90% profit drop, is it any wonder? Nokia have been going downhill for ages now. Crappy build quality and they dont seem to be bringing anything new to the table. Sure the N95 started the mobile phone revolution and you have to give them respect for that but the day of the N95 leading the market is long gone. You need to pull the finger out and get some more groundbreaking mobile technology on the market or your gonna continue sinking. Good luck Nokia, ive a feeling your gonna need it!!!
To Expert, 17 Apr 2009You are expert of what?
Care to compare the prices? Then talkAha...! LOL Now because you don’t know what to say, you say that we need to compare the prices. Exactly! That is what I sad in the first place!
You can not compare the 5800 to an iPhone because the 5800 is a cheap low range phone while the iPhone is an high-end smart phone. Nokia knows this that is why they priced it lower.
Anyway, at the end of the day, the 5800 is still rubbish. People only buy them because they can not afford a decent device like Omnia, Arena or the iPhone.
Emir, 17 Apr 2009Tell me iphone fatures for that price!! Tell me please u expert!! U are so so stupid! U say ip... moreYour comment means that you are unaware of the capabilities of the iPhone. There are almost 30000 aps for it now, don’t you know that? That means that there are a lot of them with really interesting futures. I won’t be counting them because we did that many times elsewhere.
On the other hand you just proved that you are a brainless person since you judge phones by the specs sheet. Thet is just stupid.
I am repairing Nokia phones every day. I know what I am talking about. The 5800 is coming back in record numbers. It has the lowest build quality in years. The SW is just an unfinished panicky crafted normal Symbian UI.
5800 is s joke compered top the iPhone.
Or to the Omnia HD
Or to the Pixon
Or to the Arena
Emir, 17 Apr 2009To every1 who bash 5800...take phone in your hands first! Ok? Please just take the phone!! And... moreLOL. Have you ever tried another touch phone? I'm sure not. Yeah phone sounds loud, but crappy quality-wise with the headset from the original package. It only sounds good, when you use earphones from Samsung, SE or other brand :) Display is OK, video recording still ok, available memory - ok; battery is OK, unlike most of the other NOkias; everything else is crap - unintuitive menu, zero touch optimizations, bad screen response and not enough hardware keys to compensate for the screen. It's good value of money, but this doesn't change the fact that most of the other touchphones (minus cookie and few similar) are much better. N86 and it's OLED is good, but SE and Samsung have managed to get the same contrast and quality on a regular TFTs looooooooong time ago.
Most Nokias sound crappy when speaking from them, have bad battery life and are overpriced, they should work on that if they really want to keep the number one place, otherwise Samsung, LG and SE will blast them.
Well Well. too much Nokia bashing!!!
i agree with some ppl, old hardware with new outfit...
after n95 they haven't released a phone that has a WOW factor...
n96, n85?? all are the same, n78?,n73??
The Nokia 5800Xpress music, is just a start, and its buggy too!
however it is quite successful!
Personally i own a Motorola Z6 Rokr and totally impressed.
However i wonder that nokia has put so much into the mobile phone but haven't cope up with the call quality which disappoints me.. also i had listed the 5130xpress music before, but i was
unimpressed by the camera and call quality!(my frnd owns it)and im glad i didnt bought it and my motorola works flawlessly on a noisy crowded station and the receiver can hear very well, almost everything i say!
Because management in Nokia doesn't know to do the job they need.
Everybody see that phones with big screens are in demand, only people of decision in nokia don't, they will lose everything if they don't change phone collection. It's shame that LG is taking cake from them...
[deleted post]Im not talking with u! U are pathetic!! What se do? What samsung do? What lg do? 12mpx cam,hd recording,and transparent keys! Lol se cant even make 16m colors screen! Samsung and se take cameras and put them in poor phone...thats all!
To every1 who bash 5800...take phone in your hands first! Ok? Please just take the phone!! And play little with it! Than u say what u got! "5800 sucks" "5800 is plastic toy" "5800 is unfinished".....so so stupid! I have this phone 3 days and its A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!! Dont have even 1 problem with software,not at all! For that price its one amazing phone! Nokia dont steal ppl like apple do! 5800 rocks!! Go nokia'
Nokia has fallen asleep at the wheel. They don't have an OS that can compete with Apple. It will take them years to develop one but by then it will be too late. They will end up like Moto.
[deleted post]How can u compare motorola with nokia!? Motorola hahaha lmao! And with lg and with se hahahaha! Omg! Nokia is maybe not big in usa! But in europe...nokia is biggest and always will be! Always! Ppl in europe forgot about moto! Forgeting about poor se! And dont really care about lg! And iphone...every1 who ever bought that sh*t here is crying now! No one care about iphone! Just stupid americans!

U are so so stupid! U say iphone is high-end phone! With 2mpx camera? With that resolution of the screen? With no video recording? With no 3g camera?...wow how can u even say that?! Iphone is just simple music player who can make phone calls!

The iPhone is a high-end smart-phone whit high price tag.
The 5800 is a half the price (or less) and it is a normal phone. (a crap one that is)
These phones are not in the same league so you can not compare them to each other.
When (if ever) Nokia will have a device which can be compared to the iPhone, than we will see the numbers.
From my point of view, Nokia must go thru this crisis to learn something.
Costumers demands were going crazy in the last year. People were looking only on design and eye candy.
Nokia must learn, that nowadays people are buying mobile phones that are good designed and have UI with astonishing eye candy efect.
That's what people want.
For now Nokia don't have any good designed mobiles with pretty UI.
current statistic: 5800 has sold 13 million more just in 2 months whr iphone took 16 month to sold 17 million phone but including original iphone,iphone 3g according to the iphone...n down fall???its part of business but the fact is who is the leader at the end of match.ooo may b u guys didnt read the last para perfectly...thr its mantioned that this is not a big deal for nokia cz they r selling million million only 5800,if nokia stop selling all products xcept 5800,it will easy to lead the market....keep going nokiaaaa
i personally agree that nokia, though being top-selling, doesn't come up with a real winner as often anymore; but i'd have to say they've had more 'winners' than just n95. like the e71 and 5310 musicXpress (I agree 5800 sucks though). may or may not be by the numbers, but they've proven to please the market. things are tough all around for phone companies, so its all boiling down to one thing: necessity.
The market is punishing Nokia just like it has to do!
Nokia has allowed themselves to sit on their ass and not do anything for the last two years, this is the result of this.
Since the N95 they did not release a single competitive mobile phone. Their phones are just the same old phones with new housings. With cheap housings that is.
And the 5800? We all know that it is a joke! Now the sales figures prove it to! 2 million units sold world wide!!!! That is a huge failure for the formal number one in the world. And no wonder, the 5800 is the worst phone ever made.
It is simple – Nokia is out of ideas, they were not doing any innovation in the last two years. And they really let their build quality to go down. All of their phones are just cheap plastic (except the 6300 which is a really good phone).
Face it Nokia – you are going down! Samsung will take you over with storm this year.
Pathetic… after two years they still do not have a single phone which can compare to the iPhone
NOKIA IS GOING DOWN!..... FAST!!
