People buying Nokia Phones in India..
1.Do always check the specifications on the nokia India website.
2. The phone you are buying would most probably a watered down version of the phone available else where.
(a) For example the 5800 XM in India looses its TV out..(NO Video Cable Nokia CA-75U)
(b) 5235 looses its 512mb NAND memory and gets replaced by a 256mb NAND, so you would have 71mb in the c/: folder..as opposed to the 320mb available to people world wide.
3. The specs you read about in most sites are not always true about local versions of cell phone models.
Nokia has changed OK! It is not the same thing any more, don't just trust some brand blindly and give them all your money... there could be better alternatives. at least check them up.

Sungod, 08 Jul 2010Hey if u want to compare the phone compare with a touch phone not a keypad phone and u forget ... morehey another person thinking I am dis-respecting the Nokia 5800, I am not, i actually like the phone. If this was meant to be just an entertainment phone they could have got away with just Sybian 40 software but they havent they have used S60 (ok S60 ver 5) whereas all the E series phones previous (like E52) had S60 (ver 3) so e52 was a great phone and the specs/usability of the menu's features were good. maybe if they would have applied the same features of E52 to this Nokia 5800 (I know it might be incompatible with touchscreen) but if they did keep the features of the E52 (such as the phonebook and the active screen to name a couple)then this phone would have been better - What do you mean it is an entertainment phone? - it has a lot of business features too especially in the way of good calendar, to do list and converter and world clock and ability to load office programs so its not just aimed at music listeners!

Anonymous, 08 Jul 2010You are wasting your time talking rubbish about this phone like that, you take it as it is if ... moreyou mis-understand I was not dis-respecting the phone or its features, I actually like the phone and think it has lots of good features. I only listed (personally for me) where I think Nokia could have improved on this phone and hopefully help people decide when wanting to buy one with detailed specifications/using details but you have took it wrong way.
guys if you want to check the latest firmware update?? go to nokia website or tube5800.com that is the most reliable source that i know so far. but if there is a news or a leak that there will be new version update, pls notify all the 5800 users here thnx :))
