This thing is ready to go now -the N97 looks truly awesome but I don't think we'll see it until mid-summer '09 (I know they've said Q2, but it'll be the back end of that if indeed it's not late). Then, most people will need to wait a month or two for the price to reach 'non-hype' levels.
So anyone that's waiting on N97, it's gonna be a long ride (and those of us who do get the 5800 will have a head start with the new touchscreen OS)!
P.S. -No FM transmitter...neither has the N97 (nor iPhone ;-)
the N97 have been unleashed, my dream phone come true..
all the best feature, the most gorgeous design, fastest procesor, biggest battery, newest features, etc.. to be sold at $699
really there's no point comparing x5800 with the iphone. but for those of us who needs a winner, quick suggestion "nokia n97 vs iphone". let the battle begin!
Nokia N97 has been announced. Few notable specs are- 32gb onboard memory with 16gb expandable. S60v5, nHD 3.5 inch display, ngage support, slide qwerty, 5mp cam, expected prize 550 euro and availability june 2009. I will still be buying 5800 since i can neither afford N97 nor wait till june.
I'm waiting for it's review to be published. I agree that the hardware of the iPhone is great but it lacks functionality, MMS, msg fwd etc. When compared to sony's phone, yes it lacks physical keyboard.. But I really don't need a physical keyboard. This smartphone's functionality is better than any mobile out there.. Just read it's specs..
This phone is really good performance unlike I-phone, coz i just changed from i-phone to this one
i don't like mac-os on i-phone every time i transfer the file via i-tune to the stupidest iphone
---------- i phone is suck -----

Nokia's release dept. is sure becoming less than thorough. The 5800 user guide (online pdf) still has markup comments by one ikinalcz saying: Validator: content should be replaced with "blablabla"!! The usual photograph of the phone on the front page is also missing!!

1. the touch screen is ok. responses at my slightest touch, thou i hate to touch twice in the main manu.

3. the loudspeaker is simply awesome!! 1of the best i've heard.
4. the video watching experinence is the best.
5. the camera is fairly good...the video recordin is cool.
6. the USB transfer speed is preetty fast.
7. I'm havin troubl installin softwares, it supports very few...& i failed to get its version of quick office, PDF and ZIP...anyone can help me with it???

http://www.howardforums.com/show... moreHey man check http://www.timtechs.com/nokia_5800_xpressmusic_unlocked_prd656.html i think that's about the same price and i trust them more than the other website...
I love this phone, every time i check or read some people compare it the the Apple one..Stop doing that, there is no need it's an awesome device of its own.. And those who don't like it try it before.. and after then you can intelligently say that it's a bad phone.
