Hong Kong released it over the weekend. The MSRP is $3980 HKD which is about $512 USD. Way cheaper than HTC Touch Diamond & Touch Pro & Xperia X1 & iPhone. Can't really compare the OS with WinMo though. The processor speed is not as fast as the phones running WinMo, but I think that it is fast enough cuz Symbian OS doesn't need as much as WinMo when it comes to processor speed. Saw a few reviews from a Hong Kong site and all positives except for some bug with the browser when it is reading chinese sites. I find it a little thick for a non-qwerty touchscreen phone though. Touch Diamond is only 11mm thick and this thing is 15.5mm thick. Touch Pro is abou 18mm with a full qwerty keyboard.
Anyone in the UK had any dealings with or know if these guys at GC's PC's are genuine?
i think it is too slowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!
369 mhz cpu and 81 mb of RAM is not enough for this type of os.
Why are you lying us about the price? From 280 euro up to 510 is a big difference.
recently i have the opportunity to see this phone. One of my friend bought the phone. But i dont like the design of the set and also the os speed. Nokia should go for high speed processor coz its a touch phone. But the multimedia features are really good. So its up to u what u like?
I bet this is gonna be a real Eye catching handset, I am damn sure that this is far beyond an Apple-i-phone, where many simple features are missing. But truely this will beat the markets catch. Now I am worried about the launching, I mean when will it be coming to the market. Hope Nokia will make it a bit offordable to normal people. I am talking about the Price, Thank You-Nokia.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970was looking for it and found this
whr it says it is available at $537 USD,
I found this the lowest price yet....
but not sure that Sn traders. is reliable or not,
anyone did experience with them ?
5800 opening sale in HongKong is another hit!
congrats Nokia.. 5800 no doubt is the most anticipated and the most sold phone this season. c",
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Ya i compared it with the n95 8gb but people dont see the differance so the 5800 489.99? Sortof
Edqe ? The service determined by what frequency the phone comes with so you have. Lol they you dont have a 3g phone compatible in your country . One touch access on pc suite
If price is more then i will go for HTC Touch HD which is more equal to iphone
i hope it will not be as costly as iPhone or X1 Xperia.. both the phones are really far away from our financial reach... if this one wil also above Rs.20K then it will be failure.. i mean they wont be able to sell more numbers

It's plastic covered.Thanks Singlelayer...
Thats disappointing, i'd prefer the hard glasas stuff iphone use for there touch. I used the samsung omnia for 2 weeks and it has a plastic touch screen and it was horrible as and it scratched easily too.
