The third party applications that users are talking about are java application. Like i said before, java applications are like flash games on pc,they have very limited ability on user data processing..
Like Rajeev said, android phones are the best smart phones but android os is still in development n hasn't yet got it's root like symbian.. I bet there aint anyone in my place who knows about android..Ha ha.. Cheap android smartphones are expected to be launched soon.. I hope i can get an android phone next year or so..
Glad to have helped..
@rajeev/anil: i am praying for you guys to be right.. What about E series devies? I heard that they were cheaper.. I just want to have a smartphone with wifi and good display.. Do guys know about e series? What's the cheapest model with wifi n gud web browser.. I'm tired of waiting..
Help me out..
Oh yeah and for those who asked about how much i bought it for, it's about 275 US dollars, I live in Jordan and here Nokia phones arrive too early.
just got news it was launched in US & HONG KONG
SO it close 2 b launched in other Asian market 2
Well, concerning the battery life am still testing that, but i expect it would last the same as the 5800's battery lasts.
WiFi connectivity is excellent, it doesn't drop the signal.
I'm still waiting for my phone certificate to install the application i installed on the 5800, so tomorrow you will have the answer for that.
Music comparison will be done tonight, i'll get back to to inform you.

Have some patience ...even me can't beleive its price will be 17k in any chance....
As previously said it will not cross more 12.5 to 13k.
Just wait and see buddy....
Plzzz don't go for second hand phones...Now a days u have so many choice than y to go for second hand....
I prefer LG cookie against samsung star...Sound quality is good in cookie as compared to star. and battery life is good in cookie.
Still my bet on 5530..its worth waiting for this phone. Price will certainly be 3 to 4 k less than 5800.....

plzz share the difference.

In a smartphone we can actually install programs like the inbuilt ones. The installation files like in case of symbian smartphones comes in .sis, .blz etc . These are very much similar to the .exe installation files of windows pc. Smartphone works in the exact way as a pc does. In a pc, like in windows the installation files creates a folder containing all the required files to run the program under program files in system drive and also installs all the required plugins and lib files. Well in smartphones it's exactly the same. In sysmbian smartphones the .sis files creates a folder containg all the required files for the program under app folder in system directory of the drive and also installs all the required plugins as well. In windows system you can run programs simply copy-pasting the directory, in smartphone also you can do the same incase of many programs.
but in case of non-smartphone we cannot install any third party application like these, they can only run java application. Simply saying non-smartphones are like the PCs that can run only flash games while smartphones are those in which we can install COUNTER STRIKE...haha..
I am currently using nokia 6600 (a smartphone), it doesn't even have a inbuilt mp3 player ...but no sweat... i can install program to play not only mp3 but almost all famous media files from mp3,wma to mpeg,avi,flv etc.... i can edit office files, can use compression like zip and rar, can use my phone as a universal remote to control tv,vcd,dvd via infrared, i can record videos in avi format, etc etc... That's a SMARTPHONE!!!
i hope you've got the basic idea..
