My first touchscreen, rily satisfied, battery life is great and its easy to use for everything. finally i have a fone capable of browsing the internet, just click links directly, no more using buttons to cycle through 100'eds of links before you find the one you want and then already went 3 links past it... And that is why touchscreen is the only way to go now, buttons is so out.... The calendar says 2010, buying expensive fones with regular keypad now shud no longer be an option for anyone who uses the fone for more than the very basic stuff. For example location parts of a video or song, u can go der directly with touchscreen, just touch or drag the progress bar, u r not limited to FFWD and REV buttons. When trying touchscreen for multimedia/webbrowsing you immediately realize how retarded regular keypads rily are.
5800 deserves some serious minus for the included headset, i dont know how its possible, but it DOES have worse sound than iPod! Must mean someone at Nokia got more hardened earwax than Steve J. I suggest ordering some mid-range Sony earplugs with this fone. I got some high end in-Ear Sony's for mine, still not as good as a real Sony MP3 player but close enough.
free ovi maps for nokia 5800 requires atleast firmware version 31.. i still have version 21.. thats really unfair.. i can't get advantages of version 40 and also i can't get free ovi maps... why nokia not allow all versions to upgrade to version 40???!!!
