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

Karim, 04 Oct 2008Small CPU 369 Mhz?!!369 is very fast for symbian handsets. It isnt too small.
hey guys wats up? i got this new mobile it is realy good. i miss mine because mine feel down the toilet when i done a number 2 if you no what i mean.make sure yours doesnt
bye love you guys
i hoped you enjoyed my view
Very nice specs for the price 390USD, but the new OS looks very ugly, come on Nokia you can do better, even the new Android OS looks better...
One kiddy phone, if I were to listen to music if would use the thing called iPod and I leave my phone alone to make/receive important calls and text messages. I may want to buy it for my kids so they can listen to music while learning how to use a cell phone without having to expect or make important calls. Indeed a good phone for 6th graders...
Great phone! at last nokia does some touchs it the market
i think 450 us dollars is very nice to buy this phone, but if it was a 5 mp camera phone, it will become the best in the market.
Our society wants you to buy always more things because they are "new". Do you believe the void in your soul will be filled by this gadget ? Think, my friend...
i think nokia call it mid-range just to insult iPhone
because nokia 5800 is much better than iphone
so iphone should be low-range
