This phone costs $998 in Brunei, that is 688USD. For once i thought it would be around $600 Brunei because I've been doing some research, and some said it costed around 279EURO, which is far expensive when converted. If it was 279EURO, shouldnt cost around 900+ in Brunei. Take a look at the new Nokia N97. Worth a check before thinking of buying the Nokia 5800.
Janz, 05 Dec 2008In Indonesia, we can get original Nokia 5800 with US$400... very cheap i guess... :)what do you mean by original 5800??
Pharoahs, 05 Dec 2008it is really got great and wide specs but Nokia should put in consideration tyhe price compare... moreYeah this kind of calculation is not fer, you shall not compare iphone with this nokia N97 or 5800, because the iphone first of all is a low phone profile..., no copy and paste, no front camera for conversation, the camera is bad quality and no posible software control and cant record video at all, bluetooth is just hanging with it, cant do a damn thing, cant transfer files with friends, and only dedicated web places you are able to pickup software, and it's slow surfing thing, no SMS reply, No multimedia mesages service, an I guess for aple was better to give a joystick to iphone and give to kids to play nintendo games with it, that's all!
It would bee fer you guys, you should better compare iphone with this cheapest older phones that they qualify with the same results, of course some of them even they are old, they are capable sending/receiving MMS, and operational bluetooth..., they'll win maybe!
For now Nokia N97 and nokia 5800 are super mobile computer, with all possibilities, send end receive, upload and download files thru bluetouth or network wi-fi or any connection, cameras in front for conferencing or 3.2/5MP for taking grate pictures or VIDEO DVD cuality, and wot more do you want to hear about it...., Multimedia Mobile Computer on Pocket!
Hi, I only say one thing, is the better mobile of now.
Recording video = 640x480 - 2600 kbps - 60 fps - 48000 hz - 96kb/s
nokia n96 = 640x480 - 3600 kbps - 29 fps - sound = 48000 hz - 96kb/s
htc touch hd = 352x288 - 383 kbps - 30 fps - sound = 8000Hz
omnia = 320x240 - 805 kbps - sound = 8000Hz
If you prefer quality = nokia n96 or if you prefer quality and real time = nokia 5800 :) enjoy it!
This Phone Sucks!! Made of cheap really quality, on screen keyboard is NO good! Don't spend your money, Wait for N97!!
it is really got great and wide specs but Nokia should put in consideration tyhe price compared to the i-Phone

In Brunei Darussalam its cost BND$998 equivalent to US$668 and Euro 545 with 8gb memory card..wow..very..very..very..expensive...too far away from 249 Euro what Nokia price plan...perhaps have to wait 2-3months before the price goes down to at least US$400...

This is the first touchscreen device from Nokia, running on Symbian. This has a huge potential to become a market ruler because of its balanced specs with new technology. This is basically a crossover device with present Symbian facade and future touch based approach. If Nokia can get the things working right in place and offer a competitive price, as they have planned earlier, this could be a huge hit, just like N95. Nokia should not be just greedy and raise the price to fetch more profit in short term. They can offer competitive price and grab this opportunity to gain a space in touchscreen market.
In this scenario, Shouldn't we expect an expert review of the device on offer from GSMArena Team?
