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

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...
