features.

Best Of Luck.... NOKIA

Hi Friends,
What I would like to say about Nokia 5800 is its drawbacks r higher than the benefits.
Firstly about the multitouch options.I appriciate that nokia has tried to compete with Apple,HTC etc companies with this touch phone . But I have tested the phone by myself & found that Its multi-touching options are very disappointing & really worse than comparing to I-Phone & HTC. So if u r thinking of changing from I-Phone or any good touch ohone to nokia 5800 then trust me that Its not worth it .& its typing experience will simply give you nightmares as no query key-board & on screen keyboard isn't much good . Its screen resolution (360*640) is less than any other latest touch phone of its time . Its brightness is also not Impressive .

Secondly about the camera . I don't know who told u people it has Carl Zais Lens !!! Its true that it has a 3.2 MP auto focus camera . Which's picture quality is same as N73 & in dark environment the picture quality is really worse , as the camera lacks of FLASH . There is also no Lens Cover & the lens is almost at the surface of the body . As a result it is highly possible to get scratched right after the moment u keep it in your jeans pocket .

Thirdly about the Wi-Fi . I don't know tht what is the problem with nokia !!! This is the 1st phone that I have tested in Which U have to type the Wi-Fi access point manually with its settings (So if u r visit new places , try to use their Wi-Fi server for anything then Its Impossible for you to do anything unless u know their Access Point's name & total settings ). What i m trying to say is this phone doesn't support auto-searching access point like several old samsung & motorola mobile set.Its really very very dissapointing.

Fourthly about the music phone . In this fact i have to dissapoint you that Nokia 5220 , Noika 5320 & the latest nokia 5800 are made of sme audio chipset . So if u expect that u will get better sound quality in this latest touch phone of nokia , then u r wrong . The sound quality is the same .
So music lovers wht u would spend 580$ after nokia 5800 , where u can get Nokia 5320(Which also supports N-gage gaming) at 230$ ? Its sterio speaker is so weak that it will not let you hear your call in a busy place .

Fifthly is Its operating system . Sad but true It doesn't support any software of its previous operating system . As a result u will have to buy each & every new software that only Nokia releases for this model . Trust me on this fact that this Symbiab OS 9.5 Touch Edition doesn't support any softwares of its previous edition .

Last but not the least is Nokia 5800's internal memeory . Though It gives a 4 GB card(Not 8 GB) with its package . Its Internal memory is only 80 MB . So if u r willing to download a movie in this phonr through the web then its impossible . Cause using the web uses the internal memory .After downloading your desired whole content then the phone will ask u whether u r willing to save it in your phone memory or memory card ? Which is really very heart-breaking .
The phone doesn't even support N-Gage games . It also lacks FM transmitter like Nokia N78 , N79 , N85 & TV broadcast receiver like N96 . its taklk time is only 3:30 hours .

So if you ask for my opinion then I will prefer you guys to go for NOKIA N810 . It is also a upcoming touch phone of nokia . Has 16 GB internal memory . It supports all video format(avi , wmv , mp4 , 3gp , dat , real media video etc) & all audio format (mp3 , aac , eAAC , wma ctc) . It also has FM transmitter & TV Broadcast receiver . It has all sorts of connectivity such as Bluetooth , Wi-Fi etc . It has 5 MP Carl Zaiss Optics camera with dual led flash . It captures video at 720*480 resolution at 30 Frames per second . It has 3.4 Inch OLED screen & most impressively a query keyboad , Has highest talktime (15 Hours) & standby time (1 month) in Nokia's History .
Its price is a little high (750 $). But I think Its worth the money in every possible way .
