It support all software of its previous operating system(symbian s60 v3 and v2), because symbian s60v5 contains backward compatibility
this phone is supposed to have a resistive touch screen..i've a HP tablet notebook with a similar screen and its quite a pain to operate coz u need a certain amount of pressure to use it. but the iphone has a capacitive touch screen making the experiance much more pleasant..anyone kno if the 5800 has a good touch experiance coz the video reviews also show the person pressing real hard on the screen..will it be good enough coz i plan to get one
yes it does... it supports apps .. and i've seen Animsprite [Chinese Version] and Screenshot working on it!! How about that?

Many applications that open may not work properly due to the touchscreen nature of the 5800xm. The stereo speakers are the loudest ever produced by nokia. Noth́ng beats them.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I'm not sure, but i think it shouldn't be a problem, i am trying to get the list of models compatible with 5800, as soon as i get em, i can tell u confirm.
I like this phone a lot, fully loaded with features, and I am a big fan of touch screens, so perfect as far as I am concerned. And to a guy below saying that its a mid range phone, if the camera was 5mp he would have been sayin that this is an extremely high end phone and blah blah. Yea i know what high-end phones have, i own one right now, N82.
Does it support installation of 3rd party appz..
Like in OS 9.1/2/3... Are the appz available as of yet??
BADBOY, 17 Oct 2008I think this is one of the best nokia phones...i wish to have this telephoneNoika 5320 & the latest nokia 5800 are made of sme audio chipset . So if u expect that u will get better sound quality in this latest touch phone of nokia , then u r wrong . The sound quality is the same .
So music lovers wht u would spend 580$ after nokia 5800 , where u can get Nokia 5320(Which also supports N-gage gaming) at 230$ ? Its sterio speaker is so weak that it will not let you hear your call in a busy place .

Sad but true It doesn't support any software of its previous operating system . As a result u will have to buy each & every new software that only Nokia releases for this model . Trust me on this fact that this Symbiab OS 9.4 Touch Edition doesn't support any softwares of its previous edition .
Use your brain people , Cause old softwares were not made for touchscreen phones , So how will they work on A new Symbian OS ???
I think this is one of the best nokia phones...i wish to have this telephone
i noticed that people here are complaining about the batery life of nokia phones. that's because they opened apps without noticing they forgot to 'exit' them. "multitasking", hello?

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970You might have tried the prototype or your just lying your butt up. I have tried the proto myself from a good friend, and it works great, the camera works awesome, it can be compared to a Samsung innov8 in broad daylight, the video works great as well with 30fpm. The sound is impressive for the price and i like the comes with music notion. The touch interface is great, i like the haptics, I have an iphone but 5800 gives a different experience. The wifi is in auto search, not like what you have tried, and my friend works in Nokia. You cannot bring a good phone down with your biase comment. I am a Samsung Fan but I was impress with this phone and planning to get one as a Christmas Gift for myself.
