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...

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.
