"In Britain, Nokia seems to be struggling to meet demand as channels run out of stock on a regular basis," said CCS Insight analyst Geoff Blaber.
Analyst Tero Kuittinen from GC Capital said Nokia could ship more than 2.5 million 5800s in the January-March quarter, matching rough estimates for iPhone shipment volumes.
"Outside the US market, it is emerging as 'the poor man's iPhone' - a device with clunky and old-fashioned software, but much cheaper price, better camera quality, lower weight and far superior stand-by time," he said.
Anonymous, 15 Apr 2009hi!i'm planning to buy this phone,is this phone has better feature(except camera)than of n95 8... moreFor me, N82 is better than N95 8GB because of the card slot and the xenon flash. See the pics captured by the N82 over the N95 8GB in the net, you'll understand. Anyways, if your still thinking, just buy the damn N82.
BTW, here is a list on other top phones.
Top 5 Phones on my List
1) Nokia 5800 - loud excellent music player with smart phone functions yet it has a plastic toy feeling on it. BTW, it only sold 14 MILLIONS sold in 2 months.
2) N82 - best 5MP phone out there yet its ergonomic is not the best there is.
3) N85 - no lag, video cam is great, stylish, decent 5MP cam
4) E71 - stylish, built for heavy texting and emailing
5) Samsung i8510 INNOV8 - all-around 8MP yet bulky
C905, iphone is mediocre. Xperia is also nice but I don't rely on WinMo.
