Yeah the iphone started the hype. Yeah and??? Thats all steve jobs did. Started a big fat touchscreen hype. Now everyone wants touchscreen. But what keep us from buying that dumb iphone was the lack of features & performance. Nokia copied the razr v3's design & made the n76 now they copied the iphones design with the 5800. Nokia is just making up for the other companies mistakes to make a better device so the customers can enjoy! Its the way it is and the way it will always be. So get over it people.

This phone is estimated to sell 10million units worldwide according to market experts as the mass market shows eagerness to own onec",
It seems like nokia 5800 is kinda slow in terms of the transition between 1 action to another. Same problem happens to all other touch screen device currently. I would want to get this phone but it seems rather slow.
Is Nokia going to release a firmware to fix this problem?
I do agree iPhone is much faster and smoother, also they have great design but the thing is iPhone is restricted to a lot of stuff and I don't find any flexibility in it sometimes. Kinda irritating.
Listen, iPhone is lame! Only good thing is touch screen. Tha'ts the only revolutionary technology, everything else was in use a long time now.
Now, I have an Ipod touch and the screen is great, but for a hopless camera, I'm not going to pay an extra 300$.
Now facing the facts the screen of the nokia 5800 is smaller and has a better resolution and more colours. And for BT and e-mail etc.. nokia just put more variety so everybody can apreciate its work.
I'm not a nokia fan, on the contrary I like samsung and LG. But with this phone Nokia made a very good step. Defenetly my next phone.
The iphone is all hype: except the screen wath else is revoultionary. Iphone fans if u can't answer this question just leave this forum.

As are all of Apple's products comn... morei agree with the apple thing and soes any one know how mcuh its going to cost cause i heard its going to be $385 and nokia is not stupid and one last thingis this phone bigger then the n81 in terms of size?
Nokia 5800 XpressMusic will go on sale by the end of 2008 only in the following markets :
- Hong Kong
- The UAE
Other markets (UK, North America, China, etc) that aren't included in the above list only be getting the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic in 2009 at the same time.
According to industry analysts, Nokia plans to sell about 10 million touchscreen handsets in 2009. But, I think is that this number won't be reached with the 5800 XpressMusic only.
Revenant, 04 Oct 2008Yeah, but an office would be doing it from a PC, and nobody who needs a business phone is seri... moreYes, and every once in a while you email something from the office to your yahoo or google account, and guess what, it can get pushed to your phone =) So please, do not insist on giving BT file transfer more value than email, because that is just laughable.
A lot of businessmen own iphones, so you are already wrong in saying that they won't even consider the iphone =)
Oh please stop the denial. All this touchscreen mania started right after the 1st gen iphone came out. There were already several touchscreen phones before the iphone, but it's the iphone that started the major trend, so please. People like you just can't accept the iphone's success and popularity, so you'd rather say it's just a hype. No wonder other phonemakers, even Nokia, jumped into the touchscreen bandwagon. Yeah sure, just for the hype of it, lol.
I'm getting my facts right here. Look at all these new touchscreen phones that came out. Do they look like the ones HTC released years ago? No. They all look like the iphone, but you'd just rather play blind and discredit all the wonderful work that Apple put in to the iphone. If anything, you should be thankful to the iphone for raising the bar. I don't think Nokia would lower the prices of their handsets if iphone didn't give them a run for their money. Be fair and honest and give due credit.
Is this phone cheaper than the n82?
& about the camera thing! No one never complianed about the the n73's camera. Only good things were said. Now this generous device offers the same specs and now everyone is complaining. Your comparing it to the n82 when it was aimed to kill the iphone. Just buy the phone, & be merry!
yeh stupid mega pixels from nokia redusing a megapixel for photo taken reason to liquidate other model like n82 and other stupid fone good luck nokia i like samsung
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2008How many people actually communicate with 50 people at a go? Not everyone communicates with a ... moreWell there are situations when I need to send a picture to several people in different locations. With email I can do that, so why would I bother with BT or MMS when I already have email.
I'm sorry but your primitive region not having internet is none of my concern. And if you are in that primitive region, I don't think that even this Nokia phone would be good for you =) Phones like the iphone and other multi-media phones are not for primitive regions my friend. It's for the modern society. And you cannot call a society modern if they do not have internet =)
Oh please, I had the N95 before and my other friend as well, and both of us still use our digital cameras. Can't risk it, especially if you intend to post those pics on My Space or Friendster. But hey, suit yourself w/ your camera phone =)
Honestly, the iPhone is a joke compared to this phone.
As are all of Apple's products comnpared to other companies.
And what it most annoying is the fact that everything begins with the letter "i".
Seriously, Apple is the worst company ever.
Everything about Apple is wierd.
If I'm going to be getting a phone and spending a lot of money, I don't want a phone that has a symbol of a bitten piece of fruit on it...
i think that nokia 5800 is great pnone ....the display is not very good but is ok......many aplications and is a symbian and will not be very expensive.....is gest the start waith for nokia n 98.....you will see soon
Why are people comparing this phone to the iPhone? The Nokia 5800 is a lot better.
It has everything that the iPhone has.
It has several advantages as well:
1. 3.15MP camera w/ flash autofocus and VGA 30fps video
2. higher resolution screen
3. stereo speakers
4. better OS (in my opinion)
5. better build-quality
The initial impressions of some websites may not be completely true, considering that the Nokia 5800 they saw was only a prototype!
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2008Dude, i dont know if you know this, but 5800xm supports e-mail as well. Your in US? Well, if y... moreI know that this phone supports email. All phones w/ internet capabilities do. The more reason why email would be more practical than BT or MMS. But the argument is on giving more importance to MMS and BT over email just so Nokia fans can put down the iphone even though you guys know for a fact that BT file transfer and MMS are mostly used for kids' stuff. If you were to choose between wifi and BT functionality, which one would you honestly choose?
Now, it is nice that the 5800 has those features as well for more options, but it does not make the iphone a poor phone just because it didn't include those features.
On sharing files. I'm sorry but what if your friend who wants that file is 10,000 miles away from you? Can you still BT that file? W/ email you can send a file whether they're right next to you or in a different country. Now which is better?
For updates, I had the N95 before my iphone, and I don't recall ever getting any email or something from Nokia on maintaining my phone's performance. You're pretty much left on your own. With my iphone, I got an email when an update was available, and I also get a notice in itunes. You don't get that kind of service from any phonemaker.
it's a very good phone! I think if it is released...it may overtake iPhone coz it has better features and it is a better alternative.
Why not at least a 5 megapixel camera?????
can't for the life of me understand that. It looks a good machine but could have been just a little better.
looking forward to it's release anyway
