Nokia 5800 XM is a nice phone with a lot of possiblities, ease of functioning and some very annoying gliches.
The phone has great internet surfing experience via opera mobile, dictionaries, video/audio playback through wonderful built in speakers and many other S60 v5 utilities and applications. The display is excellent too.
However, I found the follwing problems:
The software v 30 is unstable and full of errors.
The software v 31 has caused problems in dailing buttons in sunlight. (In shade they work!!).
The phone is bulky.
The battery life is not very good.
The phone looks like a brick when the screen is off ( not very attractive:-)!)
Well, this is best of out of what is available there but you will have to bear with simmilar limitations, that at times irritate you and take a lot of your time to rectify.

didn't you find any tv out cable on your set box?
This Nokia 5800XM is cool, interesting, and useful specially when it comes to Applications.
You will never get bored with this Phone.
Nice User Interface easy to navigate unlike the other touch screen Phone.
Great Tv out functions, to be honest guys i hate the poor quality of Camera may be this phone was designed for music lovers and application users.
Aaaah finally, was able to install the latest firmware v31....it worked much better on the S60 5th edition with the OVI maps much improved...the pitfall is the 7 day free drive license activation which is just a nokia gimmick. I miss my Nokia 6110 Navigator with a built in lifetime license....darn! everything is business...no more good perks out there. The XM is only good for music and audio...although the headphone that comes with it has not improved at all with the lousy earpiece and sponge that breaks down easily...If only Nokia can overcome this flaw...the XM series are winners in their own field. You'll be forced to buy a separate headphone which is a total waste of money...
