Just curious anybody know if this was the phone use by Morgan Freeman and Christian Bale in the movie Dark Knight where they were in the hongkong scene?
All i can say is that this phone, given its specs here, would be a far more friendly fone than iPhone, for it's likely to give users a lot more flexibility which nokia fones always offer. It maybe expensive but i'd say it's still justifiable for me, well compared to iPhone..

Bakekang and zzz, you love to post here but i havent seen any of your posts in the n85 forum. Why is that?
And for your info, nokia has been making touchscreens for quite some time. This isnt their first one. They do have experience. They learnt from those phones mistakes and instead of using the same OS as before, they decided to use symbian 9.4 s60 on the 5800xm which is more user-friendly and stable. (by the way, they did the same thing with the e90 communicator and look how great it is). So dont talk trash trying to fault the 5800xm. This phone is the best value for money on the market. Go and praise n85 in the n85 forum.
nokia is somewhat recycled redifined its model as you will see in its other model it is simply patching up some features and then come up into another model but if you will analyze its technical features it is somehow putting it and adding it some of the features whis is lacking in their other models wella it is another model again fooling us. why come to create a really tough model phones that suits all of our own taste when looking for some unusual specification..but in fairness..this model will rival the i phone 3G, well for me it is just a n810 model lacking the gsm,edge,hsdpa, capabilities plus the wifi in it and the musix express edition that come in one..
This is not the only touchscreen Nokia produced . But if under symbian s60 series it is !
ipone ipone ipone ipone ipone ipone ipone
copy gps, accelerometer, design, large touchscreen, wlan
should be called inokia
Zzzz, 10 Oct 2008N85 quality, looks and features (5mpx)with the big touch screen of 5800 : that is what i would... moreyou are asking why we are excited? because this phone is almost complete and it is cheap. don't tell me price doesnt matter to you. unless you are a rich person who have money to throw around.
if N85 is the perfect phone for you and bakekang, then buy it and spare us from thrashing 5800. sorry, unlike you we are poor.
and go get bakekang and transfer to N85 opinions and stop injecting nonsense to 5800 opinions section.
This is such a beautiful handset you guys must just speed your deliveries for the South African markert.

as we can all see, this is nokia's market strategy,
first they produce a mobile phone that has lower specs than most of other mobiles(omnia, etc.) to ensure it's affordabilty.
they target the young, because obviously, they hold the largest, if not one of the largest, percentage of the mobile phone market to ensure sales.
then after that, if all is well, they will start to bombard the mobile phone market with touchphones under the N and E series which will, for sure, be more expensive and will sport higher specs.( camera, etc.)
that is what i think..^^
Zzzz, 10 Oct 2008N85 quality, looks and features (5mpx)with the big touch screen of 5800 : that is what i would... moreThat's what I've been trying to say. N85 is the result of Nokia's many experiences. It's engineered to perfection.
This is a great first up foray into the world of touch-screen phones by Nokia - and for the people its marketed to, is ideal.
Reading some of the posts in here, I agree that Nokia will need to come up with something for the higher end of their phone users (those that love the N and E series), that includes:
* Office suite with edit functionality
* 8MP camera
* DivX Player (supported at least)
These are just a few items that spring to mind - but combining the 5800 with an N96 and more functionality would be the ultimate phone. And would certainly kill off its opposition.
My review is about mobile phone cameras.
The Nokia 5800 is one of the best mobiles on the market. Many of you are stressing the camera resolution. So what if it has a 3.2 mp camera. It has a good camera which takes excellent photos. Just like any other camera. When you look at the i8510's 8 mp camera, doesn't it do the same thing as the 5800's camera? Take your pictures!!!! Regardless of the resolution. 8 mp is better but 3.2 mp with carl zeiss gets the job done also. 3.2 mp might seem low to you but that does not change the fact that it will take your photos. Excellent photos!!! You need to stop clicking options to read the picture details and start looking at the damn photo that you took. Many of you just like to see 8 mp written on the lens but dont give a crap about the pictures you took. So stop complaining.
Do I Have A Witness?
I´ve seen it, touch it, play it, ear it and love it. It´s way much better then iPhone. Here´s some great points:
1- Play music on the loudspeaker, loud and clear (AMAZING!!!) best one in the market
2- DAC chip for great audio quality (DJ´s I know what this means ;D)
3- A-GPS with real voice guidance (not a dummy map saying "where am I?" like some others)
4- 4 types of writing: *Full Qwerty *Handwriting recognition (Awesome!!!) *regular mobile phone keypad with large buttons for fingers *Mini Qwerty (smaller view with all keys)
5- Total web experience with Flash player and several Secure protocols certificates included (for Homebanking)
6- Conectivity: you got *Bluetooth 2.0 *Wlan *Micro USB 2.0 (unbelievable!! 1 complete CD transfered to the memory card in less then 30 seconds!!!!) and REAL 3G/HSDPA (3,5G) with 3.6Mbps of download :O!!!
7- MicroSD support with up to 16GB compatibility
8- Totally customisable (you can create your own theme or install new others available on the net)
9- With Symbian S60 you got whatever you want: MSN, loads of games and DIVX players (did I mentioned it has TV-out connection, YES you can view movies on a real TV with 640x360 pixels which is more less VHS)
10- 3.2MP Carl Zeiss lents camera with auto-focus, now that´s great pictures!!!
Well there´s more other things to tell, but these are a iPhone Knock-Out.
will there be a setting to just tap the screen once instead of twice?
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2008Not that it matters but this isnt Nokia's 1st touch screen phone. Cast your mind back 4-5 year... moreActually it's the 4th touchscreen phone by Nokia. There is another handset called 6708 released last 2005. It has a touchscreen display but it also has a keypad. But if you are not considering this phone, then the 5800 is the 3rd touchscreen nokia phone.
