Before this they made 2 internet tablets, the Nokia 7710 and another phone with a touch screen. I advise you to read the instruction manuals provided with the phone if you don't have any idea what you're about to do. Before posting such statements get your facts right!

20 Reasons Why Nokia 5800 is better than Apple Iphone
Here are some reasons we believe Nokia 5800 is way ahead than Iphone-
The iphone is bigger in size and uneasy for one hand grip. Nokia 5800 is designed to fit well into your hands. Being smaller in width, its easy to operate single handedly.
Iphone size: 115.5 X 62.1 X 12.3 mm
Nokia 5800 size: 111 X 51.7 X 15.5 mm
Iphone is much bulkier than Nokia 5800. Nokia 5800 is 25g lighter than Iphone in weight.
Nokia 5800: 109g
3) Screen Resolution
The Iphone has 3.5” screen while Nokia 5800 has 3.2” but the resolution of 5800 is far more superior to Iphone.
Iphone: 480 by 320
Nokia 5800: 640 by 360
Iphone comes with two options- 8GB & 16GB internal memory. Nokia has a more flexible option to offer 8GB with micro SD card which is expandable upto 16GB. Nokia owners can expand memory size according to needs which the Iphone guys can’t do.
5) Input Methods
Iphone: Finger only.
Nokia 5800: Finger, stylus, plectrum, handwriting recognition.
Apple Iphone has lots of missing features like cut and paste function, saving email attachments, no support for third party headphones, ringtones, applications, many software bugs and other technical glitches. Nokia 5800 Tube has no such issues plus many more amazing features included.
Iphone: Black for 8 & 16 GB, White for 16 GB only.
Nokia 5800: Red, Blue and Black.
8 ) Battery
Nokia 5800 provides upto 35 hrs of music playing time against Apple Iphone which claims just 24 hrs. Overall battery power (talktime/standby) is also about 30% more in Nokia 5800. What more, 5800 has a removable battery which Iphone lacks.
Iphone: 5 hrs talk-time, 300 hrs standby, not removable.
Nokia 5800: 8.8 hrs talk-time, 406 hrs standby, removable battery.
Iphone: 2 MP, no flash, no zoom, no additional camera.
Nokia 5800: 3.2 MP, Flash, 3x digital zoom with Carl Zeiss lens. A second camera in front is available for video calling/conferencing.
10) Video Calling
Iphone: No Video calling possible in Iphone.
Nokia 5800: Video calling is possible.
11) Video Recording
IPhone: No option for video recording.
Nokia 5800: Video recording is included.
12) Music Service

Nokia 5800: “Comes with music” service is bundled with Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic phone by which you can download as much music as you want for 1 year- FREE!!
13) Voice Dialing

Nokia 5800: Available
14) Voice Recording

Nokia 5800: Available
Iphone: Bluetooth is available for just handsfree, no file sharing possible.
Nokia 5800: Bluetooth available for handsfree and file sharing is possible. Better audio quality on bluetooth in 5800 with A2DP technology which Iphone lacks.
Iphone: It does not support message forwarding, multiple SMS deletion, sending SMS to multiple recipients and multimedia messages (MMS).
Nokia 5800: All the above is possible plus it has MMS ver 1.3, message size upto 600kb, and automatic resizing of Images for MMS.
Nokia 5800 is hopefully unlocked (without any contract) and will sell much cheaper for just £219 in UK which is equal to 279 Euros or $385.
Apple iPhone 3G, on the other hand, with contract in US comes for $199 & $299 for 8 & 16 GB models and the plans with AT&T are way too expensive. Unlocked Apple Iphones sells for around $800 on Ebay.
In other parts of the world, the 8GB unsubsidized Iphone model costs 499 euros ($700) in Italy, 350 pounds ($620) in UK, $700 in India. Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic is expected to sell around the world for about $400 or below.
Nokia: Ages of experience, hundreds of success stories and dozens of smart handsets in current portfolio. Nokia has about 40% market share with the No.1 spot with no close competitors. Certainly the king when it comes to brand value, service and experience.
Apple: First phone ever launched by Apple is Iphone, no prior experience in the telecom market. It’s a novice in the market with a very less market share despite having millions of Iphone sold.
Almost all the major brands around the world like Samsung, HTC, LG, etc launched their touchscreen smartphones with a hope to beat Apple’s Iphone. No-one came close to Iphone when it comes to looks, style, feel and features.
This is the first time a tech giant like Nokia has hit it hard with its first true touchscreen smartphone. Nokia 5800 is a real Iphone killer with way ahead features, perfect looks and great price. Bravo Nokia, Well Done!!

Kurt, 16 Aug 2009(Corrected)Im planning to buy this phone, kinda have a problem with my budget so i need to sav... moreThe latest firmware is ONLY available to certain product codes, not all. It will take awhile to be available to the whole world. So you will most probably get the V21 with your device.
Even without the latest firmware you can experience kintec scrolling with your phone's web browser. and yes that's the same thing which the iphone has.
There are quite a number of applications available for this phone. and one of the best sites I have come across for S60V5 applications is www.mobicreed.com. And if you're willing to pay a few bucks there are more. And though you are a student I'm sure you can manage to buy those becasue those aplications are not that expensive.
And depreciation is a common thing in this work. EVERYTHING is effected by it. And mind you, if you're planning to buy a phone as an INVESTMENT just forget about the whole idea of buying as you're not buying a house or a land which increases value with time.
And even Nokia hasn't announced a date regarding the V31 release date so there's no way in the word for someone in this forum to help you with that.
Remember, a phone can never be an INVESTMENT.
Decide carefully. God Luck!
