h_edged, 23 Apr 2009This is just another masterpiece of Nokia..
fully loaded of functionality and potential, but ... moreCursed as XpressMusic ???
The way it stands now...XM-series is producing some the finest models in the nokia lineup...
5800XM...nokia's 1st touch screen and gr8 audio quality(best audio quality in any mobile phone at the time of its launce)...and not an N-series...
5310XM...sold over 13 million sets worldwide makes it one of the best selling music phone...also its still one of the best slim mobile
The 5800XM's audio quality was eventually surpassed by SE W995...
and here is nokia's response
5130XM...it has the best audio quality of any nokia phone to date...yes better than 5800XM and W995
5130XM has audio quality that match the latest apple ipod touch...all this for a mere 90 euros...
Guys, I have installed loads applications and would like to share some "must haves" ones with you:
Opera Mini: Obviously a must have for all phones.
Google maps: You will simply love it on this wide screen.
Marble Maze: Superb accellerometer controls, you will get hooked on to this game
Photo browser: Much faster and better graphics than the Gallery.
Symtorrent: haven't tried it yet.
Handwriting calculator: Cool.
Paint pad: Better than "Mobile paint" software.
X-plore: No need to xplain.
Facewarp: Edits closeup photos to make them look funny.
Joikuspot: converts your 5800 into a wifi hotspot.
Gmail client: showing an error.
Youtube client: working fine.

thank you in advance:-)hey...you can definitely install all those.

There is nothing on that web page that a symbian enabled phone cannot do. I have 3 Java dictionaries on my phone, one of which on my SE that hold a huge amount of information. I use them constantly for translating purposes. The 5800 may not be the most capable Symbian smartphone, but then again, neither was Series 60 8.0 back in the day.
This is just another masterpiece of Nokia..
fully loaded of functionality and potential, but just damn well priced..!
that's why in just about 6 months since it launch it sells 2,8 millions!
See that poorly-armed but unashamely-overpriced iPhone 3G toy, that's just a toy-phone for those who retard enough to see things only by it looks n bucks..
don't get any idea why did Apple not die yet with that public-fooling works..sigh..
For those who curious enough why did Nokia sell this rig with such a nice price, its the proccessor ARM11 369Mhz that truly not enough to handle such a highest-res touchscreen cell ever had till that time before, that explains why this rig didn't named as n-gage series, lacks of hi quality material n optimal preloaded multimedia function so didn't labeled as N-series, & no preloaded office application then didn't lined as E-series..
But it's just enough to play music greatly to fight iPod but targeted to compete the iPhone onward on pricing, so it cursed as XpressMusic..
But then it results to great benefit for us who really know what rig we buy with the awesome price-performance it have..
Enough judging, for those who want to optimize their lovely 5800XM, just go to the forums where's the traffic of this rig's apps, games, n solutions run fast..!
Here some forums should be visit:
Happy exploring n optimize ur 5800XM to it's limit! :)

There's a big difference in that. Basically a java enabled Sony Ericsson can do most of the things that an Iphone can be triked out to do by means of the AppStore. And I know because my secondary phone is the SE K320. You would be amazed with the amount of applications that this very basic phone can run. And I forgot to mention that the Iphone is not a smartphone mainly because it lacks multitasking. So if you can turn a blind eye to the fact that it doesn't have the same software backup as symbian and still think of it as a smartphone OS, it would be like comparing MS DOS with Windows... I was actually considering buying an Iphone because they cost about as much as the 5800 on a contract (the only way to go for me), but after watching some app reviews on the net I came to realize that most of the Iphone's apps are games. What I don't understand is how can someone say that the Iphone has the greatest app library of any smartphone! By simply considering Java applications that a symbian can run (especially Java games) I don't see how Apple can get away with that obvious lie. I don't want to offend any Iphone users. If anything, I only wish you the best of luck considering you jumped abord on a relatively new platform right away; something I cannot do. However, the Iphone is stil a long way away from symbian as far as application flexibility goes. What Nokia and Symbian in general is lacking is a single place to get all the applications one needs. I am not bothered by that and actually think this is a good thing; this way only those who realise what this platform is capable of will exploit it. The rest will still say that symbian isn't as attractive as the Iphone's UI and should most probably do as their hearts desire...
I bought this phone 1 week ago , and it is very good phone u can get

There is no way that iPhone Apps can be written in Java, to think so is very naive.

GSMArena says Nokia 5130XM audio quality is comparable to the latest Apple ipod touch 2G and is the best audio quality on any nokia set to date...
now what do you think??? NOKIA RULES MUSIC
We can expect 5330XM, 5630XM and 5730XM to have this same audio quality...
Pepsi, Queen of Trol, 23 Apr 2009Pot, meet kettle. If Nokia bought a phone out like the iPhone you would love it, even if it... moreActually, if Nokia made a phone just like the Iphone, it still would have been nothing like the Iphone. The reason I, for one like Nokia (particularly symbian) so much is the fact that Nokia really back up their phones with proper software. Nokia Maps is just an example. Most Iphone apps are games (poor for that matter) and simple applications that can run on most java enabled phones. Basically, if you look hard enough on the net, you can find almost all of the Iphone's apps in .jar format. Symbian is not only more powerful, but it has a lot more applications available. I am currently using the N70 but I am considering upgrading with the 5800 when the application database becomes large enough. Just out of curiosity, is there a blacklist application available for the Iphone? How about one to use the inbuilt camera flash as a flashlight? O! Wait! The Iphone doesn't have a flash... Figures... Also as far as I know, the Iphone has no application similar in functionality with FExplorer that gives the user acces to the file tree of the phone. Still, the Iphone is a good solution for people who only need an eye-candy user interface for their phone, although with so many touch-enabled phones curently available on the market, touchscreens aren't so hot anymore... The Iphone is nice to look at, but it's functionality is only skin deep. I don't consider it to be a smartphone and that is the main thing that sets the 5800 and the Iphone apart...
therock, 23 Apr 2009People bought iphones only because of the name brand!Pot, meet kettle.
If Nokia bought a phone out like the iPhone you would love it, even if it was exactly the same. Don't try and deny it, that's what being a Nokia Fan Boi is! Don't quit your day job.
Though I must say, at first I was against the iPhone for that reason, however after using it and becoming familiar with what it's purpose was I realised what a great phone it was!
I have used the 5800 and it was a complete dissapointment. It's just like every other Nokia but it has a touchscreen! There's nothing new! No shiney new interface, same old boring Nokia. It's hardly an upgrade from something like an iPhone for most people. Then again it really is all in the way you intend on using it.
Rumor has it that the v21.0.025 is on its way and it supposed to enhance the camera performance, new home screen design. no changelog or anything more precise is available at the moment but it’s still good news for all of your 5800 owners.
I its out for HK ! anyone frm HK here ??
yeah, i just bought it yesterday and it works so good, no comment, for now.
