Anyone in the UK waiting for this phone, I called Nokia today and they said it will be available for pre-order before Xmas (sometime in the next week) for a delivery in January. When I asked how much it was likely to be, the operator said 'around £350'. I then asked why, at the London (and Singapore) official announcements, Nokia said it would be €279 -the guy froze up, seemed to get out of his comfort zone and said he couldn't comment, but just to 'wait and see'. Hmmm...
Any which way I'll shall be placing my pre-order next week, but I can't help thinking the price announcement was just a blatant lie by Nokia in order to generate extra publicity.
My side now 460usd. Anybody can tell me what is different between made by nokia and finland. My only by nokia

oh!!!! it's so ugly man . sound is also so poor . noway a music phone. go for SONY.
If u observe , GSMarena spends almost a fixed amount on the reviews of phones.
since, they spent for INNOV8 and TOUCH HD in these 30-40 days period , they would have ran out of money to put hands on the popular 5800 .
I hope they will not review Xperia, if they do they will not review other phones for the next two months !
The phone is n0w in brunei..N the price is too xpensive..B$928,plz anyb0dy tell me h0w can i get it cheaper than that price..Especially bruneian in this f0rum.. P/s:sorry poor english..
alex, 17 Dec 2008this is a very fakeeeeeeeeeee fone pls dont buy it sonyericsson w980 is better than this i... morei don´t know about w980, but my brother has g900 which uses a newer version of viq, same processor, and it´s really damn slow! it´s for a reason that sonyericsson pulled out from the viq segment!
no bashing of any phone companies please........
its according to preferance that each should buy the mobile and not that nokia is good than sony and all
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970i´d go definitly for 5800,, it´s almost half the price, UI much faster, better audio quality,, xpreia maybe with better build-quality, has a keyboard, screen slightly higher in reslution,has many apps out already,, but expria is so slow as many have stated, coz the OS uses most of the ram , so shifting from an app to another would take up to 20 seconds some times,, so unless they figure out something for that, expria is not worth it´s money,,,
w980 nothing but a phone with a software only
no dedicated music chip(don't say w980, all those walkman phone also don't have)
no 3.5MM port but come with an useless adapter
this is a very fakeeeeeeeeeee fone
pls dont buy it
sonyericsson w980 is better than this
i regret buying it!!!!!!!!!!!!
