Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970even i m doing same thing.... now i m planning to buy 5800 by next week
Is this phone available in malaysia? I heard that they started shipping here last week, but Im unconfirmed whether it has arrive or not...
I went to a nearby phone shop, and I saw this in the window, and i was surprised, because at first sight, the screen was tinyyyy... Did anyone else think so? Those who have it, are you finding the screen difficult to use?

hey guys plzz can any one give me the address of the shop where i can get low rate mobile.....
Its better to buy 5800XM because the price tag of 5530XM will be around 13k whereas 5800XM is 13.5k .. with an 500 are you going to lose bigger screen, GPS.
nokia 5800 is so good that it's always compared with iphone which is double the price. What other phone is constantly compared that way. Hopefully 5530 will follow its bigger, better equipped older brother

Thank you soooo much for your quick response and I'm going to buy the phone b... moreUPnP stands for PLUG AND PLAY
If u connect through wi-fi of 5530 U will need the key of the network if any!
But in UPnP if the device U are using is supported by the network, it connects without any Key!
U need key in non-UPnP device
And device support in UPnP device
Dark-saber, 17 Sep 2009can anyone pls tell me will this phone rotate the screen like the nokia 5800?

We are waiting for the phone to release in India :P
TOO GOOD SMARTPHONE, VERY CAPABLE AND A IPHONE "KILLER"
-Slim & trim, very good Looking.
-Enough memory [16 Gb Micro SD]
-Value-for-money [low priced]
I purchased the 5530 a few days back. Black/Red model. Used it vigorously and let me assure you that it is a "fantastic device", a charm to interact with AND definitely an IPhone KILLER!
Besides having all the bells & whistles (the specs. are available in every site, so technicalities avoided here & speaking of ground realities) it's a thriller phone, which is capable of doing everything that we need / look-for in today's mobile phones. It's thrills are in: a) Super-Slim body, b) deadly user interface, c) great shooting capability (both pics & vids), d) top-of-the-line music quality, e) No 3G (its's a boon, it made the phone slimmer & most of us do not need 3G, WiFi being enough) AND e) Amorous Price Tag.
Dear IPhonites, my Nokia 5530 beats you guys all the way thru (I do own an IPhone and am done with it). Why shell-out that dough? The 5530 is better (cheaper) having all it's functions and upscaled! (16Gb card, 3.2Mp camera, good stocked nokia music store that is cheaper than ITunes ...etc.
A nice factor of the 5530 is it's ease at managing thru the laptop. There is a cool USB Cable (in box) that connects it with the laptop and thru the OVI Suite (DvD in box) I have downloaded / uploaded all the files (pics, vids, music, contacts, messages and touched every part of the phone, arranged them, modified them without any qualms at all. And the Vids shot looked good too, contrary to what others say.
Overall, I am deeply satisfied with this lovely product. It's getting rave reviews too from my pals & colleagues. And my wife adores it. What more do we need?
So much so that I have put-up my Black IPhone 2G 8 Gb for sale / Gift, rather than getting the new 3G model. Mainly because I never needed 2G / 3G capability during my 1 yr. of usage (Wi-Fi being enough) and I do not wish to shell-out further (and huge) amount just to get more memory. Note, IPhone doesn't have secondary storage capability (Micro SD cards, like the 5530). And then IPhone's cam (2 Mp) is also well beaten by 5530 (3.2 Mp).
I say, "the 5530 cam is good enough". The pics are absolutely stunning. Though low light is a bit wanting, so does all camphones. And IPhone was poorer. The pics shot with my 5530 were flawless even when blown-out in my 42" LCD TV. Thus, I do not see the requirement of 5 MP & more cams in the other models. Vids were good too, for a phone shot. Better than lots of other smart / camphones. And then, for a dedicated movie shoot I do not see the usage of a phone. We would rather use our camcorders, no? I do so with my JVC HD-7 (another great FHD camcorder, whatever the websites say, it beats all. -No, I am not dwelling on it here further).
I find the 5530 a wholesome package, fully loaded smartphone, too good for its price tag. And well above the requirement of any other present models, including the other Nokias. It is beyond value-for-money. Actually, the Nokia pricing is a surprise, they could have easily priced it higher.
I have, as you see above, compared the 5530 basically with the IPhone. As that seemed to be the most "wanted phone" by everyone. I have also compared the 5530 on ground with Nokia 5800 (which is good, but bulkier and not as smart looking as the 5530). This phone [Nokia 5530] is "Classy". And again compared it with similar models of LG, Samsung, HTC and Palm, while doing my market research for an IPhone replacement. I found all the others were "very similar" to the Nokia 5530, Albeit at a "heftier price", which to my opinion, is a pure farce. If Nokia could do it, sure can others. That prompted me to assert that the other brands are "not selling right". Which is why, I definitely advocate the Nokia 5530. It is the Best in the market.
Thus, my friends, I say, "Go for it... now", before the 5530 is sold out of the market; or Nokia re-thinks on it, takes-it of the shelf and brings-out a modified 5530 with another name (model no.) & higher price tag.
I HOPE THE ENTHUSIASTS GET MY POINT.
***HAPPY 5530ing, Friends***
EXACTLY MAN U ROCK!! EVRY WORD OF IT WAS CORRECT!!
