Usman Qureshi, 05 Oct 2008Actually nokia is the best.............! Dnt want to say that all other brands are of no use.... moredude nokia copied the iphone. Face the facts. They want to rule the market so they copy copy copy. & this is not the first time!! they copied other brands too. Nokia would never make this 5800 if it wasnt for the popular iphone. ( well maybe at a later date). And for your information I hate that stupid iphone am a nokia fan. Lol. Se samsung apple and nokia are not friends. They hate each other. So they copy ideas from one another to make a better product so think again. They only share the symbian os thats all.

IS That Clear to Every One there...........!
Why does everyone think that this phone is meant to compete with the likes of iPhone or G1??? Nokia is not a one flavor cellphone maker, like Apple who has various MP3 players for different customers(Shuffle, Nano, Classic, and Touch); Nokia makes various Cellphones, Smartphones(Classic, XpressMusic, E-series, and N-series) to fit multiple customers needs. This phone is not Nokia's response to the iPhone or G1 or any other Touch based phone, this is Nokia's first stab at the Music Market which Apple dominates(in the U.S. for the most part; thus it's under Nokia's XpressMusic line up and not their Stronger N-Series Smartphones).
The price announced is killer for one very cool reason... It includes a one year subscription to Nokia Music, which Nokia will launch in the U.S. first quarter 2009. With that subscription, you have unlimited song downloads that are DRM locked to your phone and PC, but yours to keep forever without giving them back like other services ask you to do. After that there is a la carte option subscription, which by my guess will be very competitive to other music services. And if that wasn't enough, everyone should read the specs that the new S60 5th edition OS has to offer(which had been under developing long before the touch crazed hit the U.S.). It not only offers improved copy and paste functionality(over the existing system on all S60 devices), but FULL Web Browser(with Flash Video support, which was already present in S60 3rd Edition FP2 devices) on a new High Resolution(640x360) 16:9 aspect Screen to name a few.
And with all this said, this phone is still under Nokia's mid-range line up; which in the end makes you wonder just how much you're paying for an iPhone or G1 that claim to be High-End?

Risktaker, 05 Oct 2008First look is killing :-)i like it..it seems to be less wider than iphone..yep, it's design, which is i think less wider than iphone, makes it better
First look is killing :-)i like it..it seems to be less wider than iphone..
well i excetped this phone to have N-Gage support.It WILL BE really cool.
i think what gsmarena wrote about the camera or internal memory is true.,
coz, you see, this phone is a music based phone, so the camera's quality may not be the best, and if this phone already use external memory, then a bigger internal memory will be useless, 10mb is already big enough
redtooth, 05 Oct 2008I love this Nokia phone!!! It would probable be and iPhone killer based on specs and price! Bu... moreAre you seriously going to take 8 MP images using a cell phone? I don't even do that with point-n-click digital camera, I'd pick SLR for it because for such a huge image I need the best image quality. What good is 8 MP, 10 MP, 27 MP camera on a cell phone???? In case you don't know, the MP dictates how big the image size can be produced, not the quality of the picture. 8 MP camera doesn't guarantee highest quality/clarity of an image, it only guarantees the maximum size that can be produced. It could be a mosaic looking image with a huge size, which is rubbish. Many people still think that bigger MP = higher quality...wrong...
I love this Nokia phone!!! It would probable be and iPhone killer based on specs and price! But i hope what's written in the gsmarena specifications isn't final... i was hoping that this phone would have bigger internal memory (about 100mb and above, at least a 5MP camera, and HSDPA 7.2mbps!. I'd think twice before buying this phone because Samsung has M8800 Pixon which has 8MP camera and a bigger internal memory and HSDPA 7.2mbps, although i think its not symbian but still its a big major difference with the 5800 xpressmusic. Also HTC has Touch HD which has 5MP camera and a windows mobile interface.
I'll cross my fingers 'till the final anouncement about this phone spece is made. Hihihihi!
