"We were quite surprised to find that Nokia 5530 XpressMusic has a geotagging option in its menu system. We guess Nokia got carried away with copying the 5800 software and forgot there is no GPS chip onboard."
I just wanted to correct you, because geotagging uses the nodes (the network) to triangulate your position. It is not as accurate as GPS, but thats the technology they use.
-Geotagging does not require GPS.
here's whats funny about my recent discovery with this phone.
it has no 3G but it can still connect to my telecom providers internet service which makes me question the used of 3G technology aside from connecting to mobile internet.. do we still need 3G?
Mangesh S, 27 Sep 2009@anil thanks buddy for letting us know abt free senheisser offer with 5800! That's gr8 along w... moresame 2 u dear.
4 ur kind info, advertisement is running on televisions about 5800 (price 14049/-), with free senheisser headsets.
if we ignore smartphone feature and can put 5k more frm the 5800 price, i think better is Samsung Jet.
I will wait for 2 more weeks for 5530. Still not came, and Jet price is around 17k at tht time, i ll go for Jet.
evilkid, 26 Sep 2009Do you have problems with the back cover? Please answer me :D@evilkid yes many people have reported wobbling/loose back cover in 5530. Dont worry it is a common minor problem.

hi i think buying 5800 is gud decision becoz im getting nokia blue tooth rs1 200 and senihiser head phone which cost rs2300 only for kinetic scrolling we have to take risk with new product 5800 is sucessfull and hit too peaswe reply god bless you all parth and uday.....
nokia's new phone are always expensive. wait for ast least three months and you will see the price to starts going down. 5800 initial price was P21,000 now after a few months,you can get for 13,800. selling this phone for 13+ would make people opt for samsung or LG which are cheaper althought it lacks wi-fi.
plz guys...i've the phone 2 weeks and the video resolution is at 640x480(vga) 30 fps!!it's the same as 5800.stop saying that the resolution is 15fps that isn't correct.
UPDATE TO MY POST: Php 13,700 is the Nokia 5530 price in my area, same as Nokia 5800. But I dont know if Nokia 5800 has complete package or has been reduced.
Nokia Philippines listed this on their website:
Video recording at up to 640 x 480 pixels (VGA) and up to 30 fps
Wow! I wonder why it was QCIF when I read it at other Nokia website?
Php 13,700 is the price, same as the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic but I dont know if it has the usual accessories
i asked nokia prority dealer in bangalore
he said that even though it is realesed
u cant buy it till december

Does the seinheisser headset that is now available wid 5800 have an line mic, to be used as a handsfree. Coz i havnt seen many headsets wid that, and incase that is the case then 5800 cant be used in the handsfree mode.
