Just had an exprience with the demo version from nokia. Its kool...n worth the buy..
SO pre-ordered one by paying a down payment of 2k (price of 20,500) along with the free headset at Kolkata.
The nokia 5800 is a great mobile phone compaired to othere mobile phones like the n96. It many features like touch screen, gps, wi fi, 3.2 inch screen, etc. The bottom line: a great mobile for agood price. I wrote this review from my nokia 5800 using handwriting recognition and it's great. I really recomend this mobile.

It has plenty of applications, games, themes for 5800. Currently the site is down due to unknown reason. Original site is in spanish so make sure to translate it in english. So far i haven't found any better site than this for 5800.
I'm using a samsung Tocco now but does not get on well with it and although it's wondeful, may sell it.
I'm torn between n85 and this beauty.Is it that "big"? Is the tactile screen any better than Tocco?

Go to allaboutsymbian.com, you will find detailed changelog there in 3 or 4th post. The only bug that may cause concern is speaker volume going low during calls. I don't care about few dead pixels here and there. Otherwise it's superb phone.

I just got the 5800 and is damn good....the only problem im facing is the additional softwares...anyone has any websites for free download or cracked versions? Since this phone is running on Symbian OS v9.4, is kinda hard to find any software which is compatible to it. Please post the website if you guys have any to share around.

It's the problem associated with LCD displays. It's not a serious problem though. There's no use replacing the handset because there's no guarranty that your new phone will not have pixel problem.
hi every one,,,,please can anyone till me when or where i can get arabic ui for my new nokia 5800xm
desidude, 25 Dec 2008@ Hema Are you sure they said 19900 ? ok. Then lee me go now and find out here in chennai.D... morehi. i actually just went to a nokia dealer KD Electronics Jaipur (not NPD, you can book it from any nokia dealer/NPD/Nokia Store) and prebooked mine for 19,700rs. paid 2k advance. this is strange cos at the nokia store, its selling for 19990. i asked him why the difference in price, he said that they are exclusive stores and have higher margin. I also came to know later that 19,700 is the DP of the phone. well, god knows whats the actual price. but 19700 seems to be pretty ok. the lowest ive heard in jaipur.
